Meet Our
(C)hief (E)xecutive (O)ptimist


I genuinely, like really, really love people.


Growing up in St. Louis, MO with a big, blended, loving family shaped me into the woman I am today. My spirit glows, love flows, & lifting others up is a must. My Mom instilled compassion in me & my Dad reminded me I could do anything. Seeing examples of trust, patience, and generosity with others placed an optimistic lens over my eyes that forever changed me. Finally, my abundant energy met my purpose.

I found my life's work.

I created Optimistic Theory in my mid 20's. My bubbly, hopeful demeanor abruptly met the realness of the world. I was told my smile wouldn't last. That made me curious. My question became: "Can I remain optimistic as an adult?" I was frustrated with being told adulthood meant growing towards grumpiness. "Do I have to accept this as life?"


I had to do something.

Optimistic Theory is passionate about creating fun, freeing experiences for today's modern and busy adult. In an "always on" culture, we know it's daunting to "turn off". The good news is we can do something fun about it: learn how to rest. Studies show that being with your team, support system, or squad is an effective way to manage stress. Over the past few years, I have helped hundreds of people PAUSE, learn resting skills, and feel a sense of relief with in person and virtual group silent experiences. 


We want to make rest active.


With expertly crafted & curated mobile silent experiences, refreshing retreats, engaging trainings, and creative coaching & consulting services, you have a new place to actively practice rest. We want you to retreat where you are. What a place to start. ;)


Our theory is that our lives are worth it.

We reject anything else. 

Meet us at the intersection of celebration and relaxation.

We've got room for you. ;)
