“In the past 6 months I have worked with the most amazing Professionals, far above my 30 years in the corporate world, and it’s been a pleasure! These women are intelligent, nurturing, conscientious, supportive and empathetic. Since starting the Mother Tree program I really have a different outlook on life! I believe it’s not too late for me to live with purpose and intention.”

“I made some of the most amazing friendships, one of which led to a business partnership (and the launch of our doula agency Columbia Crossings!). It was great to hear other peoples experiences and perspectives and have space to talk about difficult subjects. The supplemental business trainings were a great source of further learning and growth!”
