Doreen’s ability to guide outstanding personal achievement never became more critical than in 2009 with a cancer recurrence staged as “incurable” with metastases to the bone. Aligning life-producing principles of body, mind, and spirit, Doreen experienced miraculous healing with no metastatic evidence of cancer. She fervently shares her cancer-conquering strategies to help others overcome challenges and roadblocks that inhibit well-being and success. She is the author of two books on faith and healing. Her last work, The Mind to Heal, was an immediate Amazon inspirational bestseller.

"Working with Doreen Lecheler of Vision Linked, I have embarked on a journey to find my purpose in life once again. She had some great tools that we used like the Life Styles Circumplex and the Spiritual Gifts Assessment. She used her skills and knowledge to draw out of me what really makes me happy."
"Doreen brought her high level of positive energy, introspective thought and dynamic teaching into our leadership retreat. She was exactly what the leaders of our large organization (31,000+ members) of forward thinkers needed. She made us all really examine the way we think, attack issues and move forward not just in business but in our daily lives. Her methods were easy to follow and provided us with daily tools that we could incorporate in our lives to make us better people as well as sharpen our business acumen. The 30 day follow up video program helped drive home the concepts, and I was inundated with positive feedback and thanks for having Doreen share her program with us. I feel that our leadership team and I are better for having participated in her program."
"Doreen is awesome. I have hired her and recommended her to several peers. Her last program at our leadership conference was very impactful. Most speakers come in, drop their knowledge on the attendees and, if you are lucky, leave the group feeling good about themselves. By the next day, they have forgotten most of what was learned the day before. With Doreen, her 30 day video follow-up was a difference maker. I was skeptical at first that attendees would not follow-up and watch the videos, but I was wrong….Doreen was with us for three hours and then followed up every day for 30 days. It is amazing how much greater impact that has."
