Lara was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 at the age of 30, 7 months pregnant with her second son. A woman Lara had never met, but with whom she shared a mutual friend sent her a package. Inside were beautiful scarves she wore during cancer treatment and a note saying, “You can do this.” The scarves were both practical and inspiring. And, knowing someone else had worn the scarves and faced cancer helped Lara believe she could do it too. Not long after she finished treatment, Lara went to a Young Survival Coalition Conference. She packed several scarves in hopes that she could pass them along to another woman, as had so graciously been done for her. There, Lara met Roberta and they laughed together as she showed her different ways to wear a scarf. Upon the completion of her treatment, Roberta sent the scarves back to Lara. She had since moved and one of the first friends she met was starting treatment. Lara brought over a scarf to Brooke’s house and they laughed through their tears about what it is like to lose your hair. This whole time Lara couldn’t stop thinking about the amazing journey these scarves were on.
So, Lara created Hope Scarves in 2012 as a way to capture these beautiful stories and encourage others. The program started in her spare bedroom with her toddler volunteer by her side, sending out 2-3 Hope Scarves a week. Today Hope Scarves is a bustling office of volunteers and staff, sending nearly 50 scarves a week all around the world. Hope Scarves has sent over 7,000 scarves to every state and 16 countries, to people facing over 90 different types of cancer. The oldest recipient is 92 and the youngest, 4. The Hope Scarf Collection, which changes constantly, contains over 10,000 scarves and over 500 stories.

Elise Auxier is an ICF certified, professional executive and life coach and the owner of Gulfcoast Coaching in Tampa, Florida. Elise helps her clients understand and harness the power of their energy for greater leadership effectiveness. Unlike personality assessments, the Energy Leadership Index (ELI) is a behavioral assessment which illuminates how current perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors either enhance ability to lead or detract from it. It measures how people really “show up” in life on a day when things are going pretty good and when they are under stress. The ELI uncovers 7 distinct levels of energy which we all cycle through on a daily basis. None of these energy levels are inherently good or bad unless we become stuck in one, unaware of our ability to choose something different. Understanding that we possess the power to choose our energy and find opportunity in every situation is a life-changing awareness. This is exactly the window that the ELI allows us to look through. For more than 30 years Elise has helped men and women expand their clarity, personal power and confidence. She partners with her clients to help them experience more of the life they really want. Together they illuminate what might be possible and turn it into the achievable. Elise coaches professional people who are hungry for higher performance, deeper engagement and more personal satisfaction and joy in their lives. People who feel both overwhelmed and underwhelmed by their lives and know that there has got to be more than this. The Energy Leadership Index illuminates the path for a new level of awareness and consciousness about what is truly possible in life.

She followed her dream to become a pilot and graduated from a world-renowned aeronautical university in Arizona. Mariko returned to Alaska and began giving tours around Mount McKinley. When she reconnected with her childhood friend, who eventually became her husband, and got married and pregnant in short order she decided that maybe being a bush pilot wasn’t the best career path.
