Meet Chris Duffy-Wentzel 
Author. Speaker. Life Coach.


Specializing in mind-body-spirit, well-being journeys with an emphasis on surgery preparation coaching and personal development coaching.

My Story

As a result of a life altering medical diagnosis and self-healing journey, I changed my career and became an author and certified surgery coach assisting individuals navigate surgery using mind-body techniques. I also partner with individuals creating a unique path to wholeness as a personal coach in my private practice and mind-body-spirit retreats in the beautiful Sedona area.

After thirty years in a corporate environment, coaching and leading thousands of health professionals, it was time to integrate everything I’ve learned and offer myself to a new community ready to evolve to higher levels of conscious awareness, fulfillment, health and vitality.

My training, certifications and accreditations include:

  • Results Certified Coach from the Neuroleadership Institute
  • International Coaching Federation
  • Peggy Huddleston’s Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster™ Workshops

Working with Chris

It has been a life-long dream of mine to open a yoga studio. Being under thirty, and newly establishing myself financially, I didn’t have the confidence or the experience to know how to begin. Working with Chris in a coaching partnership changed my life, professionally and personally. I highly recommend her customized, compassionate and empowering approach.


From the moment I met Chris, I knew my career would be forever changed. It was immediately clear she understood me both as a professional and a person. She has a talent for adapting her coaching style uniquely to each person. As a result of our coaching partnership, I became a more confident, outspoken contributor and advanced my career. I am lucky to have worked with her and learned from her for as long as I did


I experienced peace and deep relaxation after my surgery coaching workshop with Chris. I have a new sense of empowerment and hope.


No one has had a bigger or more positive impact on my career than Chris Duffy-Wentzel. I have grown both personally and professionally. Chris has been instrumental in helping me to develop as a sales rep, as a leader amongst my peers, and as a respected consultant to leadership within my organization. I can say with 100% confidence that I would not be where I am today without Chris’s results focused coaching.

Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.
