Ashana Crichton, Arc Growth
'Ashana Crichton is an ICF Certified Leadership Coach, Energy Leadership Master Practitioner and Principal of Arc Growth. Within her practice, she works with mid-career women, helping them adopt a more strategic approach to their professional lives. Through coaching, they increase self-awareness and harness values-based behaviors to make career gains AND achieve a more fulfilling work/life balance.
Ashana started Arc Growth after a 15-year career in Advertising; working hard, playing hard and feeling ragged and defeated as a result. For her, moving from the UK to the US and STILL feeling like she was capable of more was the impetus to start living her own professional brand. She now uses her infectious energy to inspire other women to make their ‘what if’ their reality.'
