Our Story

In 2016, a few of us stopped daydreaming about how we wished the world was and began taking action planting the first seeds of Masterful U. We expected working together to support people in intentional living would be fun and easy. 

We quickly discovered that to be effective in a non-traditional environment; we would have to learn how to be different (well, non-traditional) together. Becoming ‘collaboration ready’ while writing our own handbook on how to do it was tough—and so worth it! 

With perseverance (and plenty of stubbornness), we were able to navigate our failed starts, epic frustrations, and gut-wrenching disappointments. We came to understand what was getting in our way, found our footing, and moved forward with renewed purpose. 

MU’s core curriculum is what we used to transform from being separate individuals with a great idea to a freely collaborative team with a cohesive transformational business. 

Today, we share what we have learned—and continue to learn together—with our ever-growing community. Thanks to our one-of-a-kind programs, commitment to authenticity, and total dedication to those we serve, we are a safe space for the swift, gentle transformation shifts big and small require.

We look forward to welcoming you and supporting your journey—whatever your vision.

Masterful U is exciting to me because...

 it is offering what we need as individuals and groups to create the better world we imagine.

What's something 'silly' or 'simple' that you do that those closest to you cherish that seems out-of-character?

I do silly ad-lib dances with or without music when the mood strikes me.

What do you do that gives you energy? (What makes your heart sing?)

I walk in the woods with my dog and play with my horses nearly every day. It's easiest for me to be fully present and relaxed when I'm in nature with animals.

Travel. There's something about visiting new places, people, and cultures that makes me feel my most vibrant.
