2024: Five years of podcasting and social content created and always available - free podcast, free 30-Day Challenge & more!

When Christine Oakfield, aka Coach Christine, was tossed into the empty nest phase four years earlier than expected, she found she wasn't feeling ready for the next stage of life. Through her quest to improve her personal experience, she discovered a joy in encouraging others through the same transition. Now the lively host and producer of the Your Empty Nest Coach podcast and the creator of the 30-Day Challenge to Empty Nest Success, she helps parents to transition from freaking out about the empty nest years to feeling freaking awesome. 

Christine provides resources through her podcast, social media accounts, and 1:1 personalized coaching. Coaching with Christine focuses on becoming the C.E.O. (Conscious Effective Olympian™) of your life while including sprinkles of analogies, positivity, purpose, and a delightful sense of humor. >> Learn more about Christine.
