Share Your Story

Every person's life journey is unique, and the paths we take to arrive at a destination are as different as our upbringings and experiences. 


We would like to capture your one-of-a-kind stories to inspire our students and help them realize that all things in life are possible—even if a few stumbling blocks occasionally might get in the way to impede progress. 

Your stories will enrich our blog and build our video and podcast libraries with firsthand accounts of the inspirational moments, failures, and successes that make up our lives and careers. 

Let's chat about your story and how we can best share it with Thillen Education Foundation coaching students.
