I’m Sara. I’m a speaker, teacher, writer, and co-conspirator. I work with folks on their journey to be and do better through tough conversations, inspiring reflections, and deep compassion for self. We want a better world…and we want it now. It’s okay if you don’t know where to start. I’ve got you. I believe that the way to tackle difficult issues is to show up as your real, raw, bold, vulnerable self, and always be ready for fun.

Courageous conversations lead to courageous actions. I will push you out of your comfort zone with straight talk and loving ways. No coddling and no shaming.

Get Messy, Get Better

In these guided conversations we dive into dialogue, we get messy, we fuck up, we keep trying. It’s a different kind of learning with a foundation of love and humanity.

Messy conversations, messy mistakes, messy next steps…on the way to getting better.
