A “Get Organized” session for busy parents with Marie Levey-Pabst

Medford, MA

Marie helps working parents reclaim their time and energy and maximize what they spend on the things that matter most. You know that swirl of remembering, noticing, and planning that you do in your head . . . constantly? It's called the "mental load" and it's not just you—plenty more people (especially parents and caretakers) carry it. (Learn more here!) In your one-hour session with Marie (worth $100), you'll discuss your mental load, make it visible, and then set up a system to keep that mental load out of your head. The result? More mental space to focus on what matters most to you.

A SwapIt Light closet styling session with Stefanie Johnson

Medford, MA

Stefanie created SwapIt because she knew she didn’t need a $5,000 shopping spree to make her style happen; she wanted to make the most out of what she already owned. In this 1-hour session (worth $125), you'll be able to dial into the styling topics that matter most to you! That includes things like packing for a trip, planning next week's outfits, matching up some skirts, find something to wear to a conference, weeding out t-shirts—the list goes on! Stefanie and team will get to know you, go through their workbook, and work together to shop your closet and create outfits to match your needs and goals for the session.

12 meals and a loaf of fresh-baked bread from Ashlee Thompson

Cambridge, MA

When Ashlee found herself stuck in a job that she didn't enjoy, she dove right into learning everything she could about cooking, an area she had always felt drawn to. She is finishing her bachelor’s with hopes to one day open a bakery. Her meal giveaway (worth over $100) will feed a family of four three times, and you can choose exactly how you want to break those up (three dinners or one day’s full of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, for example).

A wellness coaching session with Danielle Gottesman

Arlington, MA

After nearly twenty years as a Pilates instructor with a passion for wellness, a formal education as a Wellness Coach led Danielle to specialize in self care for individuals, and food allergy consults for families. During her coaching session (worth over $100), Danielle will review the client’s goals and take stock of areas of life that need work to come up with an approach to move them closer to achieving those goals, in areas from food to mediation, and much more.

A fitness assessment with Kim Raubenheimer

Belmont, MA

Kim created Your Health Sense, a nutrition and fitness coaching company, in the late 90's. She was determined to learn all she could about nutrition, fitness, sleep, stress, hydration, and movement and what it does for the body. Now in her 50's she feels better than she did in her 20's. During this 45-minute session with Kim (worth $100), you'll get an assessment and analysis of your posture and functional movements. Interested mothers can even get a diastasis recti assessment, if requested. At the end you'll have recommendations made based on the goals you discussed.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we share a bit more about the women behind each of these amazing services on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.
