My career began as a budtender for the first medical marijuana dispensary in Boulder County in 2009 – a time with very little regulation; we operated as a caregiver collective and had a general retail store business license. Within 18 months of Colorado’s first marijuana business regulation, we grew from one location to six and I learned the true meaning of balance while managing four retail locations and completing a Bachelor’s degree in Climate Science at CU Boulder.

For all the bright colors and abstract shapes that define my paintings, I must confess that I am a bit of a traditionalist at heart: family is incredibly important to me. My children and grandchildren provide great joy and inspiration, and it is my hope that I am beacon of sorts for them. Some stars fizzle out, but it’s my goal to shine bright. Read more>>

I was fascinated by cooking from a very young age. I loved watching the PBS shows with Justin Wilson and Jacques Pepin. After I graduating college (and with the wars in the Middle East intensifying,) I felt the need to serve. I was commissioned in the United States Marine Corps in 2004 and was winged a Naval Aviator in 2006. I reported to Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 363, in Kaneohe, Hawaii, in 2007. Read more>>

I had an amazing career as a senior audio engineer with a top record company, living and working in New York City. After ten years of working 100+ hour weeks, 30-hour shifts, and endless days of not getting to see the sunlight, I decided I needed a change. Towards the end of that time, 9/11 happened. The trauma experienced that day, and the days following changed me forever. Read more>>

I’m Hannah. I am a deep lover of humans above all. Being together, authentically, embodied, is what makes me tick. Every life choice (location, schooling, etc.) revolves around community, the reciprocity of living, loving and serving each other and the greater whole. So teaching dance and coaching seamlessly weave my love of embodiment, creativity, humanity and transformation. Read more>>

I have baby pictures of me sitting at the piano… I started piano lessons at the same time I started reading and have been a musician in some capacity my whole life. It took a while to find my niche as a Music Wellness Advocate, but a musician’s life is rarely linear and typically not an easy road. I’m classically trained, but never enjoyed practicing. While my piano teacher said if I practiced, I could be a concert pianist. Read more>>

Having spent the last 15 years working in Burn/Trauma ICU’s across the US and most recently serving as the trauma director for a level 1 trauma center, I began to see the need for a change in the approach to healthcare and access for clients looking to enhance their health and wellness using prescriptive therapies we’ve been utilizing in the hospital systems for decades.

I got back to Australia after working abroad and immediately started growing a psychology practice. It started off as just me, and then the team grew to seven employees. Growing the business was fun, but I wanted more. I remember sitting at my desk after a long day at my psychology practice. I’d seen eight people back to back for coaching. Read more>>

Yotam and Mojo Monjack

We come from a creative home, and we specifically use the word “home” and not a house, cause words matter. A house is the structure, but a home is where you form your relationships and memories. Our journey is to create this feeling and connection between our pieces and our customers. Our parents are architects and interior designers and we both grew-up breathing design. Read more>>

Allison Blakeney

I started deeply engaging with tarot, and combining my love of tarot with my love of movement/dance, when I got sober, a little over four years ago. At that point, I had been dancing for about 20 years and had been around tarot before, but not in the degree I was. I was looking for a non-traditional way to connect with spirituality. I started looking into witchcraft forms and was struggling with the gendered aspects of many different religions and spirituality. Read more>>
