Owner, Coach & Nature Guide

Yancy is a guide to the unconscious realm. He supports teams and leaders with better connecting to nature and themselves by unraveling core issues holding them back from what they really want. He’s been a behavior change facilitator and corporate leader for 17 years.

After experiencing a career burnout as a leader in the green building industry, he shifted to leverage his lessons learned by creating unique transformational experiences for people to participate in life as nature intended; simple, regenerative, healthy, and full of joy.

His focus the last 8 years has been on healthy communication and conscious leadership. With a masters degree in Architecture he creates unique learning structures while leveraging his depth of experience as a Hendricks Institute Leadership & Transformation Coach and HeartMath Institute coach.



Facilitator and Coach

Leah is extremely effective as an XCHANGE Guide facilitator and intenSati Leader. A soulFULL teacher for change makers and heart centered leaders, her bright energy is inspiring and playful. Leah is the co-creator of the REVEAL Retreat, author of the book Modern Fear The Invisible Prison, and she has an in-depth understanding of sociology, reiki, craniosacral therapy and coaching.
Her journey of transformation began with knowing life was not meant to be lived in suffering. She found herself being held as prisoner of her own fears and past trauma drama. So as a life long student and a leader in self-discovery she now teaches others how to move beyond limiting beliefs supporting those that want to lead others, so that collectively we all rise together.



“Everything was perfection, your team really has the power to change people's lives, your presentation was short and concise, the food was incredible, and your group exercises and discussions exemplified the power and unlimited potential of our amazing team. Thank you for showing us the path forward and importance of emotional intelligence.”

“I have been in EO for 10 years and this forum retreat was the most inspirational/impactful as Yancy  guided us through several powerful transformational exercises that helped me better connect with  myself and my EO forum mates while being in nature. He curated our entire retreat agenda and  supported us with one of the deepest forum gatherings to date. Historically, we just have a speaker  come for an hour, but it was much better having Yancy the whole time and we all agreed it was our best forum retreat EVER!"
