My name is Ginger Painter.  I am the founder and Coach of Square 1 Coaching.  I have been married for almost 20 years to my amazing husband and business partner, together we have two active teenage boys and a yellow lab.  I have been in the sales, professional development, and leadership space for over 20 years.  In that time, I have learned so much about myself and where my passion lies.

it's nice to meet you

My Story

my story

I am a graduate from Oregon State University where I studied to be an elementary school teacher.  While I never stepped foot into a primary classroom, my sales journey ultimately led me to professional development and leadership, where I got to develop my craft in training classrooms and boardrooms.  I felt so passionate in those roles, I earned the highest level of education and graduated with my PhD in Organizational Development and Leadership in 2017.  At that time, I had been working as a remote employee for almost 10 years, therefore, I wrote my dissertation on how remote employees make sense of their work environment.  


As a certified coach through Coach U and a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).  I follow and demonstrate ethical guidelines to uphold the standards of coaching.  As the owner and founder of Square 1 Coaching I will serve individuals through one on one and group coaching. The purpose and vision is to help you find where you are stuck in your life and/or career, seek and awaken what fills you with joy, and inspire the next right steps toward action.


With all that is coming at us in this fast-paced world, having a coach that meets you where you are in your current situation is a must.  As your coach I will be your biggest cheerleader as you embark in your life and business goals.  I believe that your personal life spills so much into your business life that without coaching on both, there are important areas that will get missed. 


Are you ready?


Let’s get started with your unique Square 1 moment!
