Hi, I’m Sara,

I’m a proud mom to 3 wonderful young men, a business owner, a mountain and ocean adventurer, an artist, and a former teacher. At my core, I am not much different than any of you. What and who I have become is a resilient woman and person, who survived and thrived from multiple traumas, now finding herself in this space. And this is exactly where I was meant to be.

Ten years ago, I was at the lowest point in my life. Suffering from relational and betrayal trauma and complex-PTSD, I was debilitated by the unknown as my marriage and life collapsed, living as a single mom. Emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically unraveling, I found myself at a precipice: I could lose my life through all of this, or find a new me. My resilient self chose the latter.

I made a point everyday of getting outside, navigating through anger, pain, and grief while hiking 14,000 ft mountains and paddling 4-miles out to sea with whales and dolphins. I somatically healed my heart, mind, and body through nature while practicing the art of making bold moves in my life. As a result, I began finding that new me. A version of me with a larger smile, a longer laugh, and a love for her present life. The gift of my trauma was finding my most important relationship: the one within myself.

My trauma became my purpose: to help others embrace their bold life. I became a keynote speaker, best-selling author, TEDx speaker, and a retreat organizer/facilitator for transformational experiences.

For 32-years, I’ve been diving into personal development, mental and emotional resilience, healing, and research. I have distilled 5-key components to boldly making moves when faced with constant change. We use these key components when guiding clients on life-altering journeys of hiking, kayaking, and coaching through the Grand Canyon, Alaska, and Colorado.

You could say I’m an “artistic visionary who creates through a lens of pushing the needle forward, regardless of naysayers or fear.”

Our world continues to go through crises and change, with no end in sight. I want this practice of overcoming and thriving to be available for everyone. For you. For your family. For your friends. For organizations. Your colleagues. Because, the stronger and more bold the parts, the stronger and more bold we are as a whole.

“… there are many sides to us; these red heels have been carried 1000-plus miles on backcountry trails with epic pics on the highest peaks to show”.

In 2013, I was questioned how a mom of three sons could reinvent her life at 40 years of age, guiding and coaching others through the Grand Canyon and Alaska.

Though seen as strong, I wasn’t always seen as feminine. Which stung.

I decided that I wanted a symbol to show the world that a woman does not have to be put in a box. We can do our nails and summit a peak on the same day. We can hike trails, climb boulders, and come home to put on a dress and heels. We need to embrace, love, and honor all sides of who we are.

It came to me while running. “I will buy a pair of red heels and wear them on the peak of Mt. Baldy for me.” I posted the picture on social media and the response was surreal. Through that one picture, a message was posted to the universe… Women can be strong and feminine.

My heels have seen peaks throughout Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, Mt. Wilson, Cucamonga Peak, Mt. Baldy, San Jacinto, San Bernardino Peak, San Gorgonio, the High Sierra Trail, the High Sierra Loop, the John Muir Trail, the Sierra High Route, Mt. Whitney, and many others.

Red represents courage, power, determination, passion, desire, and love. I will never stop embracing myself. Hopefully these red heels give you the courage to stand out and do the same.

The world needs more of Sara. To know Sara is to love Sara. And the more she can give her love to the community, the better the world’s gonna be. She always wears her heart on her sleeve, however, she’ll be the first to tell you like it is. And that’s what’s needed. Because we have to show up and we have to be honest and truthful and stand in our power. And then help others to do the same.

It’s not about how you start. It’s about how you finish.


There was a time when I refused to climb mountains in the winter season.

I was afraid of the snow and cold. I thought people who climbed in snow were far more brave than me, and that I’d be the person who would get lost in a white-out, or slide down a mountain and lose her life. 

Bottom line is, I didn’t have knowledge of precautionary measures, or the courage to put myself in these conditions. 

And then it happened. 

I put myself out there and learned how to do the hard. I leaned into courage, faced my fear, and summited a mountain in snow.

It was the most epic experience ever, and now, I crave days like this.


We either boldly face these seasons with the knowledge and courage to overcome, or we stay grounded at the bottom of our mountains. 

Which is it for you entering 2024?

Let us help you.

Stealing a great quote from my middle sons speech he delivered last evening at the NCAA water polo banquet. 

As we head into the last month of 2023, and visualize our 2024, a reminder:

“Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.”

How will you have new experiences unless you put yourself in places you’ve never been? I wasn’t expecting to paddle 7-miles last evening. But that epic sunset and incredible full moon kept me going. I didn’t want to leave, so I stayed out there. 

One thing I do is try my hardest to always keep my word. So when I FaceTimed a client from 3.5 miles offshore under full moonlight and my headlamp shining on me, she laughed.

As I told my dad, “One experience can lift you for an eternity.”

Make Bold Moves .. live like you’ve never lived before. 

Did you view that epic full moon last evening?👇

THE MAN. THE BOLD LEGEND. It was 120 degrees. I was hiking the Grand Canyon for the first time with my uncle. DEATHLY sick with a digestive bug, I swore I’d never return! And now? I lead retreats there. 

I owe so much to my 85 year old uncle. Today, we climbed together. And, as always, he beat me to the summit. 😂

Me? I got to the top, laid down, pulled out Halloween candy, and listened to his stories. He told me the names of the peaks. 

I smiled because if it weren’t for his patience and guidance, I’d have given up on myself that first time I climbed the canyon back in 2009. 

The thing is, we learn more from our hard moments than our happiest times. So lean in, learn from what you’re capable of, and enjoy this ride of life. 


>> Patience is key. You’ve never had this very moment, so embrace it. 
>> Lean into those that support you. 
>> Push yourself when it gets hard, because you can go further than you realize. 

And.. I still love Snickers over all else.
