My Story

Coaches, healers + women with soul,

My name is Katie DePaola, and I’m the CEO of Inner Glow Circle, a divine global sisterhood featuring a dynamic coach training program.

I have the best job ever. Every day, I get to teach women across the world how to scale their soul’s purpose and tap into their inner goddess through spirituality, sales and self-love.

My team of Certified Glow Coaches and I train women—from DC to Italy, Australia, the Bahamas and beyond!—to create possibilities they once only dreamed of.

Sounds like total magic, right?

It is. But wait a second, sister! We also do a lot of work. Not the type of work you’re grinding out from 9 to 5, but the inner work of focusing in on your true desires, quieting the outer noise and making soul-felt decisions to create a life full of wealth and wonder.

Working with a coach—and particularly a sassy, spiritual, tell-it-like-it-is coach like yours truly—is like bootcamp for your body, mind and soul.

How did I get here?

I’ll be honest. It’s been quite a ride.

I grew up surrounded by a family of entrepreneurs and started my first venture, Whole Glow organic spray tanning, in 2012.

I taught my first group coaching course on The Artist’s Way later that year and built my private practice while I was training with Accomplishment Coaching in 2013. After graduation, I started a little YouTube show called The Coach Couch with my dear friend Desiree, launched Goddess Circle (now in 7 cities!) in June 2014 and then founded Inner Glow Circle 9 months later.

I made money, lost money and invested in myself, others and my business. I broke hearts and got my heart broken {many times}, the worst of which was when my little brother passed away unexpectedly last year. I learned to be raw, real and generous as hell—especially with those I love the most. I taught myself how to set boundaries, create a schedule that works and really BE WITH my grief.

Like many of you, I lost my faith in the Universe…

And then I found it again.

But not on my own. I’ve had many wonderful teachers and trainers, including Elayne Kalila Doughty, Kris Carr, Mastin Kipp, Gabrielle Bernstein and Nisha Moodley. I’ve done masterminds, hired mentors and read stacks of inspirational books.


Coaching—like all aspects of life—is a wild journey.

It will rattle you.

It will open you.

It will expand your entire world.

Do you want to be abundantly YOU in every way?

I’d love to have a 30-minute consultation to talk about how you can scale your soul and tap into your inner goddess once and for all. Email me to book your free call with me or one of our Certified Glow Coaches.

Want to know more?!

  • As I child, I often felt like I didn’t belong. I wanted to understand my purpose in this world and living that purpose was very important to me. I was caught in one existential crisis after another!
  • I currently live in Washington, DC and have lived in Nashville, London, Sydney and New York City.
  • I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs. We didn’t talk about art, politics or the news. We talked about business. All. The. Time. I am grateful for this early introduction to the ups, downs and all arounds of entrepreneurial life!
  • I graduated from Vanderbilt University with a major in Human and Organizational Development and a minor in Women + Gender Studies. When I was brought to tears by the reality of women’s sexual abuse still happening in our world, my professor advised me to look at women’s issues intellectually instead of personally to get the elevation I needed to make a difference. That’s been important advice.
  • I worked in public relations, fashion, consulting, sales and marketing to find my “calling.” I was finally guided to start my own business. I feel most FREE when I’m running my own gig.
  • I’m a recovering workaholic. Over-working sometimes keeps me from experiencing not-so-fun feelings like loneliness or overwhelm. I’m practicing being with the discomfort of not working so I can more fully enjoy PLEASURE + PLAY.
  • I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in January 2014, after 8 years of misdiagnosis. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that no one knows YOU (and your body!) better than you. Always tune in. Always trust yourself. And when you feel in your heart that something isn’t right, pay attention to that call and keep searching. You will find an answer.
  • My biggest heartbreak was in May 2015 when my baby brother passed away. He was 20. Five months later, my fiancé left. I learned more about loss in one year than my entire life, and I can actually say I’m grateful.
  • Coaching has completely changed my life and opened me to a world of possibility I knew existed, but didn’t know how to access. My relationships with my parents are completely different (they’ve also become trained coaches), I’ve been able to grieve gracefully + my life is more fulfilling and complete than ever before. I’ve also manifested lots of love, the most adoring sisterhood and thrilling creative projects. Join our FREE, private Goddess Circle community to connect with other powerful women now!
  • Of course, your vision board alone won’t make your DREAMS come true. You have to do the work. And a lot of work went into creating my closest relationships and biggest wins in work + love. But I do believe in the power of visioning, because….
  • It just works. Visioning allows you to see yourself succeeding and stay motivated to put in the work on a consistent basis. And whether I choose meditation, yoga, forgiveness or exercise as a way to stay moving on my journey, I’ve learned the work works!
  • Every year, my colleagues and I give to causes like End Sex Trafficking, Step Up Women’s Network and Bo’s Effort {my brother’s foundation, launched in 2015}, because giving back shows the Universe our gratitude.
  • My strongest Goddess Archetype is The Initiator. I love guiding women into accessing their full power and dropping the fear once and for all.
  • My How to Fascinate archetype is The Trendsetter {a trailblazer who guides others through uncharted territories}!
  • I love giving presents. I love getting them too. My #1 Love Language is Acts of Service, followed by Receiving Gifts and Words of Affirmation. 💋‍
  • I’m committed to having it all. The trips, the romance, the children, the business, the books, the spiritual experiences. Freedom. Joy. Sisterhood. Everything.
