Patrick Peacock, Life Coach, Leadership Skills Professional

My Approach

I believe uplifting and empowering individuals to be aware of and live up to their full potential is the most meaningful way of approaching any area of concern someone may have. Looking at situations strategically and building on past and current successes lead to future success. 

Being born and raised in the Southside of Chicago, I learned the impact someone and situations can have on your future. I took that knowledge and successfully completed my degree at SIU Carbondale then enlisted in the US Army, where I retired from after 20 years of active service. I have had many successes that I did not know was going to be a part of my path, but it was with confidence, acceptance of support, and strategy that allowed me to achieve them. 

I founded and am the current President of The Peacock Foundation. A nonprofit geared towards uplifting and empowering communities by educating them regarding mental health needs. I am a proud member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, and a life member of the American Legion, Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. I look forward to assisting you in completing your goals in life.
