Grace McLaren holds a Master’s in Counseling and Personnel. She is the founder of Aim to Be Coaching, through which she coaches and advises individuals at all stages of life to help them from Point A to Point B. It is a calling rooted in the more than 30 years she spent coaching business executives and teams through her previous company Success Strategies, Inc.

Grace’s vision for expanding and replicating the ability for others to genuinely, appropriately and successfully support those facing darkness grew following her own son’s suicide in 2017. It is her son’s pain and her pain, along with her professional training and experience, that incubated the idea for First Responder Coaching (501(c)(3) pending).

Grace was born and raised in Memphis, TN. She has been married to James McLaren for over 20 years. Together, they share three children: one living in Memphis, one living in Atlanta and the other living in Heaven.
