Meet the Founders

 Oh hey sister! We’re Melissa and Sandy. We met at a fitness event in 2013 and the rest was history. We are all about helping you to live in alignment as you build your empire and create a big impact in the world.   Our mission is to empower you to declare your Higher calling through our Signature Alignment Model of self-care, money mindset and a road-map to success. Throughout the weekend, we will uncover the limiting beliefs keeping you stuck. We will equip you with exercises and practices that will elevate you to step into the Divine leader you’re meant to be.


"This was the ONLY event I have ever been to that I implemented what I learned! And I have been to a lot of events! I walked away with a WHOLE new community of amazing and inspiring women. The meditations were incredible, that was the first time I was able to feel and see during my meditations. Slowing down is the new speeding up! I realized how important it is to slow down just as much as the hustle is, and it doesn’t and shouldn’t be hard to accomplish what’s burning in your soul! I have grown so much spiritually since the Align & Rise event that I’m even more eager to go and experience it at such a deeper level!" 

Jamie Roberts, Lifestyle Coach


We created this transformational weekend specifically FOR YOU and you belong in this room.


This is the EXACT weekend that will catapult you to DECLARING the life and business of your dreams.  


We know that deep within you there’s a bright, abundant, radiating version of you READY to stand out but you’ve been hiding and afraid to declare what your heart really desires.


You are really committed to your dreams but you feel overwhelmed, burnt out and lack the energy or momentum to make them actually come true.


You are always dreaming of having more abundance but you can’t seem to crack the code on how to actually charge what you’re worth.


You are so ready to take the BIG LEAP but your Google search history will tell you that you’re not sure what the next step is and just want a clear roadmap. 


You know that more success is in your future but you’re afraid leaving behind the people you care about. 


To top it off, you REALLY don’t want to do this alone. You crave a deeper connection with like-minded women.


Girlfriend, no matter where you’re at in this entrepreneurial journey, we get you because we’ve been there. We experienced first hand what it’s like to use your voice and DECLARE YOUR DESIRES. We’re going to take you by the hand and walk you through the aligned roadmap step by step. 


Here’s the truth…


There has never been a more powerful time to be a woman than RIGHT NOW. Being around other women with dreams just as big as you, supporting you along the way is CONTAGIOUSLY MAGNIFYING. 


This is why we created Align & Rise. 


It is the ultimate life & business breakthrough weekend that will leave you clearly seeing MORE for yourself. 


We can't wait to love on you!
