Hi, I'm Ryan! I am the Founder of Focused Pathways, as well as the Chaplain, and Certified Master Mindset Coach.

My desire to contribute to the health and wellbeing of others began after I exited the service (US Army) as a young infantryman back in 2009. Over the years, I saw many of my fellow combat veterans see success as well as struggle—and I wanted to help.

I became a healthcare specialist (commonly known as a combat medic), and later was licensed as a practical nurse. I enjoyed being able to see the health and wellbeing of others improve before my eyes, but wanted to do more spiritually.

One of the things that really contributed to my personal resilience in the infantry, and continues to contribute to it today, is my personal faith. I pursued an undergraduate degree in religious studies, and later a Master of Divinity degree from a seminary, in order to be able to professionally encourage others who were interested. I served as a clergyman for several years, learning and improving my spiritual counseling skills (typically nouthetic or solution focused brief therapy). Today, I offer spiritual support from a non-denominational faith tradition.


Today, I am a Life Coach and the Chaplain at Focused Pathways™ Life Coaching to advocate for the holistic health and wellbeing of others.

I appreciate you taking the time to stop by, and I hope you will check out one of my services listed.
