Nanci Hogan

Meet-Nanci

Kaitlyn Turner

Meet-Kaitlyn
I'm an Awaken Coach Institute Alum living in Seattle, Wa. I'm a natural hype woman and I love gathering people. My sweet spot is co-creating a sacred space for women to deepen their knowing and integrate parts of themselves they've cast out. I love coaching women around the topics of desire and sovereignty and working with clients who are in spiritual transitions.

Embodiment is central to how I engage my life and work. I love helping people get more settled in their own bone and sinew and tru…
