Art of Velvet Steel


*The Art of Velvet Steel: the ability to balance power and grace, strength and gentleness*


Are you a high-achieving woman who has reached incredible milestones in your life, career, or business, yet still feels a nagging sense of unfulfillment? Do you find yourself chasing the next goal, hoping that this time, you'll finally feel happy, worthy, and validated – only to discover that those feelings remain just out of reach? And are you known as caring and loving but when the sh*t hits the fan, everyone looks to you?


Adversity can be a powerful teacher, and challenge is source of personal growth. You can have trauma in your history but it doesn't have to define you. And you are definitely not alone...


Clarity, confidence, peace, joy, love & abundance

If you're ready to stop the endless pursuit of external validation and start living a life of purpose, alignment, and true fulfillment, you're in the right place.


I'm Cindy Sammetinger, a transformative coach with a unique blend of experiences as an airman, leader, mother, and entrepreneur. I have a Master's degree in challenge, and a PhD in adversity. Growing up in a background of poverty and trauma, I learned early on that adversity can be a powerful teacher, and challenges are opportunities for growth. Trauma didn’t break me – it grew my desire to serve my country and give back to others. 


When all of my friends were joining sororities, I joined the military, leaving behind loved ones to chase a dream. Through my 8 years of service in the United States Air Force, I developed discipline, attention to detail, and the ability to remain calm and focused in the midst of chaos. 


After my time in the military, I attended one of the top Nursing Schools in the nation and I've been a member of the world's most trusted profession for almost two decades. I spent my nursing career in two highly specialized areas: Intensive Care Unit and Labor & Delivery. I know what it's like to see trauma in real time, and to remain calm and focused in the midst of chaos. I honed my skills in navigating high-pressure situations with compassion and precision. 


I became a Professor of Nursing, where I discovered my passion for mentoring and guiding others to reach their full potential.


Now, as a transformative coach, I combine my diverse experiences and expertise to help high-achieving women like you align your outer success with your inner purpose. I create a safe and nurturing space for you to explore your deepest desires, quiet the noise of external expectations, and cultivate unshakable confidence in your unique strengths.


Through a powerful blend of coaching, meditation, and somatic practices, I'll guide you to:


- Discover and connect with your authentic purpose

- Develop the resilience and adaptability to thrive in the face of challenges

- Cultivate a deep sense of self-trust and inner knowing

- Create a life that feels truly aligned, fulfilling, and joy-filled


Clients work with me to unlock the Art of Velvet Steel within them – that perfect balance of power and grace, strength and gentleness – to create a life that embraces your inner wisdom, and has you step into your full potential.
