After careers as Student Affairs Professionals in the Higher Education system, we sat down at a local Starbucks and listed our interests, skills, and abilities.  Based on all that we had to offer - and our intrinsic desire to make a difference in the world - we realize we have a passion to encourage self-confidence and leadership development in "the next generation." We opened our 400 square foot residential studio to others.  Ventura, our daughter, named our business, "Elevate Your Awesome" because that is what we do.  Together with our students, we elevate the awesomeness in each other.  Now, onward to our credentials....
