Hello, I’m Christy Mayfield

I am a Certified Physician Assistant, Transformational Coach, and Author.

I am the contributing author of the #1 Bestseller book “The Female Entrepreneurs Playbook: How to Create a Business You Love and Get Paid for It“, and author of the #1 Bestseller “Marry Me” Doesn’t Mean “I Love You”, as well as author of a third book “Finding My Rhythm Again”.

I am passionate about being a coach and helping people. Because of that, I have always strived to offer the best. In fact, as I grew my business I was setting and reaching goal after goal..

Then, suddenly, in the Summer of 2021, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer (no family history, no breast cancer genes… just a type A personality who burned the candle at both ends for years).

As I was taking care of everybody else, I had stopped taking care of myself. Sound familiar? I had stopped listening to my body, I had stopped deciphering my emotions, and I had stopped living a balanced life. I let stress drive me because I had achieved results and that’s what began to feel “normal”.

In addition to being a professional coach, for nearly 30 years I held a prestigious, lucrative medical career, yet I was burned out working 60-70 hours a week, exhausted, missing out on life with family and friends and my own physical health took a serious hit.

I knew in my heart that living a successful life is about so much more than the success I had achieved in my career.


It is a sacred place to be… traveling in another’s journey as they navigate their way through the ups and downs of life and all the emotions that we experience along the way.

I know because I have spent decades as a Physician Assistant seeing the illnesses chronic stress can cause and navigating the healing journey with my patients.

I have spent nearly another decade as a coach, helping my clients navigate the thoughts and emotions that are driving their choices and the results they are creating in their lives.

And now, most recently I have experienced what chronic stress can cause in my own life, as I grew my business… I think you and I are very similar… thinking it won’t happen to you because you feel fine, you can handle it, you may even feel an emotional rush to power through because your business is your passion… but the detrimental effects of a driven, highly successful women doesn’t discriminate.

It’s actually women like you and me who experience the highest rates of stress related illness and disease. I bet you have sacrificed so much to build your business.  Am I right?  When you think about it, that contradicts the whole purpose of why you went into business for yourself in the first place… for the lifestyle. For the ability to live a balanced, cohesive life.

So many of my clients are highly successful in their business, yet still feeling overwhelmed and disconnected from themselves and others.  They miss the intimacy that is lacking in their relationships and the time they wish they had for their children and friends. Often, they have experienced fatigue and ultimately illness…  Just like I did before I utilized the coaching techniques I have developed and now use with my clients.

Can I tell you a little more about my story… ? I started my cancer journey feeling adamant, that I didn’t want this diagnosis to define me.  I thought I would just leave it behind and never look over my shoulder (nothing was going to slow me down!).

I soon realized, however, that our life journeys become blended into our very existence… It takes who you were, who you have become and who you will be and it is now a common thread that is woven through every part of your life.  Your experiences… big and small…  become a part of you and change your DNA. But guess what?


You are not at the mercy of your circumstances and regardless of your past or current experiences you are not destined to stay in that space.

That’s when I pulled together all my knowledge, training and experience from my medical and coaching practices and created a scientifically proven system, based on neuroscience, so you can up level your life in a peaceful, cohesive way that not only balances, but enhances your relationships and your physical and mental health while you continue to scale your business.

Through my 1:1 VIP coaching, I’ll guide you through the inner work and discover the skills and techniques to simultaneously thrive in your business, your relationships and your health, as well as the relationship you have with yourself, so you can continue to elevate your success in all areas of your life.

Can I let you in on something? It’s not the circumstances or experiences that are causing you stress. It’s how you interpret your experiences through your thoughts, and ultimately your emotions, that determine the course of your health, your relationships and your life.

I used these tools and techniques daily and transformed one of my biggest life challenges into a journey of relative ease, both physically and emotionally. I healed from multiple surgeries quickly and without complication, and skated through chemotherapy without a hint of nausea or pain. The emotional transformation that has occurred within me has lasted because the techniques are rooted in neuroscience and create new neural pathways in your brain.

Rather than anxiety and fear, I am filled with more peace. Rather than overwhelm, my coaching techniques have provided me with more clarity for my business, my relationships and my life than ever before. My health is better than ever and I am now cancer free!

When your business is depleting the other important areas of your life, you’re not living your dream lifestyle, no matter how successful your businesses has become.

As I guide and support you, you’ll discover how to make the right choices, as they arise, for your life and business so you can stop wasting years heading down the wrong path in your business and your relationships.

Are you only living 1/3 of your life from the success your business has created and sacrificing the other 2/3… your health and your relationships?

What if you could create a successful business while simultaneously deepening the intimacy in your personal relationships & enhancing your emotional and physical health, so you can live and love a full life, instead of remaining stuck in 1/3 the life your successful business has created… You can!

A successful life is about so much more than the success you have achieved in your career. It’s about the relationships that make life worth living and your mental and physical health so you can enjoy what you have created with those you love.

Stop living only 1/3 of your life, behind your business.

You are worth so much more

When you use my techniques, that are rooted in science and your brain’s ability to create lasting change by creating new neural pathways in your brain to make it happen, you will sustain these changes for a lifetime.

You will respond to challenges more easily and find solutions more efficiently so you can live your purpose with brilliant success, while at the same time, experiencing more intimacy in your relationships, and improved emotional and physical health. You don’t have to sacrifice one for the other.

I have been recognized by the National Association of Professional Women for my skills as a successful life coach, and for my ability to guide men and women through some of the most challenging transformations of their lives. This is only the tip of the iceberg. I have so much more to share with you!

You weren’t meant to walk the path alone. I am honored and humbled that you are here and have allowed me to walk your path with you.
