Our Founder

Dena Billups

It was a Saturday class with competing needs of childcare and school, I was reminded I could still create a new trajectory through the eyes of my little one.  We have the power to choose our narrative as I watched my daughter's tiny little hands keep up with the rest of the students in my art class, I decided on that day, that I had to live a life that was bold, fearless and without excuse.  I've learned that success is only mastered when we tell our story, hold onto our childlike faith, brush on the colors of forgiveness, love, and hope. We all have a story and a journey that takes us to the core of who we are created to be.  My two seasons have finally glided; as I have found love to be the commonality of single parenting and marriage.   The lessons interwoven together in these two seasons have taught me that light shines brighter in the darkest of places. Change is inevitable and having someone to coach us through and ask the hard questions can push us beyond our limited beliefs into our place of wealth . 

With 20 years of experience leading others in the field of training and development and child welfare Dena is living her life's passion bridging the gap for vulnerable communities.  She is a voice for the voiceless, and has delivered multiple trainings such as Sex Abuse, Human Trafficking, Mental Health and Substance Abuse, to a workforce of over 7,000 employees. She continues to  support statewide initiatives that promote change for families and is currently on a board serving Foster and Adoptive families. She is an Author-Artist, and holds a Masters in Human Services . When Dena is not serving others she is spending valuable time with family. She is the mother of two children and is married to her life-long partner and best friend. 

Dena believes that we all can ART (activate right thinking), and "When you win I win, and together we are liberated"...Dena Billups

During this economic,social, physiological pandemic and unprecedented times there are a lot of uncertainties for families, and her role as a coach and trainer is to assist. As a coach, I help create better lives, careers, and relationships so that people can feel safe in their own spaces especially now that basic needs are compromised.


We are here to serve you and win!
