Hi! I’m Cheryl Hunter.

I help people change the direction of their lives through my work as a coach, speaker, and bestselling author. I also provide expert commentary on the subject for news sources such as Dr. Oz, CNN, and PBS.

But it certainly didn’t start out that way.

I began my journey as a small-town cowgirl with big-city dreams. As a teenager, I “escaped” from my family’s horse ranch in the mountains of rural Colorado for the bright lights of Europe, with nothing more than an over-packed suitcase and a dream.

Once I arrived, I was approached by two men who promised to make me a model. Instead, they abducted me, held me captive, and eventually left me for dead. I survived this life-changing trauma, refocused my life, and became a model anyway.

By the time I was 23, I’d lived in seven countries, been featured in every major magazine franchise, and was the worldwide Coca-Cola girl. As a response to captivity, I learned how to rise. In the process, I created an educational framework that empowers people to break free from whatever holds them captive.

My education has been profiled by PBS, Dr. Oz, CNN, NBC News, Fox, Forbes, Huffington Post, Fast Company, is highlighted in my four TED talks, and is taught worldwide by my team of coaches at The Hunter Group and me. My proprietary approach comes from first-hand experience, and I can tell you it works. I was my first case study, but I’ve also coached and led programs to a quarter million people over the past twenty years, helping those people learn to be successful, self-confident, and happy, no matter what comes their way.

“Cheryl Hunter has something very important to teach about reaching your fullest potential on this planet.”
