My Story

Roberta A. Coker


After almost 20 years in the restaurant business, I decided it was time to make a change. Being the more impetuous type, I quit my job without a back-up plan and ended up being unemployed and miserable for almost a year when a friend suggested I have my hands analyzed to help me with my transitional decisions. I had never heard of Hand Analysis and said, “Sure, I’ll try anything at this point!”

Well, I was blown away by my first session and started working with my hand analyst on a weekly basis, in a combination of one-on-one and class type groups. After a short while she said, “You should be doing this for a living.” I told her she was crazy and kept looking for other avenues of success and fulfillment. Well, she kept pushing and I kept resisting until finally, after unsuccessfully trying to go back into the restaurant business because I needed to pay my bills and having every door basically slammed shut in my face, I agreed to get certified at the International Institute of Hand Analysis. As soon as I committed to joining the program, I got a call from an old boss of mine who offered me a part time management position that gave me flexible hours, so I could attend classes and gave me enough money to pay my expenses while I went to school. Again, as soon as I surrendered (which just happens to be part of my Life Lesson according to my fingerprints), the Universe rushed in to support me on my true path (my Life Purpose). So, I graduated from the Institute and upon graduation was asked to join the faculty of the Institute. I started my private practice and started teaching at the Institute and as they say, “The rest is history.” That was more than 15 years and 10,000 pairs of hands ago…and I’m more passionate today about what I do than I was then!
