Thank you for visiting Active Happiness. I created this site in the hope of helping us all to create greater happiness, both in our lives and in the world.
My name is Lynda Wallace, and I’m a Positive Psychology coach and consultant working with local clients from my office in Montclair, NJ, and with clients from around the world over the phone and internet. Positive Psychology is a research-based branch of psychology that studies the causes of human thriving and seeks to develop effective, proven ways to enhance the well-being of individuals, families, organizations, and communities.
I hold an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, completed my certification in Advanced Positive Psychology Coaching with Dr. Robert Biswas Diener, and continue to study the science and application of Positive Psychology with Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar. I’m a member of the International Positive Psychology Association and the International Coach Federation.
Before I followed my passion into the field of Positive Psychology, I was a long-time executive with Johnson & Johnson, where I was responsible for a $1B portfolio of global brands including Band-Aids, Neosporin, and Purell. I’m also a founder of the Abangoh Children’s Project, a not-for-profit foundation that supports the care of orphaned children in Cameroon, Africa.
I live in Montclair, NJ with my delightful daughter Evie and our dog Gingersnap. I adopted Evie from China when she was a baby, and no matter what else I ever do in my life, that will always remain the best decision I ever made.
