Why I am serving on the Board: I am honored to be serving on the Board because ICF matters. Coaches best know how to help fellow coaches deliver excellent service to clients. In the almost two decades that I’ve been a coach, I’ve seen the ICF standards, credentialing, and ongoing education raise the bar in the entire coaching sector. Also, I love helping coaches connect with other coaches. We are better ourselves when we grow in relationship with each other.

Fun Fact:  I love brewing my own beer and am on my way to my second level of Cicerone certification, the “sommelier” equivalent for beer.

Why I am serving on the Board: I started the ICF South Carolina Chapter because I was keen on connecting with other South Carolina-based coaches to share best practices, resources, and success. I am passionate about serving our local communities, organizations, and our state through the profession of coaching. I envision ICF-SC as means to support  South Carolina coaches and businesses in communicating the benefits of professional coaching to their clients and organizations. My contributions to the board are my leadership, commitment, and drive to spread the word about Chapter activities, community events, and the overall benefits of being involved in with the ICF both locally and globally.

Fun Fact: I have a love for travel that has taken me to over 45 countries and still counting!

Why am I serving on the board?  I am on the board because I believe in supporting and contributing to the coaching profession.  Given that we have a significant impact on people and in our communities, I seek opportunities to support other coaches in their pursuit of fulfilling their dreams of becoming the consummate coach.  As the membership chair, it is invigorating to meet and interact with our membership to learn why they became a coach and how ICF-SC can assist in creating quality relationships that add value to our professional lives.  In addition, it is important to me to stay connected to other coaches to so that we can continue to have conversation about how we can advance the profession to have a significant impact in South Carolina.  Through our collective efforts, we have the power to transform our world!

Fun Fact: I recently took up the hobby of acting and was in a murder mystery.  I had a very small part and was on stage twice. My total time on stage was five minutes.  Each of the other characters had much more time on stage.  During intermission, the audience was asked who killed the main character and half the audience said it was me! My performance was so strong, that I was the talk of the community!

Dan Quinn, PCC

Director of Programs

Why I am serving on the Board: I joined the ICF Low Country Chapter upon inception and served as a passive member - meaning I attended events when convenient which was almost never. During Covid I joined a small group at Nixon's deli for lunch and was amazed at the talent, experience, and synergy I experienced from our impromptu group. That meetup progresses into an opportunity with the Charleston PD and then discussions throughout the state on how to utilize and maximize Coaching further. Although I stay busy with my full time work, I also enjoy serving in leadership and influential roles. I find myself more committed, engage and passionate when I belong to a cause and also serve from a leadership capacity. Also, I opted to serve as I was asked by a trusted friend. This will be a great year ahead and I look forward to some amazing events, fellowship and learning.

Fun Fact: I have had the opportunity to train & coach in every state & territory with the exception of Maine.

Why I'm serving on the Board:  I attended a training in another state, and they brought in the ICF chapter to talk about the benefits of membership and the good they were doing, not just for the coaching practitioners, but for the community in general.  I immediately found the SC Chapter and joined.  I watched and attended virtual sessions for a few months.  I was inspired by the work SC-ICF has done to help coaching practitioners across the state, as well as the commitment to the overall community,   I decided to be a part of the leadership team so that I can contribute to some of that goodness.  

Fun Fact:  I have a golden Microphone that I carry in my purse/bag.  You know, in case of emergencies.  

Dot Savage
Director of Partnerships and Sponsorships

Why I'm serving on the Board:  I've been a coach since 2005 and my fondest memories include mentoring other coaches.  As a board member, I look forward to supporting and growing other coaches, and developing new connections that foster awareness and growth of the coaching industry in South Carolina.  For me, coaching has been a gift that has fueled my professional and personal development, and I expect that to continue as a board member. I've lived in South Carolina for only a couple of months and serving on the board will provide the opportunity to get to know people, make friends, and learn about my new community as I begin to call it home.


Fun Fact: I'm a 12 year old in a middle aged woman's body.  As George Bernard Shaw said, "We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing."

Bri Plyler
Director of  Marketing and Communications

Why do you want to serve? Having a community of coaches to walk alongside is such a gift and The ICF has been an invaluable resource to me over the past 3 years as I grow my business. I chose to serve because it is important to me to give more than I take and what better way to give to this chapter than by helping spread the word of the resources available and connect other coaches who are working hard to serve their communities. 

Fun Fact: I am a rabid football fan (Clemson season ticket holder) and would spend ALL of my time outside if it was up to me.
