The January 2017 Guest Speaker line-up is below!

Nicole DiCristofaro      

As an Empowerment Coach and certified Best Year Yet™ Coach, Nicole provides dedicated accountability to inspire you in developing positive habits so that you are more successful in all areas of life.

With Nicole’s encouragement and “tough and tender” approach, she will challenge you to really understand who you truly are and what has been holding you back from actualizing the life you are worthy and deserving of having.

“Love and relationships are my passion” Nicole often shares when asked why she chose to be a coach. “The relationship we have with ourselves is pivotal to having healthy, growing relationships with others. I found my purpose through all of the failures that taught me so much about myself and I felt compelled to share this knowledge with the world. Our greatest teachers in life are the people with which we’ve loved and the pain that often comes with being vulnerable.”

Do you want someone who’ll be there for you to listen deeply and then help you recalibrate and focus to take positive action?

Nicole and her husband, Gabriel, currently reside in Florida. Together, as a team, they actively pursue creating positive change in their community and around the world.

Maggie Kyle Petraits        

We are all energy. Pure loving energy - created from love, by a loving Universe - on a journey through this life to grow, share and become this pure love. “White hot saints, Dark mysterious sinners” will take you on a path to balance, clear and embrace the energies within us.

Maggie Kyle Petraits first experienced her “hot hands” as a child - not realizing the gift she held….. her backrubs, placing of hands and touch were “magical”…. Not until a friend who had been in a serious car accident and was in pain. When Maggie used her touch technique and the pain was relieved, her find commented “I didn’t know you knew Reiki”…. Maggie innocently commented “What’s Reiki?”

This started her on a path to study Reiki and other energy healing modalities. Today, she owns her own business incorporating her energy work with Infinite Possibilities coaching, art and interior design. An Usui Reiki Master, Certified Energy Healer and Certified Infinite Possibilities trainer, Maggie has blended these with her 30+ years as an interior designer to guide her clients through the process of “Redesigning their interior, to redesign their life!”

Cori uses her knowledge and training in psychology and energy dynamics, combined with her own story and journey of transcending catastrophic thinking, anxiety, panic attacks and exquisite abandonment issues, to assist others in working through their physical, emotional and/or spiritual blocks to express their greatest longings in their life and career by releasing fear, anxiety and habitual behavior patterns to attain optimal health.
