Black Business Spotlight: Cohens Consulting Services

by | Aug 24, 2022 | News

Lifting people up and bringing positivity to people is something that comes naturally to Katrina Cohens. So, a little over a year ago, she decided to take that superpower and turn it into a business. Cohens became a Master Life/Leadership Coach and launched Cohens Consulting Services, LLC.  

Cohens is a Florida girl at heart, but now calls Macon her home after moving here from Gainesville in 2018. Her full-time job as a Regional Experience Manager for a bank brought her here. She still works that job, while also running her own business to improve the lives of others.  

“I want to make a positive impact on the lives of my clients by providing the skills, support, and motivation to unleash their fullest potential,” said Cohens. “I teach the art of focusing on positive thoughts and mindsets.”

Cohens has a Masters of Business Administration Degree and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Administration. She also has certificates in strategic management, nonprofit management, human resource management, and diversity-equity and inclusion in the workplace. She also has 20 years of leadership experience, the skills, and patience needed to coach, and a sincere heart for supporting clients. The road to her business has not always been easy, but it has been rewarding. 

“It’s important to be patient and be resilient,” said Cohens. “It’s also important to collaborate and support, but also need the support and request it.”

 When Cohens isn’t working her full-time job and running her consulting business, she’s in the community getting involved with events like the Women’s Empowerment Luncheon, Business Mixers, nonprofit agencies, and Leadership workshops focusing on challenges, confidence, and communication. She currently serves on the Volunteer Committee for Joshua’s Wish. She’s also a member of the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce.
