Nathalie Tovell | Coach

"Nathalie Tovell lives just outside Ottawa, Canada with her husband and two sons.  She loves nature and immerses herself in it as often as she can.  She expresses her creative side through photography and art where she captures the messages, simplicity, and beauty found in nature.  

She has been a successful entrepreneur for over 20 years and calls herself a lifetime learner as she loves to question, explore, and observe the world around her. She has a degree in Pure and Applied sciences from St. Lawrence College in Quebec City and a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Ottawa.

As she and her husband were raising their two sons, she became interested in the power of nutrition and completed a certification in Holistic Nutrition. At this same time, she was introduced to essential oils and was fascinated by the power of plants and nature in supporting physical and mental well being. She has attended numerous trainings in this field and continues to research and learn about this topic.

Nathalie observed that although people could be leading so-called “healthy” lives, many were still not thriving and experiencing joy. They were “surviving” through their day to day life. She also observed through her own experience that accumulating all the knowledge was the easy part. Applying it was a completely different mindset. She found herself continuing with the habits that she wanted to change just because they were familiar to her. She felt stuck. Why was that? This led her to learn more about mindset, limiting beliefs, and the power behind Emotional Intelligence. She is now a Certified Emotions Mentor® Coach.

Nathalie offers group and one-on-one mentoring, retreat days and community workshops.  She incorporates a variety of modalities and tools in all that she does.  Her passion is to create a safe, loving and non-judgemental space to assist others in finding peace from their past, be seen for who they really are without all the “stories” their minds created, understand the message behind their emotions, and move forward with joy and enthusiasm on the paths that life will lead them on. 
Tim Patterson | Coach

Tim Patterson is a successful Sales and Business Professional with a BS in Accounting from Virginia Tech and numerous business and professional certifications. Tim became interested in Emotional Intelligence several years ago after suffering a tremendous personal and professional setback. It was during this same time period that Essential Oils became core to his daily being. During his life rebuilding, he surmised applying more work effort than before to rebound was not the right path, but learning to do more with what he already had at his disposal was the correct conclusion. Specifically, raising his self awareness so as to be present, happy and in the specific moment. Tim enjoys teaching and is passionate about sharing the message with others about how raising one’s self awareness can raise the quality of their relationships, personal well-being and general happiness overall.

Lisa Bergman MBA | Coach

Lisa Bergman lives in Northern VA as a happy wife and mother of four.  She earned a Bachelor's Degree in Behavioral Science and Health and a Masters in Business from the University of Utah.  Her studies and life experiences led her to observe that the key to living a successful life in terms of happiness, financial well being and health, is not reserved for the talented, the smart or even those who seem to be born geniuses --nor is it solely a product of hard work or thrift.  She found that the incredible gift possessed by us all is the power to choose one’s way and to change one’s mind (now backed by research and often referred to as neuroplasticity of the brain).  Those who feel they live successful, charmed lives, have developed a belief, a mindset and healthy habits for success that have much more to do with emotional intelligence than any other factor.  Hence Lisa has poured her life and soul force into serving others as an Emotions Mentor® Instructor and Health Consultant to empower people to thrive. She has an innate gift to inspire others to see the beauty within so they can more fully live to their purpose and potential and live joyful, healthy successful lives.
Ashley Beans | Coach

My name is Ashley Beans, and I first became a mom in January 2012. Becoming a mom changed me. I became 'obsessed' with making sure that the things we were doing as a family were safe and natural for my little boy, Kit. I researched everything, we tossed the chemicals and toxins that are, surprisingly, everywhere and turned to a natural and holistic lifestyle. In 2014 we had Charlie, and he made me a mom again. Over the years, we've seen lots of miracles occur because of our healthy lifestyle.
