Business Coach. Experienced IT Professional. Survivor. Old Soul.
Pat Alva-Kraker (formerly Pat Alva-Green) has experienced many ups and downs during her life. Instead of giving up, she fought. She was her own catalyst for change and was determined to create the life she imagined – and deserved. It was then that Pat founded Majestic Coaching Group, helping new and experienced female entrepreneurs begin their Joyous Journey to Entrepreneurship as a business coach and mentor.
Pat leveraged her 35 years of experience in the IT industry – an industry that was male-dominated at the time – and began a new life as a mentor and business coach for female entrepreneurs. Her unique perspective on the importance of balancing the demands of business ownership and maintaining a healthy mind, body, and spirit truly makes her one of a kind. Pat’s methods as a business coach incorporate a holistic approach that can be seen in her coaching approach and self-care retreats.

About Pat Alva-Kraker
Pat Alva-Kraker’s story begins in 1996 in Denton, Texas, where she was working as a project manager at IBM. In addition to a busy work life that required traveling 80 percent of the time, she also helped her husband manage an exotic animal ranch and a bail bond company.
Although successful with IBM, Pat was unhappy working long hours and traveling so much. She felt that there was more to life and living. Although she was unfulfilled in her career and wanted more out of life, she was too afraid at the time to make the switch to being her own boss.
Life changed for Pat when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1996
Recognizing that life is too short to be so unhappy and that her life was literally on the line, it became very clear to her that she hadn’t been living to her fullest potential.
Determined to survive, Pat took on cancer, researching alternative healing methods and alternative therapies. Cancer served as a catalyst for her becoming a subject matter expert on alternative medicine; she even went on to earn certifications in Reiki and Polarity therapies.
Life again changed for Pat when she was laid off from IBM, after 22 years, in 2002.
Using this challenge as another catalyst for change, Pat found a new career that didn’t involve travel. She reclaimed her life and started to pursue what she really loved: helping people fulfill their dreams.
She earned a coaching certification and opened a part-time practice. She developed a skilled portfolio consisting of project management, life and business coaching, and alternative medicine.
Once more, life changed for Pat when her husband Don passed away in 2011.
In deep grief, she found herself back to working long weeks, managing the endless responsibilities of the ranch and her coaching practice. She was overwhelmed, burnt out, and could not see the light at the end of the tunnel.
It was soon evident that living this way would not be sustainable. Taking stock of her life, Pat was determined to reset, rewire, and reorganize her life; in the process, she fell in love again.
In 2016, she retired from Lockheed Martin and went into business full-time for herself as a business coach, retreat leader, author and trainer.
Pat now helps women establish and grow their businesses in a way that aligns with their values and goals. Pat helps clients get clarity on what matters most in their business while developing an action plan that supports their vision. Pat believes that success in life and business begins with self-mastery.
