An Independent Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker with The John Maxwell Team

About Wanda Ritchey

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.

My unquenchable desire to help others reach their full potential led me to join the John Maxwell Team. Prior to joining the team, I was fortunate to spend 8 years serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. As a career, I have enjoyed the past 23 years as an educator/literary coach in the Public School Systems of South Carolina and Georgia. This opportunity of working with high school students heightened my understanding of the need for training effective leaders globally. Additionally, since 1999 I have served as a licensed/ordained minister to churches in the U.S. and as a missionary to Jamaica and East Africa.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Education from South Carolina State University, a Master of Education Degree from Lesley University, as well as an Ed. Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln Memorial University. I am the founder of Creative Arts with Spice Education Services (CAWSES), where I serve as a professional storyteller and workshop facilitator to enhance/promote literacy and the oral tradition.

Though I’ve had many opportunities to serve in a leadership capacity, throughout my years of working in the educational arena as well as in ministry, I’ve learned that in order to be a successful leader it is imperative to invest in my own growth and development as a leader. During my graduate studies, I was introduced to the teachings of John C. Maxwell on leadership and his principles not only helped me to grow professionally but they have also given me the thrust to help others to realize their dreams. Thus, joining the John Maxwell Team serves as my vehicle/platform for personal development and training worldwide.
