Our Sponsors Rock

A big HUGE thank you to our Sponsors including Krista Lynn Designs, Custom Events LLC, Organista, The Domesticated Dad, and Heidi Kleva Photography. Email us if you’d like to become a sponsor too, at .


The Location

Detour Gallery is a phenomenal 10,000 square foot art center that features 3 main exhibits, and we are blessed to invite you to such an inspiring venue.

The space will be ours to enjoy for the day as we delve into appreciating the magnificently made human beings that we are, while creating our own “masterpiece” with whatever tools, blessings, and messes we have been given in this very moment. Being surrounded by art, we will be reminded that we have the power to create something extraordinary that will also serve others well. The art will also show us of the meaning and beauty our imagination can bring forth when we open our hearts and tap into the extraordinary gifts we have been given, right within our reach.

A graduate of Lafayette College, Natalie worked in advertising at Ogilvy & Mather until starting design and branding firm, M Studio which still exists here in Asbury Park. She was a book reviewer for Shelf Awareness for nearly 4 years, and wrote a weekly humor blog called MILF: Mother I'd Like to Friend until being elected to the Oceanport Board of Education via a write-in vote in the Fall of 2015, and continues to serve her community by attempting to insure the schools in her town are well-run. Following a similar write-in vote style, Natalie joined our S.O.A.R team when Jenn and Jess placed her in the position of panel moderator without her asking to do so, or even knowing she would be doing it!! Jenn and Jess knew she would rock it at our first Symposium, and are so grateful she is bringing her inquisitive mind, genuine heart, and incredible energy as part of our S.O.A.R team!!

Her tagline is ``Any Occasion, Every Detail``, because she believes the time and energy put into an event creates a beautiful setting for the guests to enjoy. Nicole joined our S.O.A.R Team initially by offering to put together centerpieces for our first Symposium. She and Jenn immediately clicked, and spoke often about the vision and energy Jenn and Jess wanted the attendees to feel when they walked into the room. Nicole jumped in with her whole heart, and executed details of their vision beyond just centerpieces! She printed and put together our programs, cut and glued hot air balloons that were spread thoughtfully around the space, and even made little sustenance bags for our second break!! A natural fit, Nicole is part of our team and we couldn't be more grateful for her bringing her gifts to S.O.A.R.

Her tagline is ``Your world through my lens.``, and she sure delivers on that promise!! She captures moments beautifully, and so when she offered to photograph our first Symposium, we felt blessed to have someone there to do just that! Heidi not only took still candids and posed shots of attendees, she also caught our session leaders in action, got a rockin' group photo, and even video taped portions of the Symposium, as well as taking some testimonials from attendees. Having her on our S.O.A.R team not only provides us with beautiful memories, but also allows her to share her gifts with attendees as well!!

Should I ask my employer to send me to S.O.A.R?

This makes us so happy!! Employers who support growth and development are AWESOME!!

We told her, in general, the Symposium speakers will provide tools and inspiration for achieving your goals, discovering / using all of your gifts / talents, being resilient during challenges, contributing to your workplace / community, and keeping organized inside and out!

The Symposium will also help women learn to be present, so in the workplace all of this translates to being fully present and focused on the task at hand allowing you to seamlessly move from task to task with precision, as opposed to frantically multitasking when more than one project is in motion. It will also help with stress management, overcoming challenges / obstacles, and improve organizational skills.

Tell your employers, ladies!! Today's the last day for Early Bird Pricing, but we have some group rates as well!
