wellness is an inside job. 



In 2004, after a decade as an award-winning journalist, I stepped out onto a path to help teen moms thrive. My role was to match teen moms with mentors and lead programming that inspired these young women to graduate high school and lead positive lives. 

Eventually, after I became a mother of twins myself, I launched a freelance writing career focused on wellness, parenting and mindfulness. 

That was when I started blogging and leading online courses and workshops focused on life design and life balance. 

In 2013, I founded The Abundant Mama Project, a membership community and program. In 2020, I rebranded to Shawn Fink Soul Alignment Coaching. 

I am certified and trained in mindfulness, positive psychology and Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead™. 

Currently, I work with women in private coaching or leading work-life balance and wellbeing trainings and retreats for organizations. 

Increase Positivity & Moral

My work is rooted in mindfulness, positive psychology and life design and wellness coaching. Boosting positivity so that your employees and teams thrive and flourish is at the heart of every workshop and retreat I lead.

Manage Stress & Uncertainty

At the heart of my work-life wellness workshops and keynote speeches is this fact: We are all juggling a lot and stress is a given. How we handle that stress is what matters. Through goal setting, mindfulness practices and time management instruction, your team will be more fired up to get to work and handle the hard things and mistakes.

Boost Your Bottom Line

The science is clear. When a person’s well-being is thriving and flourishing they are going to be happier and more productive at home and at work. All of my programs are rooted in the science of well-being based on the theories of positive psychology. Not only will your team feel better after implementing what they learn, they will be more happy and more engaged in your outcomes.

Turn your workplace into a strong, calm and healthy environment where every team member thrives and flourishes at work and at home.
