Imagine a day dedicated to fun, perspective, kindness and connection.
Imagine having the tools and meeting the people who will allow you to make that a permanent part of your life.
Imagine the most fun you can have on a weekday, and how it will transform how you work,
how you treat yourself and others, and how you go about your daily life.

 

Walk away with leadership and networking skills, a renewed sense of purpose, time management hacks and powerful connections so you can do more of what lights you up!

 
 
 
 

At SPARK, you will learn how to:

  • accomplish everything on that "to-do" list with more joy and purpose
  • learn tips and tricks to prioritizing your time for the things that really matter to you
  • find ways to create more ME time with things that fill your cup
  • ditch the superhero cape and overcome guilt
  • celebrate your awesomeness without feeling like you have to be modest
  • techniques for gracefully saying "no" to the things you really don't want to or can't do
  • recruit the right people for your life - in your career and beyond
  • say “yes” to the love and support that surrounds you without feeling like you are weak or bothering someone
  • put YOURSELF first so you can increase the impact on the lives you were meant to touch
     

On this unforgettable day, you will experience:

  • feeling rejuvenated and motivated (like you just left a massage!)
  • permission to be yourself (and permission to take off the masks we sometimes feel like we have to wear!)
  • amazing connections (and some business deals and lifelong friendships, too!)
  • seeing things in ways you haven't seen before (because there's so many more beautiful sides to what we see right now!)
  • the kind of fun you haven't had in a long time (like when we played in puddles as kids!)

 

    This event is for you if you:

    • are looking to surround yourself with more awesome people
    • want to be better at asking for what you really want
    • ready to get pumped up for all life has to offer
    • want to celebrate and have a ton of fun
    • love being inspired and receiving great tips and resources
    • find yourself being tired of being tired and desire more ME time, more joy, and more peace
    • crave the tools to live the life you want

     

    Your ticket includes:

    • Event materials
    • Reflection journal
    • Light breakfast and coffee
    • Lunch buffet
    • Afternoon snacks and coffee
    • Event parking
     
     
     
     
     

    SPARK is an interactive and invigorating day of fun and reflection designed to celebrate the glorious, complicated and accomplished women that we are. 

    Whether you are single or married, a mom, partner, wife or girlfriend, sister or daughter, you are on a journey that at times makes you vulnerable and that at times calls on you to stand stronger than you've ever imagined.

    YOU are a unique and powerful woman who works hard and who loves even harder.

    But how much of that love are you giving to yourself?

    We spend so much time worrying about our duty to our work and our loved ones. We expend a lot of emotional energy worrying about whether we’re doing enough and being enough.  Next thing we know, we don’t recognize the woman in the mirror. Or maybe, we haven’t given ourselves permission to show all that we are - how funny we can be, how well we can lead, or how much we long for recognition and community.

    The best thing we can do for those we love is to love ourselves in the best way we can. Make yourself a priority and show up even bigger and brighter for everyone who comes in contact with you. Celebrate all you possess and live the life YOU deserve.

    That's why I've designed this extraordinary day especially for you - because I'm also that woman and I’ve been there too!

    Join us for this special opportunity to disconnect from the daily roles we assign ourselves and meet with other unique women from all walks of life.

    It’s time to SPARK JOY! Are you ready?
