Audrey Herrera-Castillo

Pre-Certified Transformational Coach, obtaining Professional Coaching Certification November 2019.


Audrey comes to the Equus team with a desire to learn, a thirst for authenticity and a love of teaching.

Culminating a career of nearly 30 in civil service at the end of 2018, during that time she found the vast majority of people want to do their jobs well. Unfortunately, often those same people have not been offered the skills for success from their employer. Audrey has developed a process to support those employees to find success beyond success. The process positively impacts the employer as well as the employee. Audrey enjoys working with people who have a desire to grow, improve and evolve in their personal and professional lives.

“I’m inspired by the human spirit. Often individuals just need a person to travel along with them to realize their confidence, harness their courage and move in safety to the next level, whatever that might be for them. I am blessed to be trusted by many to be that travel companion. I enjoy witnessing my clients growth and development while also experiencing personal growth and development alongside of them. Each experience helps me to be a better coach and serve my clients in a more authentic way.”

Dedicated leader, coach and mentor for nearly 30 years in civil service transitioned to innovative business owner with a focus on providing areas of improvement for individuals seeking to grow professionally and personally. Areas of expertise include leadership development, staff management, program management, tourism marketing, human resources, conflict resolution, contract administration and procurement and statewide customer service.

Founding Partner

“I am still changing from my time working with you almost a year and a half ago – the experience feels just as visceral as if it happened yesterday. My time with you and the horses at EQUUS was pivotal in reconnecting me to parts of myself I didn’t know (or had forgotten) existed. I will always be tremendously grateful I decided to invest in that experience.”
– Lisa D.

Kelly Wendorf is an executive and personal coach, published author, spiritual mentor, and socially responsible entrepreneur.

Her early experiences were vitally and deeply shaped by the natural and ancient world around her where she learned a way of listening to forces within people, nature and moments. This unconventional education grants her a gift of perception that liberates untapped potential and hidden gifts within individuals and organizations, helping them to solve problems differently through a wisdom-informed and wholeness approach.

Throughout her life she has lived and worked around the world, studying with many spiritual and Indigenous leaders in India, Africa, Indonesia and Australia. Such immersion in multi-cultural perspectives has honed a passion for creating a new narrative in the human condition, empowering high-performing individuals, organizations, and their leaders to wield meaningful change in their families, communities, and in the world through servant leadership and innovative business development. She has worked inside a spectrum of clientele – from Amazon, to Microsoft to some of the most underserved communities.’

Kelly founded, edited and published Kindred magazine (Australia), an evidence-based publication that explores the social, cultural and biological underpinnings of a compassionate society. Here she spent 15 years immersed in the field of neuroscience and neuropsychology and its relationship to social justice and transformative cultural change. Kelly also authored and Edited Stories of Belonging (Finch), an anthology from authors around the world, including the often excluded Indigenous voices. Her upcoming book, Flying Lead Change (Sounds True) will be released in December 2020.

As Founding Partner at EQUUS alongside her lifetime partner J. Scott Strachan, she specializes in the liberation of robust leadership capacities in those who are most qualified — the empathetic, the conscientious, the accountable, the generous, and the kind.

“What if all of the assumptions you had about yourself were not only challenged, but dispelled? What if they were replaced by new possibilities – and the courage and trust to live them? Our experiences can positively and permanently affect every aspect of your life. We use a 56-million-year-old system, the horse herd, to teach truly sustainable leadership practices.”

As a gifted educator and facilitator, Kelly developed Wisdom Circles®, a group peer-learning and coaching model. An intuitive lifelong horsewoman, she also developed The EQUUS Experience® — an award-winning equine-assisted transformational learning process. Wisdom Circles and The EQUUS Experience® are recognized as a powerful differentiators in organizational change circles.

Together, Kelly and Scott continue to develop and grow The EQUUS Experience, Wisdom Circles, and EQUUS’s other complimentary processes that curate various awareness-based frameworks that create breakthrough learning and discovery.
