Hi, I'm Rose.

I also go by Slam!


When I launched my first business in 2009, it was entirely run on excitement and opportunity. My friends and community were cheering me on at every turn, but it was in the moments when I was all by myself where my inner critic really let me have it. For every enthusiastic customer, successful event, or new business innovation, I had double the limiting beliefs and compelling evidence for why I wasn’t qualified.

I looked for teachings on how to do it better: I studied Nonviolent Communication, I explored bookkeeping, business planning, and management styles. I worked for a variety of companies, organizations, and teams in management, sales, and direct service. I discovered that skills and systems are fundamental, but it is in the tiny and consistent practices that truly make the difference. My key to success is finding a goal worth playing for.

The lessons I have learned through coaching, mentorship, and teamwork have helped me align my focus with my inner vision. With this, I have been able to set goals, take steps, and celebrate success. I have developed practices that help me focus on what I want instead of my old and familiar insecurities. I am able to take on new projects that continue to expand my experience and expertise and support my unstoppable curiosity and drive.

"Starting anything new is a scary proposition. The clarity of knowing however, that I do not have to do it alone is comforting. Knowing that Slam! is present to be supportive, curious, creative and smiling big with joy, reminds me that I have all that in me too, and I too, can create more of it in the work that I do. In celebrating the "small sweet steps" I take with Slam! I am expanding my capacity to be with myself and with my clients, as I grow into the human I've always wanted to become."
