We believe that Achieving Alchemy is accessing your ultimate brilliance.

Achieving Alchemy is connecting to the straight-up magical mix of everything that makes you who you are. It's what occurs when you shine brightly, show up fully, and say “yes” to you and what's possible.

Alchemy is powerful leadership, it's expressing your authentic voice, your genius, your essence, your way of leading and being in the world. 

Achieving Alchemy involves magic, chemistry, transformation, conversation, and just enough fire to heat things up.

We know that Achieving Alchemy isn’t easy.

Our Alchemy gets buried - beneath the beliefs we hold, beneath the fears and limitations that obstruct our path forward. 

Our Alchemy gets lost amidst the artificial ingredients we add to the mix, attempting to meet expectations of ourselves, society, and others.

Our Alchemy lies dormant inside us, when the possibility of truly shining in the world feels downright terrifying.

Our mission:

To hold a fire under your desires as you courageously unearth and embrace the full radiance of your authenticity, empowering you to create massive ripples of impact. 

This is where the magic of achieving alchemy becomes possible.

Think of Achieving Alchemy as the coolest professional development event you’ll ever attend.

No naps in your chair or stale powerpoint here. This is a highly experiential, interactive event - a healthy mix of deep exploration and powerful action, infused with sisterhood, community, and connection.

Achieving Alchemy will empower you to:

The Alchemy of Jess and Sarah 

Combined, Jess and Sarah bring 25 years of experience working with leaders and teams in the corporate setting. They met in 2013 while pursuing their coaching certification through The Coaches Training Institute and instantly connected over their shared backgrounds in organizational and leadership development, their love of coaching, and their passion for combining the two. As their conversations continued, so did the serendipity; they discovered shared desires that were rooted in similar values, visions, and beliefs, and eerily similar tastes on way too many levels to count. They realized that their corporate backgrounds had stirred up something similar within each of them - a longing to create a bigger conversation about showing up for work as all of who we are.... as women, as leaders, as humans. They are thrilled to leverage their backgrounds and zones of genius in offering this transformational program, and can't wait to meet you at the event.
