our team is built for brainsavvy success — and an integrative approach
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.
Cherie is a certified member of the International Coaching Federation (ACC) and an Erickson Certified Professional Coach (ECPC). Her background includes more than two decades of distinguished service in innovation thought leadership and transformation practice. She has served on advisory boards for award-winning frameworks and designed breakthrough transformation programs for national and global organizations, including the US Federal Reserve System, the American Medical Association, and the American Hospital Association.
Cherie is a member of the Mindsight Institute and the Global Association of Interpersonal Neurobiology Studies. She earned her undergraduate degree from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts (BFA) and in her spare time, sponsors arts & culture advocacy initiatives, including the Burton E Dikelsky Memorial Access to Arts Program at the Center for Performing Arts at Governors State University, for which she is the founding director.
