Meet our Graduates and Storytellers

Gisèle McDiarmid

Gisèle McDiarmid


Gisèle was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity) six years ago. While working hard to improve her life with chronic illnesses, she learned from IFCI's Certified Fibromyalgia Advisor℠ program the many available treatment options, why her body felt the way it did, and what would help. She graduated as a Certified Fibromyalgia Advisor in August 2020.

Gisèle is now graduating as a Certified Fibromyalgia Coach℠ after spending a year in training. She now feels better than ever and has been helping others do the same. A former R.N., and soon to also be certified in Holistic Nutrition, Gisèle is passionate about helping others like herself take control of their symptoms and live the life they've been longing for.

Angela Frescholtz


Angela earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting in 2019 while working full-time. She was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2003 and was able to manage it relatively well until adding some additional chronic illnesses in 2020.

After really struggling for the last couple of years, she decided to take the IFCI's Certified Fibromyalgia Advisor℠ training program to get a handle on her symptoms. She is currently on short-term leave from her employer and hopes to be able to return to her job by implementing what she has learned in this course.

Angela lives in Arizona with her daughter and her adorable dog, Riley.

Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter

South Dakota

Ann Coulter is a single mom from South Dakota. In 2003 she was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Three years ago she lost her job due to her health; her daughter started showing similar symptoms a year earlier.

Before starting the Certified Fibromyalgia Advisor℠ Training Program, Ann wondered if anything could help her. Over the last few months, the Advisor class has empowered her to find help for herself and her daughter.

After graduation, Ann will begin her training to become a Certified Fibromyalgia Coach℠. She can't wait to help other moms get the help they need!

Anne L. Beaulieu


Anne is a passionate, joyful, and encouraging woman. Respect, trust, and authenticity are some of her fundamental values. Having herself suffered more than 45 years with fibromyalgia, she understands all too well the day-to-day life with chronic pain.

She is a certified AIP Coach, IIN and CNE. Her mission is to be a bearer of hope for women who want to regain their vitality as opposed to accepting mere survival through illness. Health and vitality are now an integral part of Anne’s life, as well as those of her clients!
