I Believe

Living into your calling is the most difficult and rewarding action to take. I'm blessed to be doing it. "The two most important days in your life are the day you were born in the day you find out why." Mark Twain

About Liz McGough-Olszewski

A coach, speaker, and non-profit founder, I specialize in helping women live into their calling after major life changes such as divorce or career change transitions.

I am also a subject matter expert and presenter on topics such as Children of Alcoholics/Addicts, Equine-Assisted Therapy, turning adversity into empowerment and connection.  My most requested presentation,  "Demystifying Connection," is a powerful and unique system to improve relationships and communication with colleagues, friends, and loved ones. 

My proudest achievement is founding Horses Healing Hearts (HHH) in 2009 (www.horseshealingheartsusa.org). I am also a certified EAGALA Equine Specialist (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association), and am finalizing my IPEC Coach certification.


Growing up in a turbulent alcoholic home, I was inspired to help children of addiction using my incredible passion for horses.  At the age of 24, my mother died of liver disease. During the last ten years of her life, it was the support of mentors and horses that gave me strength and inspiration to survive. Motivated to “pay it forward” and leave a legacy, I created HHH to help the children standing where I once stood.

A short film about Horses Healing Hearts, “Without Wings," shares stories of how children became young adults with hope and promise they learned from mentors and horses.  Given accolades as many kids' saving grace, HHH has helped over 6,500 individuals in the last 13 years. 

Without Wings, directed by Nyceflix Films/Richard Jackson, was nominated for Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale Film Festivals in 2021.  The movie also aired for over a year on PBS Health Channel with viewership of over 6,000,000.

In 2022, Valor Films released “Trauma to Triumph; One woman’s journey finding purpose in pain.” (www.fmsproductions.com) This is a 30 minute movie purchased by treatment centers and female prisons to teach resilience and new perspectives.  The movie detais how I overcame my battle with grief and depression.

The ACE's (Adverse Childhood Experience ) Youth Experience Summit (Asheville, NC)
