Our Founder

Dena Billups

It was a Saturday class with competing needs of childcare and school, and 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, and  as I sat in my  Saturday art class with my daughter I witnessed her tiny little hands keep up with the rest of the students in class.  That was the day that I made a choice 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, and 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. 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 . 

Dena  has over 20 years of experience leading others in the field of training, coaching and professional development. It is her life's passion to bridge 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.



"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style." "Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently."   Maya Angelou
