Spaces to connect

Workshops are intimate gatherings and spaces to connect, support, and grow alongside one another.  I currently run two ongoing workshops:

Entrepreneurial Mothers Circle

The minute I walked in the door to the first circle, I felt excited, comfortable and so so happy I had made the decision to join. Abby’s welcoming smile, hilarious sense of humor, and personal nature immediately put the group at ease and got us sharing in a more intimate and open way than I had felt with others in so long. I left that first meeting feeling connected, confident, and inspired.
