John Bond

Lead Trainer

  • It’s fun to introduce this Lead Trainer with a slight play on words, a British accent, and just a hint of drama reminiscent of Ian Fleming’s 007 character. His name is Bond—John Bond! Fictional MI6 agent aside, John volunteers, “I’m really just a nerd who loves technology, spending time with my family and Labrador retrievers, and riding roller coasters whenever I can.”

    Best described as having the heart of a teacher, John’s soul is surely that of a life-long learner. Self-motivated in his pursuit of knowledge, he enthusiastically creates tools and resources to make his and other’s lives easier.

    John’s background as a professional development trainer and consultant extends 29 years while working as a former administrator in the field of education. His company is JLB Coaching and Consulting at The company motto is Creating the Life You Love which centers around Life and Career Transition for those trying to reignite excitement to live and lead with passion and authenticity.

    One of John’s key life philosophies is that everyone is worthy of dignity, love, and respect. His approach to life is to maintain a sense of wonder, to have fun, provide service, and create meaningful connections along the way.

    Watching people succeed at something they didn’t believe they could, makes him smile.“I heard it said, your day is nothing more than a string of stimuli.” John said, “ Being able to realize your greatest source of strength is not in the circumstances or the people around you, it’s in you. Your circle of influence, therefore, is to look inward, not outward, and then ask, what do I choose to do?”

    John shares drawing inspiration from nature, and his love of travel . . . especially by means of a very well-appointed cruise ship
Nina Cashman

Lead Trainer

  • Should you ever find yourself in the presence of Nina Cashman while she’s passionately advocating for something she cares about, take good notes. A skilled conversationalist, Nina has equipped herself to think and act simultaneously—drawing on her knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight.

    “The philosophy and teachings of iPEC were a big draw for me. I was blown away by how much it resonated. Just minutes into the first training module, I recall thinking, “I’m so lucky I chose this training program. Now I’m immersed in the Happiness Studies Academy course. I get up early to read and think about it.” She continued, “I’m a philosopher at heart, and totally content hanging out with Plato.”

    Nina became an iPEC Certified Professional Coach in 2013 and promptly left her role as a successful corporate marketing leader, 17 years in the making, to pursue her passion for developing people. In 2014 Nina launched her private practice, Pave Your Way, with the guiding principle being—the most important brand a person can build is their own. She believes successful brands are created by people who pave their own unique path, guided by their own hearts above all else. Nina primarily coaches executives and corporate clients transitioning in their careers.

    Nina is also an ICF Professional Certified Coach and an iPEC Lead Trainer since 2016.

    On a personal note, Nina and her husband eloped on July 4th 2009. They forgot the marriage license for the occasion, so were officially wed July 5th. As a self-proclaimed introvert, Nina says it’s the simple things in life that light her up most—time in nature, and fun activities enjoyed with her husband and her #1 clients—her two young sons.

Kenya Haupt

Lead Trainer

  • If there’s a common thread that jumps off the page when looking at Kenya Haupt’s 35 years of experience working in Corporate America before starting her own coaching business, it’s her love of working with people.

    Whether she was in a role focused on college recruiting, human resources, or corporate social responsibility, Kenya often found herself in roles that involved supporting others. And no wonder! It only takes a few moments of being in her presence to sense how much Kenya truly values her interactions with others.

    Today, Kenya is an iPEC Certified Professional Coach, an Energy Leadership™ Index Master Practitioner, and Lead Trainer—where her adventurous, silly spirit and her love of learning really get to shine. She also holds a Professional Certified Coach credential through the International Coaching Federation.

    Through her coaching business, Change Your Game Coaching, Kenya primarily works with individuals who are either seeking a promotion or have recently received a promotion and are working on acclimating themselves to a new role quickly and successfully.

    She has also enjoyed working with many college students who are navigating through job searches or considering continuing with a Masters or PhD program and beyond. No matter who she’s working with, witnessing others’ transformations never gets old.

    Don't let impressive credentials fool you! Kenya also brings her eccentric, fun personality in full force to everything she does. In fact, that commitment to showing up authentically and at full volume plays a huge role in Kenya's guiding philosophy for life.

    “When you believe in the power of your voice, you create endless opportunities to change your life, your work, and the world.”
Wendy Irwin

Lead Trainer

  • Wendy Irwin is as creative as she is quirky. She's straightforward, plainspoken, and as authentic as they come. She calls this signature style her ‘stank,’ which encompasses 1,001 idiosyncrasies and personality quirks. And when she skillfully blends that ‘stank’ with her long and winding road of professional experience—from starting out as an opera singer, to then becoming a handbag designer, to her work as a mentor for entrepreneurs—she creates magic in her role as a Lead Trainer.

    Of course, Wendy is quick to credit her experience going through the iPEC Coach Training Program as an important part of her journey, and one that allowed her to step into this bright-shining version of herself.“I believe the opportunity that iPEC gave me to truly be vulnerable in a safe space that launched me into astronomical growth that would have normally taken a lifetime.”

