Rev. Megan Cochran

I come from the land of hotdish and snow piles much taller than me commonly known as Minnesota. After graduating from Macalester College with a joint degree in Psychology and Religious Studies, I spent a year in Cameroon, Africa doing counseling with people living with HIV/AIDS. When I got back from Cameroon, I loaded up my car and drove to Chicago to begin the Master of Divinity program at McCormick Theological Seminary where I got my degree and met my husband, Alex.

I started my coaching and consulting business here in San Diego in 2018. With a background in leadership training and personal and professional development, it made sense to start coaching. I have always been interested in human behavior and mental processes, so I decided to build a career where I can help people to live better lives. I am originally from Brazil and emigrated to the United States in 2014. Read more>>

Basically, it comes down to wanting to save friends and family as much money as possible. I’ve been a Realtor/Broker for 20+ years and grew fed up with commission rates, so I made a change. We charge a small flat fee and provide every bit if not more service a traditional real estate agent would. On average, we save our clients upwards of $20,000 per transaction. Read more>>

I wanted to connect with people I was feeding in the Restaurant business on a more personal/intimate level! That’s when I decided I wanted to be a Private Chef. The atmosphere of cooking for a private party with Menus and meals I designed and cooked myself versus cooking the same thing every day for people I never got to see working in a Restaurant!

I grew up in East San Diego with two generous, loving parents. Through the years, I taught myself how to cope with this beautiful but wild world and everything life had to offer. I created habits that helped me stay regulated through pain amongst the unknown and unstableness of my home life. Later, during my early adult years (18-22), I slowly started to figure out that the habits I had used to cope with life when I was young, were no longer appropriate. Read more>>

I moved to Los Angeles from San Diego in 2008. I found the band soon after on craigslist and we were off and running. After 10 years in Los Angeles I moved back to San Diego and now we base the band here in my favorite city in the US. Read more>>

Tauli Anderson

I am born and raised in Las Vegas and have had a passion for journalism since I was eight years old. I was lucky enough that my parents knew the assignment editor at the local NBC affiliate in Vegas and I was able to visit the station and learn all the in’s and out’s. Pretty weird to think back that at eight years old, I was able to visit the station and see what the reporters and anchors did on the daily. Read more>>

Jennessa Hamilton and Ian Gonnella

I was somewhat of a nomad. Born in San Diego, but over the years, I moved and lived in four other states. The one constant that stayed with me was an active lifestyle. Between playing volleyball and soccer or chasing the next waterfall on weekend hiking trips with my family, no matter where I lived my body stayed in motion. Read more>>
