meet the founder

"it's our birthright to move through the world with a felt sense of hope and agency"

Cherie Dikelsky, ACC, ECPC is a success coach and trusted pathfinding partner to creators, transformers and thought leaders whose visions thrive on scope of mind.


As founder and principal coach at Hemispheres, Cherie's love of whole-brain science first took root in the field of human-centered innovation, but it was a decade-long journey through brain injury that truly cultivated her passion for brainsavvy. Today, her whole-brain framework helps clients transform uncertainties into creative, vital spaces where the mind and neuroplastic brain can join forces. In these spaces, clients discover the scope of their minds and expand their scope of discoverable pathways and resources.
