Lead Storyteller


Laura is a ball of energy. Don't blink - you might miss her. Always on the go. Always ready to lend a hand, a smile. She's a fighter through and through. Laura is more than what a bio could explain. Being in her presence is an honor. Laura's story is layered and unforgettable. She will hold you in her hand as she shares her path that has many edges, twists and turns. Laura's healing is still in progress. As she said to me, "If I wrote my bio today it would say: "Lost and trying to hold it together without even knowing what it is". I think that this is where Laura is going to meet our hearts.

The Hero

Black or white. Yes or no. Win or lose. There was very little room for gray in Jen's competitive, fast-paced world. Until, life threw her a series of pretty hellacious curveballs that changed the game entirely. This pause forced her to face loss, see the shades of gray, and let go of the things that no longer served her. She realized that being strong, “fine”, is a detrimental and lonely existence, and perfection and purpose rarely go hand-in-hand. Jen began finding answers in personal connections - at yoga, church and with people in the grocery store. Each new connection gifted a new perspective worth sharing, and that's why she's here.
