Esther Bailey-Bass, founder and principal of EBB 'n Flow Lifestyle | Leadership Coaching & Consulting, is an experienced and accredited Life & Leadership Coach, Healer, Circle Facilitator, Trainer, and Inspirational Speaker. Before journeying onto the path of coaching, Circle process work and facilitation, Esther spent nearly 25 years in print and non-profit media as a sales, marketing and fundraising professional all while serving on numerous non-profit boards honing her leadership skills.

In 2012, Esther began her journey into coaching which immediately transformed her life and unveiled her true purpose to help others to (RE)member, (RE)connect, and (RE)claim their brilliance and to unapologetically lead from the inside/out. Esther believes that love is at the center of all leadership and uses love energy to inform her work.

After leaving an 18 year career in public media she founded EBB 'n Flow Lifestyle | Leadership Coaching & Consulting where she, as the EBB 'n Flow Coach, focuses on professional and executive women leaders, particularly Black women and women of color, who have been silenced and sidelined.

A natural born leader herself, and influencer she often challenged the status quo and found herself unsupported, pigeon-holed and marginalized as a leader. Her potential was stifled by those who had the authority and influence to mentor and sponsor her. It took her nearly 3 years before she gained clarity and understanding for the harm and trauma she experienced during her 18 year career.

Empowered with a new vision, greater sense of purpose, more knowledge and wisdom Esther is bringing this work to the forefront. She's focusing on the untold stories of women leaders who have silently suffered the trauma of being sidelined and to help them creatively express their stories, (RE)align with their values, heal their voices, determine their purpose and define their mission. Esther is a self-proclaimed champion for the underdog, overlooked and underserved natural born leaders, women of color, who are leaders by title but silenced and sidelined within their organizations.
