I'm Cheryl. I'm a joy-seeking, meaning making, idea generating, powerful creator.
My life is driven by three questions:
What do I want to create today?
Who do I need to be to create it?
How can I serve to remind others that they are powerful creators, too?
I LOVE life, because I know what it's like to NOT love life so much. My life's passion is sharing the magic and joy of creativity and the gifts of mindfulness with YOU. I know that if I can take my life from darkness, depression and anxiety to a space of light, love and utter happiness, then anyone can! I overcame a very tough childhood that makes me a statistical anomaly. The level of love, compassion, insight and forgiveness I gleaned from it has made me feel like it was a gift, and that it's my DUTY to be a sunshiny light for others. I LOVE to watch people grow.
In the past 20 years I have done a PhD's worth of research (and certifications) in the areas of mindfulness, neuroscience, creativity and mindset, and have used this knowledge and wisdom to become the person I am, creating a life I absolutely love. I believe in the power of self-actualization and there truly is nothing greater to me that watching you discover how incredibly unique and brilliant you are. You are literally one of a kind, you are a creative light with a particular zone of genius in you, and if you aren't actualizing, you are robbing yourself and the people you touch of your light and your gifts.
Fun Stuff About Me:
Aside from being in my studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband and teens, hiking, playing with my fur-babies Nama, and our tri-pawd pup Peg. I'm usually laughing about something with friends, learning something (because I'm nerdy like that), making art, or probably listening to music & dancing. I love adventure travel, I'm freakishly punctual, I'm a compulsive book sniffer, and I think all people are miraculous geniuses and I love to ask questions and listen. I'm an ENFP. My BANK code is AKNB, my top three character traits are appreciation of beauty and excellence, curiosity and creativity. And don't judge me, but I totally hate cheese.
