Coaches & Speakers

New Money Story® Creating Your New Prosperity!

Producing the LEAP to Prosperity Virtual Summit for Women has awakened my passion for developing a thriving culture of women that are inspired & motivated to take their lives to the next level. I believe women are at the tipping point of bringing peace & prosperity to this turbulent world.  

My definition for prosperity is embracing a healthy, meaningful & thriving life.   

I started my journey to advocate for & empower women in the late 90’s when I produced a STARR Course for at-risk teen girls. I developed & co-facilitated life & leadership courses for women & in 2008 I acquired my professional coaching certification. I’ve since been certified in many other coaching disciplines.    

In 2015, I co-authored and published an Amazon bestselling self-help book for women, RE-The Wisdom in Rethinking Your Life! The book is filled with short stories from women who participated in our leadership course to overcome their childhood challenges & become prosperity-driven women. Many of these same women are contributing their time & passion to the success of this Summit. This is all for you! 

An Interview with Brooke James, The Grief Coach 

Brooke shares on her platform & in her podcasts that, most people don’t learn about death...until they have to! Brooke's father was diagnosed with cancer & six months later he was in hospice.  

Brooke is an independent advisor, coach & podcaster based in New York City. She founded her own consulting agency & just under a year into this new endeavor, she enrolled in the executive coaching program at New York University to better serve her clients. 

Amazon Care featured The Grief Coach as an expert in what to say to someone who is grieving. 

Brooke is also highly involved in fundraising for the advancement of cancer research & treatment for rare cancer at Memorial Sloan Kettering. After losing her father, she could not find any resources that met her needs, as a millennial, thus The Grief Coach was borne.  

She has a successful podcast with a mission to expose the listener to different grief experiences, designed for us all to learn to be more empathetic towards each other around death & dying.

Authentic Inaction™
Undoing the Doing in a Do Crazy World

Renee describes herself as a recovering workaholic & ‘doing’ addict who left her executive-level leadership role in biotech to give herself a genuine shot at doing work that mattered most to her heart. What drives her today is the opportunity to equip women from all walks of life to thrive, living with more purpose, joy & grace.

Today, she’s an international thought leader, playing at the intersection of business & psychology. She is on a mission of revolutionizing the way we work, play & relate to one another. In 2019 she took her story to the TEDX Stage. Her talk called Authentic Inaction™ Undoing the Doing in A Do Crazy World has recently reached 500K views. It is here that Renée began a journey to demystify our culture's obsession with busyness & ‘doing’.  

She’s published articles on coaching & leadership which have been featured in publications such as Fortune, Financial Times & Elephant Journal. Renee is co-authoring a book called The Art & Truth of Transformation for Women which will be released this October.  

Her workshop will open the eyes & hearts of women who do too much, to discover that who they are is not just measured by what they ‘do’ or achieve. 

The Heal Yourself House Call:
Discover the Root of True Healing From the Inside-Out

After complete burnout following her training, Dr. Kyia considered retiring from medicine. She was losing faith in just treating “symptoms” & never seeing true lasting change in her patients, so she began exploring other innovative healing methods. She became committed to integrating the physical, mental, emotional & spiritual components of health.

Dr. Kyia was determined to find tools for herself and her patients that would heal pain and disease rather than put a band-aid on them. She clearly recognized the gaps within the traditional medicine modality & began exploring ways to treat the ‘whole’ woman, taking into consideration the emotional & spiritual aspects of physical health. 

Dr. Kyia’s mission is to support and encourage women in discovering who they truly are, mind/body/spirit. As women heal all aspects of themselves, to reclaim their wholeness, their bodies & lives will begin to come into balance with an overall feeling of health & well-being.  

My Extraordinary Transformation from a Career in Engineering to Integral Coach 

After a long successful career in engineering, resulting in her emotional, physical & mental burnout, Kara’s recovery was sparked when she began belly-dancing. Through dancing, she rediscovered her body after years of living in her head. 

What Kara learned on her journey is one of the best kept secrets. Our brain’s primary function is to keep us safe often holding us back us from taking risk & experiencing adventure.      

As an Integral Coach, she brings principles & practices from both ancient & modern wisdom into her work & provides a framework to support women in developing & embracing their wholeness.   

Her workshop developed exclusively for this Summit will inspire the participants to begin their own journey to integrate their minds, hearts & bodies through self-compassion & nurturance.   

Break Your Silence to Find Your Authentic Voice

We’re honored to host Maureen’s workshop for women to reclaim their authentic voice & reconnect with their personal power.

With her love of learning & a degree in human services, certificates in coaching, counseling women, adult education & stress mastery, she is uniquely equipped to assist women who live with the challenge of feeling silenced to find & use their authentic voice again.   

Although she’s in high demand as a coach for organizations in Northern Canada, Maureen is most inspired & energized working with groups of women who long to create trusting support networks & find their courage to speak their truth, powerfully & inclusively.

Food Freedom
The Anti-Diet Approach

Bobbi spent half her life fighting her weight, which set the stage for her mission. Today, her clients are professional women who have tried every diet in 'the book' & view exercise as punishment.

Her 360-degree approach looks beyond exercise & diet, considering critical things like emotional state, environment & the story we tell ourselves around body & health, that may be the most significant factor in whether we’re making progress or not.

Bobbi's concept involves getting to a place internally that makes healthy food choices & quality movement second nature & no longer a burden, but a way of life. 

Bobbi’s certifications from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition & the Institute for Eating Psychology, along with training in Reiki & Qi Gong are all integral parts of her unique approach.

We are grateful to have Bobbi as a presenter & a host. She’s an inspiration & always leads with compassion & understanding, encouraging others to live a healthy, meaningful & abundant life.

Is Your Energy Zapped?
Discover the Top 10 Energy Zappers + Simple Solutions to a More Vibrant Life Today! 

After her third miscarriage & feeling ‘energy zapped’, Shawna knew she had to change her image of wellness. As a physical therapist, she understood how to help her patients set health goals & reach them, but she could see she herself was traveling down the ‘normal’ road to dis-ease. 

Finding herself at the end of the road, she decided feeling just ‘normal’ was highly overrated, she rejected Western Medicine & began to take a more holistic path—one that led her to experiencing spiritual, emotional & physical well-being.   

Today, Shawna as a Certified Life Coach & Holistic Health & Wellness Educator is on a mission to turn every woman’s idea of ‘normal’ on its head. She will guide them to living an exceptional life.

Mirroring Metaphors in Coaching™
Celebrating our Creativity

In her early twenties, Janet survived a near-death experience that blinded her for several days. As the light slowly returned, she saw new colors, shapes & forms. With the return of her vision, she saw her life through a new lens, a new perspective. 

Her inspiration for “Mirroring Metaphors” came from her this experience & living & working with Native American tribes. She became fascinated with weaving & the process of symbolism the Southwest tribes incorporated into their cultural art. Their visions for the design came from within as spontaneous expressions of their reality. 

Janet has a Doctoral Degree in Human Development, a Master’s Degree in Organizational Systems & Counseling & she’s a Certified Life Coach & Yoga Therapist.

In her workshop on Day 5, Janet offers a wealth of experience & training as each of you weave your own unique tapestry.
