Caryn O'Sullivan

 I am a wife, mother of 2 girls, and a formerly exhausted woman who, at one point, couldn’t not get through the day without a nap! I understand how low energy can interfere with your life, and prevent you from accomplishing what you want to do – or even getting anything done! I was always one of those kids who could eat anything and never gain weight.  That was, of course, until college. Month after month I gained pound after pound.  I was never really heavy, but it was enough weight gain to cause concern – and an eating disorder. Over the next seven years I worked to heal myself from those destructive years. I moved to Spain and started feeling better. Then I moved to England, and things got bad. I started suffering from migraines, blackouts, stomach issues, restless legs, low energy and eventually hearing loss, and no one could help me. There was no medical reason for my ailments. I was scared.

After a year of failed tests and being told it was “all in my head”, I turned to acupuncture, diet and faith.  I started to learn about how everything in the body is connected, and how what I eat affects how I feel. I changed my diet and had immediate results.  My eyes were opened and I knew health and food was my passion, and new path. Visit Caryn's site

Osheta Moore

My name is Osheta. It's pronounced, "O-she-da" and so many people have asked if it means something. It doesn't. My dad just made it up. But if I were to go to Urban Dictionary and create a definition for my name it might say something like this:

An ESFJ mama who loves parties, people, and popcorn with red wine. A pastor's wife who is convinced God has a sense of humor. A Peacemaker who loves Jesus a lot and cusses... a little. An optimistic cookbook reader. A hopeless romantic. A goofball with a little bit of sass. Her life goal is to dance in a flash mob and embarrass the heck out of her teenager! Visit Osheta's site.

Shoshanna Hecht

I've been working with clients for over 10 years, helping them to navigate the ups and downs of life, and over time, I've become fascinated by the key role human relationships play in overall happiness and well-being. As a Personal Strategist, I work with clients to help them authentically own their role in their relationships. We humans don't do anything in isolation and since we can't control other people, what we've got to do is figure out how to notice our reactions and what we do with them. I'm passionate about helping clients get clear on the relationships they have & want in their life, assess how those relationships are going, 
and help make them as strong as they possibly can be.

I believe that our choices flow from our inter-connectedness, and it's very important that our relationships are intentional. Without work and attention, relationships lose their power and effectiveness over time. Visit Shoshanna's site
