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.
