Biographical Info

Hi, I’m Tracy – mom of 3 teen boys, married to my high school sweetie and I am a Self Mastery Coach & Healer. I teach women how to own their energy/presence fully which allows them to rewrite the stories of their past, set clear boundaries in their life and put themselves first! I use tools such as hypnosis, emotional freedom technique, meditation and traditional life coaching to aid in the process of releasing unconscious thoughts/feelings that contribute to feeling anxious, alone and stuck in their lives.

• Eliminate people pleasing
• Learn to manage thoughts and feelings to reduce day to day stress – in the moment!
• Strengthen the mind, body and spirit connection
• No more living life on the backburner

After my own health crash in 2011, I was unable to find long lasting transformation with traditional medicine. Looking for relief from my physical ailments (chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, adrenal fatigue and exhaustion) as well as my mental/emotional state (anxiety/depression), I found that alternative therapies healed me 100% AND gave me a clear foundation for handling life chaos with ease and flow. It works and now I get to share all of these fantastic methods with women who want permanent positive transformation in their lives!

Biographical Info

Years ago a friend handed me a bottle of essential oil, I tried it, and to my surprise it worked almost immediately. A short time later I attended an intro to essential oil class and for the first time in years I was given hope.

Hello my name is Rebecca, I am a wife, a mother to eight children, an entrepreneur of several businesses, and a child of God. I have no time to be anything but healthy. However, being healthy for me was not always the case.

Sometimes life throws at us very challenging circumstances that lead us down some very unhappy and unhealthy paths. Years of my life were spent dealing with migraines, hormone issues, depression, fatigue, anxiety, among many other things. To top it off, due to toxic chemicals and stress in my life, an autoimmune disorder had taken over my body. My quality of life was very low…..I was only surviving at that time.

Then, I was introduced to Young Living essential oils. It was life changing for me and my family. I learned how to use different oils to support different body parts and you know what?… it all worked!!! My life now is a living testimony of it. Young Living also has many natural and plant-based products that make it easy to get rid of toxic chemicals from your home and replace them with healthier options.

To name a few:
Thieves cleaning line
Savvy Minerals Makeup
Natural beauty products
Seedling line for babies
Animal products
and the list goes on…

Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, I cannot diagnose or treat you. However, I would like to get to know you as a friend. I would be happy to share with you what I have learned in a class setting or just a one-on-one with you. Young living essential oil changed my life for the better which has given me passion to help others. If you are even a little bit curious about essential oils, then feel free to reach out to me!

Biographical Info

Discovering mold in your home or business, or during your real estate transaction is never fun. The emotions that usually come along with the discovery or concern are fear, worry and frustration.
I understand this and work to ease those concerns by properly assessing your unique situation.

If you’re not sure you have mold, but you just don’t feel well in your home or you notice that “musty smell”, you could have elevated airborne mold spore counts, or mold lurking somewhere you aren’t even aware of. We are able to perform air sampling (testing) to determine if remediation is necessary.
If a Home inspection uncovered mold, I am aware of the time sensitivity and can get you the answers you need, fast. As a former top mortgage banker, I have a unique perspective that gives me an edge over others in my industry. I’ve seen many deals fall through due to mold, and now I have a solution and insight to get those deals to closing. Our process is non toxic, fast and very affordable. Don’t let mold stress you out any longer!

When I’m not helping to ease mold concerns, I love serving those around me and in my community. I’m very excited to join WWC as the Chapter Philanthropist for the Strongsville Chapter. I’ve been a proud resident of Strongsville for 5 years with my husband Mike and our rescue dog Ginger.

Biographical Info

I’m Effie, a provider of accounting, tax and advisory services for small business (profit and non-profit) and individuals. I am an active certified public accountant and have been assisting clients for over twenty-five years. I truly enjoy and thrive in the relationships I build with my clients. People avoid and put-off the dreaded time of year (“Tax Time”) as they are unsure of whether they are going to owe or receive money back from the IRS. Planning is key especially when major life events occur – marriage, babies, career changes, retirement. These changes will impact – positively or negatively – your tax liability and planning will prepare you for that. When I am not meeting with clients, I am with my family – husband of 27 years and 3 awesome children that I am incredibly proud of.
