Our Pillars

Inspiring Human Potential


Awareness ignites the power to change. Self-awareness is the first step for real change to occur. It is the foundation for a healthy, joyful, and purposeful life.


Mindset is the fuel for change. It is the second step for real change to occur. Changing mindset is a choice and is accomplished through disciplined self-awareness and reframing.

Behavior Change

Behavior is the vehicle for change. Changing our behaviors is the third step for real change to occur. Behavior originates in our subconscious. When mindset changes, behavior follows.

Thank you for the wonderful experience you provided for the faculty, staff, students, and community guests at our first annual health market. The knowledge and personal experiences you shared helped our employees to reflect on their choices and behaviors and to consider how these things impact their quality of life. You challenged our staff to take control of their well-being by making better choices, setting priorities, and enjoying life. Your presentation was very well received and met a need for those in attendance. I believe that your presentation helped set the stage for our employees to be more effective in their work lives while increasing the level of enjoyment and satisfaction in their personal lives.

Your comments really hit home and it was like a lot of what you were saying was designed especially for me. I want to thank you for the direction you have helped me see and the fact that I have to be positive for me before I can be positive for anyone else.

Loved your "balance" talk at the recent SHRM conference. It was the best one of the day!

I am someone who is interested in a million things, and is also recently married. The conversation around setting priorities for life really resonated with me."

I met Chris in 2009 when she had a speaking engagement with the Womens Leadership Forum at my workplace. I loved her from the start; she exudes tremendous energy and positivity that is infectious. As a speaker, Chris is engaging and easily holds your attention throughout her presentations. Soon after, I hired Chris to be my Coach. Chris is very personable, has tremendous experience and professionalism, held me accountable, listened to what I had to share, and offered terrific guidance! Chris was able to help me see where I needed to make improvements in my life/career to make a positive difference in my life.

It was so good to meet a fellow healer this evening at eWomen Network, Buxmont. I loved your talk! Glad to meet a kindred spirit in the Ascension process too. I do hope our paths cross again sometime.

Great job at the SHRM conference, you really hit the nail on the head with all the stressors we have in our lives, we really do need to take stock of our priorities....we just need to have businesses buy into this as well.
