Pat Barone has defied all the odds life stacked against her and lived to tell her tale. After radically changing the direction of her life and losing almost 100 pounds, friends and coworkers began asking for her help. She established Catalyst Coaching® in 2001 after receiving her coach training from one of the largest and most respected coach training programs, The Coaches Training Institute (CTI).


Although she is a recognized expert in the topic of permanent weight loss, she has defied a trend to niche herself and coached hundreds of clients on four continents as they radically changed their lives. Clients have partnered with her for reinvention, health/fitness, business success, creative endeavors, finding purpose and expanding leadership. She helps her clients confront limiting beliefs, know their values, learn new levels of self-care, and find fulfillment. She has over 10,000 hours of coaching experience, has mentored coaches establishing their businesses and seeking certification.

As a highly sensitive person (HSP or empath), and an indigenous woman, she has special insight into diversity, inclusion and wholeness. Her spiritually connected approach incorporates her experience as a yoga, meditation and breathwork instructor.


Pat believes every success starts with self-leadership - taking charge of personal psychology and shaking it up until it lines up with chosen goals. Her own very rare success story: maintaining her 100-lb weight loss since the year 2000 and radically altering her health and outlook is something only .005% of people who lose weight achieve.

She is a natural cheerleader for coaching and entrepreneurship. She was one of the pioneer coaches in Wisconsin, introducing the process to many companies and leaders, and was NBC15’s on-air life coach for many years. She has been featured in articles in the Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, Shape, HealthZette Magazine, Huffington Post, Women’s Health and Health Magazine.
