Let’s Get to Know Each Other

“I used to extinguish under the weight of living, but one day I reached into my chest, dusted off my courage and asked myself: Where’s Your fire?” — D. Antoinette Foy

Hello! My name is Shawn (She/Her)

My clients describe me as being a bit of fire and water. Strong yet gentle. Passionate yet patient. Honest with grace. 

I’ve never been one to wait around for others. I’ve never been one to follow the crowd. I’ve never been one to settle. 

The result is that I have found a happy place in creating a life that works for me in the moment and now helping others do the same.

Early in my career, that meant being a journalist. Until journalism didn’t work for me.

Then, it meant working for a non-profit, until that didn’t work for me.

Eventually, I worked in politics and state government — until that really, really didn’t work for me. 

It was only upon creating my own heart-centered coaching and teaching business did I finally feel at home in myself. 

I have a mastery in being human. In making mistakes and bouncing FORWARD from those mistakes. And I am a soulful human being seeking out other soulful human beings. 

All of these paths led me to here. This moment. Where I now offer life design & resilience trainings and coaching for rising leaders and creative entrepreneurs.

Now, I work with organizations and private clients to raise YOUR positive vibe so you can make a bigger impact in your community or industry. 

The world needs brave leadership more than ever right now. It needs you to have a fire inside of you to make great things or to make great things happen.

This world needs YOU to do your part to bring peace, calm and positivity and to do what you can to create hope in a world filled with despair.

My coaching and training philosophy is as much about creating an upward positive spiral in your life and on your team as it is about creating that same energy in our communities. 

Now, I want to know about you. I love to ask BIG questions that make you think and get to know yourself better. I love to challenge the way you think and the way you move through your life. I love to inspire you take bold action with big impact.


Right this minute, I am still focused on a few projects that I am passionate about such as my family wellness coaching business over at The Abundant Mama Project, which is a vibrant community for mothers who want to live a more present, peaceful and playful life. I host monthly thematic workshops and develop workbooks for women who are learning to care for themselves more deeply in my membership community.

In 2020, I began my 10th year of a daily gratitude practice that has sustained me and helped my life tremendously. 

I love to write Mindful Monday Missives — love notes sent out to you by email about mastering the art of being and doing in your life so you can share your good energy with others to build a more happy world.

My big DREAM and focus is on releasing my STRONG and CALM Leaders Program to employers and business leaders and CEOs. My STRONG and CALM Approach is a resiliency boosting program that infuses mindfulness, the science of gratitude, positive psychology and life coaching. STRONG and CALM Leaders kicks off on May 1st. 

I am also in the process of developing and designing a supportive and spiritually nourishing community enrichment program for Midlife women. This mastermind of sorts will run over the course of 3-months and is designed to empower passionate, women leaders to live a deeper, more meaningful life of doing — and being — so they can be more resilient and energized to keep doing amazing work in this world. Midlife Magic Mastermind Kicks off on April 1st.
