About Claudia Cantrell

I grew up in North Carolina and accepted Christ at age nine. After graduating from Duke University, I practiced as a Physician Assistant for over 30 years in the medical areas of emergency/trauma, cardiology, electrophysiology, and orthopedic surgery.  In addition, I worked in the medical device industry for a Fortune 500 company where I held a leadership role in both the United States and Europe.

After working for more than 30 years in the medical field, I experienced increasing discontent and believed God had to have more for me. I struggled with crucial questions such as “What’s my purpose?”, “What matters?”, “What’s missing?” and many more. These questions led me to the Halftime Institute where I realized my unique identity in Christ, my deepest passion, and my purpose. Subsequently, I trained at the Professional Christian Coaching Institute and founded Cantrell Christian Coaching.

In addition to coaching, I am a Christian conference speaker with The Robinson Agency. I authored the book, Sacred Love; A Journey of Singleness, Belonging, and Finding True Love, in which I am both transparent and raw about my mistakes, doubts, fears, and shame as well as sharing with readers the sudden and traumatic event that led me to my personal crisis of faith.

My career experiences both inside and outside the corporate world allow me to have a rich and varied perspective when coaching clients. I enjoy coaching clients one-on-one and in group settings. My personal mission statement is “to help others know the one true God, grow in their intimacy with Christ, and discover their unique design so that they can live out their God-given passion and purpose to expand the Kingdom of God.”

Today, I am a Spiritual Formation Coach, Certified Professional Leadership Coach, a Halftime Certified™ Coach, a Strengths Champion Certified Coach, a Certified Coach Presenter for Promised Land Living, and a Certified DISC Trainer and Facilitator. In addition, I have my ACC credential from the International Coach Federation.

My husband and I live in the suburbs of Atlanta with our two King Charles Cavaliers. I enjoy traveling, snorkeling, walking, baking, and interior design.


Colossians 4:17: “Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord that you may fulfill it.” NASB

I don't ask You (God) to bless what I have decided to do, but give me the grace to discover and to live what you have dreamed for me.
