our team

We know you because we are you.

You need to know a bit more about us before you decide to trust us with your mastery journey. Before we introduce ourselves individually, allow us to explain our why. 

What’s our why?
Why do we do what we do?

We grew up as athletes and driven go-getters who liked a challenge. We experienced our fair share of success in sport, but we both know all too well the disappointing feeling of defeat, and more significantly, the stinging feeling of underperforming. 

We each discovered the field of sport psychology and had our own light bulb moments of recognizing how consistent mental skills training would have benefited our competitive experiences. 

We founded our company to use our experience and our passion to help ambitious achievers out there like you to maximize potential through mindset mastery.

That was the original goal.

Over time, our mission has gotten even clearer.

As we ventured into the elite performance world as entrepreneurs, we experienced obstacle after obstacle, partly because we were learning how to run a business through trial and error (read: trial by fire!), and partly because we were young women (we bet you can relate to that). 

We practiced what we preached by focusing on what we could control, using strategic goal setting and vision-casting, and confidence-boosting imagery to catapult us along our journey to building a company that allows us to live our purpose. 

Now, we have a clear mission to empower women to maximize their potential and crush their goals — whether on the field or in the boardroom — through deliberate and intentional mindset work. 

We use our expertise as mindset architects to create a mastery blueprint for you. Your job is to execute the vision.
