Coach Ellyn

At Coach Ellyn, I help busy, ambitious corporate professionals and entrepreneurs to achieve success without burnout. Being a high-achiever can feel fulfilling, validating, and productive. However, it’s also filled with people-pleasing, perfectionism, “should”-ing, and burnout. I get it. I’ve lived it. But we don’t have to be stuck in it anymore.

As a coach, I focus on helping busy, burned-out, high-achieving professionals—like you—free themselves from burnout and find their balance. Because burnout may happen…but staying burned out? That’s a choice and choosing differently requires 4 things: boundaries, self-care, awareness, and productivity.

Since 2018, I’ve helped clients from VISA, Amazon, JP Morgan, etc. and have spoken at professional organizations, corporations, and universities. In my work, I’m committed to providing no BS, non-cookie cutter burnout tips. And that’s what I’ll continue doing cuz I know we’re all over the eye-roll worthy stuff...

I offer speaking, coaching, online trainings, and both digital and physical planners and journals to support you in achieving more with less burnout.

About Ellyn Schinke

Burnout and I? We go way back. I spent 10 years in academic science and, during that time, I struggled hard with balancing my high-achiever tendencies + my personal fulfillment. If I’m being real, I was just checking boxes: a job right out of school, publications, a graduate degree, etc.

But I’d gotten so caught up in the credential chasing that I lost myself to the label of “scientist” and the lure of being Dr. Ellyn. Until I realized that, yes, I was burned out and, yes, that burnout had happened to me, but that I didn’t have to stay burned out. I could choose differently…

So, in August 2016, after a shit ton of personal growth, self-awareness, and mindfulness, I chose to leave my PhD, putting my well-being, fulfillment, + myself first for the first time since I was a teenager.

Now, I'm a former scientist and certified professional coach helping busy, burned-out corporate professionals and entrepreneurs find the freedom, fulfillment, calm, and balance that I have!

It’s amazing how things come to you exactly when you need them, and you were exactly what I needed. You helped me take these huge, lofty, seemingly unattainable goals and break them into mini tasks. ... I honestly didn’t know what to expect, or what I was truly hoping to gain, and it blew me away how valuable these 8 weeks were! I’m still reaping the benefits after we’re done, so worth the investment in yourself.

Ellyn is a student and teacher of human potential. I started her program with a motley rumpus of ideas, hopes, frustrations, and aspirations. By the end, I had a plan, a timeline, and a clear sense of purpose that excited me. She listened, asked good/hard questions, and collaborated with me to shape ephemeral ideas and wishes into tangible objects I can work and play with. I look forward to learning more from her in the future.

[Coaching] was well worth the investment in myself! She dove right into the deep end with me and helped guide me through a number of life decisions, realize and live by my core values and improve my self-compassion….Ellyn has a wealth of knowledge and is continuously learning new techniques …and does an incredible job of picking up patterns, pushing you to dig one level deeper while supporting you through the emotional tides…. [You] get out what you put in, but Ellyn will always show up for you

Nicole Hudson

Process Design Consultant & Business Coach
You have to put your own oxygen mask on before you can take care of others…’ a message that has stayed with me long after my 1.1 coaching sessions ended…. [I started off feeling] exhausted, emotional and at my wits end. As a people pleaser who thrived off validation, the word ‘no’ wasn’t part of my vocabulary. … It’s been a year since I wrapped up my coaching, and life is pretty good! Thank you Ellyn, I wouldn’t be where I am now without you!


Corporate professional
Working with Ellyn in her group coaching has been life changing. in the past, I wasn’t able to say no to people. Working with Ellyn and our group helped me to realize that I can do anything I put my mind to. But I also learned how to say no [and prioritize the] things that are going to work for me. ... I no longer have fear of failure. And I know that if I’m just my authentic self that I can take on the world! Her group coaching? It’s one of th best thins I ever chose to do!

Sara Delaronde

Entrepreneur & Chef
I’m so grateful for meeting Ellyn this year and doing coaching sessions with her. Not only is she very comfortable to talk to, but she also asks the hard-hitting questions to make you think. ... She also had amazing feedback on how to tackle some of the challenges I have been facing with determining the next steps in my career and what direction to head. I highly recommend working with her no matter what challenges you’re facing both professionally and personally!
