Bio

Keizan Shaffer started his career as a software professional in 1999, after graduating from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science. Since then, he's worked at a slew of companies of every shape and size, from under a dozen employees to over 100,000. In 2014, Keizan transitioned into management and soon found his love of coaching. Since then, he has been leading organizations professionally, from Fortune 500 companies to NGOs.

Since 2015, Keizan has also brought his love of coaching and mentorship to support others in recovery from addiction. In addition to sponsoring recovering alcoholics through the 12 steps, he has created and facilitated a support group for all forms of recovery within his Zen Buddhist community. In April of 2022, Keizan was ordained as a priest within the Rinzai lineage of Zen Buddhism. This event was just one of many gates to truth that Keizan has passed through on his journey.
