What people are saying…
“I really loved the experience last night and I believe it truly is going to help me turn my intentions into realities. Thanks for supporting such a wonderful opportunity to grow!"
"Soul-Full Sunday was such a refreshing way to close out the weekend and prep for a new week. Marina had everything organized and thought out. All I had to do was show up and enjoy the afternoon with new friends."
-J.C., Soul-Full Sunday Series
I'm not a very open person about my emotions. This was a great workshop for me because it forced me out of my comfort zone. Not only did I have to write down my intentions, but I also had to share them with a stranger. It wasn't as awful as I thought it would be and in fact, it was really nice to set some intentions and then say them out loud and get the support that I didn't realize I needed. Because of this workshop I feel like I'm moving forward in my intentions that I set that night!
Marina is the personal cheerleader/coach I never knew I always wanted. She talks to me like a real person, but can still back up everything she says with the knowledge and expertise that come from her educational and professional experience. Speaking as a 24-year-old woman in the midst of an insanely transitional life period, Marina’s voice is the one I needed in my ear, urging me forward one step at a time, while subtly challenging my perceptions of not only myself, but also my situation. She knows what’s up because she’s clearly put in the time and effort to understand where I’m coming from, and she’s always completely on point with her advice and suggestions. The bottom line is I think every woman in her 20’s ought to have someone unbiased, like Marina, in her corner to bounce ideas off of, encourage her, and guide her through arguably one of the toughest decades of life.

Marina has made this process not only super fulfilling but also just a lot of fun. Even after just the first session I left feeling like I had concrete goals and wasn’t afraid to tackle them because of the way that Marina made them feel like a positive opportunity rather than an anxiety provoking one. I was motivated to try out tools that Marina gave me and she was always available for consultation whether it be to check in to see if I followed through on a goal or just offer general words of encouragement. This time in our lives (20’s in general) can seem overwhelming and we might even compare ourselves to others but Marina helped coach me into a better mindset, and gave me personalized tools to accomplish my goals. Thank you so much Marina!

Marina’s life coaching sessions helped me focus on what I wanted out of my career. I felt like I was dragged in 10 directions, then after undergoing the coaching sessions, every problem seemed to have a solution. I felt more focused at work and on my career goals. She was easy to talk to and listened very closely to my struggles. Opening up about my life was a lot easier than I imagined. She went out of her way to find and discuss solutions. It was a great experience that made me appreciate my career a lot more than I previously had.