    Ask anyone who knows Wendy and they’ll tell you she genuinely loves witnessing people forging their own paths, and stepping into who they truly are.

    This passion of Wendy’s is made evident through her work with Redefiners, a group of adventurous trailblazers who are ready to carve a new path built from a powerful sense of knowing and who are ready to bend a few rules so they can transform their lives, disrupt their industry, or break free from the status quo.

    Today, Wendy is an iPEC Certified Professional Coach, an Energy Leadership™ Index Master Practitioner, and she holds a Professional Certified Coach credential through the International Coaching Federation. But don’t let that long list of impressive credentials fool you! Wendy also brings her eccentric, fun personality in full force to everything she does. In fact, that commitment to showing up authentically and at full volume plays a huge role in Wendy’s guiding philosophy for life.

    “When you believe in the power of your voice, you create endless opportunities to change your life, your work, and the world.”
Lisa Kaplin

Lead Trainer

  • At first glance, you’re sure to notice the unmistakable twinkle in the eye of Lead Trainer, Lisa Kaplin, which merely hints at the sassy, sardonic wit you’ll encounter in your conversations with her. As smart as she is sassy, Lisa is a psychologist who ran her own therapy practice for nine years prior to becoming an iPEC Certified Professional Coach in 2011, and most recently a lead trainer. She is also an ICF Professional Certified Coach.

    Although Lisa readily shares drawing inspiration from people who have managed to create beautiful lives despite the chaos, and adversity they have overcome, she wasn’t sure she loved the work of staying in the processing phase with her clients. Her desire to help others, led her to iPEC Coaching where she found a way to empower others, and provide support more in alignment with how she wanted to experience life.

    At an early age, Lisa says she discovered how to effectively read other people and to adapt to their moods. Flash forward to present day, she’s not looking to adapt to other’s moods. Lisa is passionate about women’s empowerment and sharing a strong feminist agenda.

    When asked about her life philosophy, Lisa doesn’t hesitate to respond, “It all comes down to choice. I ask myself, what can I control here, and how will I choose to look at this?” Then, in a way that is so uniquely her own, Lisa adds through uproarious laughter, “Bummer, wish I could just change people.”

    She coaches executives and successful professionals who feel stuck in their relationships or face communication challenges such as those with a boss, their spouse, or children. In her work to further her client’s development of self-leadership, she helps them to foster and maintain healthy personal and professional relationships through awareness, communication, and plenty of practice.

    Lisa Kaplin has been married for 28 years. She is the proud mother of three young adult children, and one very spoiled Goldendoodle.

    As an iPEC Lead Trainer, Daniel finds ongoing inspiration in personal growth. He remains a dedicated learner, continually discovering new insights as he reflects on and applies the transformative concepts from iPEC’s Coach Training Program to his life. 

    For Daniel, the most impactful aspect of the training was the realization of conscious choice. Empowered by the knowledge that he is always at choice, he has created the life he desires. His guiding life philosophy is simple yet profound: "Know thyself." By connecting with one's true being, he believes individuals can show up in life with power and beauty, contributing positively to humanity.

    When he’s not coaching, Daniel is still directing music teams in the uplifting atmosphere of church settings. His infectious laughter adds an extra layer of joy, creating a dynamic and spirited quality that he brings to his iPEC students in the classroom.
Daniel Macca

Lead Trainer

  • “Mine is an unconventional life,” Daniel declared. “From childhood on, I’ve always followed the beat of a different drum.”

    A self-professed non-conformist, Daniel harkens back to his earliest school day memories when he was that kid in class who was continually raising his hand, speaking up, and asking questions.

    “While my method was not the easiest, nor the most popular with the teachers, it was the path closest to my heart,” Daniel continued. “I was drawn to human development and psychology in high school, studying meditation and philosophy while using mental imagery to improve my athletic performance.”

    Often described by clients and students alike as incredibly present and fully accepting of others, Daniel strikes the perfect balance between masculine strength and the traits often associated with the feminine side of human nature—nurturing, kindness, and caring.

Known for her love of people and creating meaningful connections, Taline thrives on inspiration.With a background in business administration and interior architecture, Taline spent 25 years in corporate management and real estate residential development and sales. However, in 2018 she made a bold leap, walking away from the real estate business she had built over a decade to embrace the world of life coaching through iPEC. 

    Taline's focus is on helping people discover purpose, passion, and Truth within themselves, both personally and professionally. She finds inspiration in the transformative power that unfolds when individuals muster the courage to embark on inner work for change. As a coach, Taline partners with her clients on their unique journey, challenging their self-imposed limitations so they can step into their own light.

    For Taline, iPEC coach training has been a profound journey of growth from a cellular level.

The collaborative environment with diverse yet like-minded individuals, and the shared mission of raising the consciousness of the world, resonates deeply with her.

    Taline's initial entry into iPEC was motivated by a career change, but little did she know it would flip her world upside down! Before long, she found herself questioning the outdated beliefs that had been running the show and influencing her life decisions.

Now there are no more apologies—just living her authentic life, iPEC style!
