Davina Baptiste | Women’s Wellness Coach

Becoming a wellness coach was never on my list of things to do in the past. I loved makeup and art and thought that was my calling. However, about 5 years ago, I decided I needed to begin taking care of my health. I was overweight a literally sick and tired every day.

Tiffany Moore | Owner & Operator

I worked for a Fortune 500 financial institution for 16 years before starting my business.

Ryan Hertel | Entreprenuer & Business Builder

Becoming an entrepreneur just happened pretty naturally. It wasn’t a matter of wanting to be one, it simply came down to “well, this is the only way to achieve my goals.” So that’s what I did.
