She has explored a number of creative pursuits, from writing fiction to acting to singing.

Sarah Sadie, MFA
I am a certified Kaizen-Muse creativity coach, a poet with five books to my name, and a Qoya dance instructor-in-training. I work with writers and other creatives who are experiencing blocks or blahs. I also specialize in helping people recover their zest for life by reconnecting to a creative side of themselves they’ve let go over the years. En-couraging my clients to discover their next adventure and say YES is my passion.

I founded Odonata Creative as a place that feels safe and full of wonder and fun. Odonata is the Latin term for dragonflies, insects "known for their wings but named for their teeth." ("Find Your Fierce" is one of our catchphrases around here.) The dragonfly is a nearly universal cultural symbol of transformation. Plus, their wings are glittery and their bodies are bright colors. And they eat mosquitoes.

Every once in a while I send out xoS to my readers and followers, a little window onto else and other, with sugared violets and a whisper of magic. And I’m always interested in hearing from you. Drop me a line at sarahsadie@atodonata.com or find me online.

Christina Barsi: Certified Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, Interdisciplinary Artist (writer, actor, filmmaker, crafter, & anything else that serves the muse)

I wanted to give myself permission to live exactly the way I want, deserve and know I’m meant to live. That’s why I became a coach. We are meant to be fulfilled so that we can also fulfill others. Energy begets energy, it’s mere physics! 

I work with creative people who like to take risks, set goals and pave their own path. Whose not afraid of being themselves and living their truth. It might be in business or in creative expression or wait…can it be both?! Yes, you can see the interrelation between the two and recognize the importance of both. You want both but you also want to feel substance and deep connection in all that you do. That can get overwhelming. You don’t have to be a super-human to accomplish all you want! And you don’t have to sacrifice your joy or your core values to follow your path. All you need are a few tools and some support to keep building that foundation that will keep you in your process. And it IS a process.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Dawn CuperoDawn Cupero
Certified Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, Infinite Possibilities Certified Trainer, Certified Muse Group Facilitator, Your Tour Guide

I Graduated from Bryant University with a BS in Business and Marketing. I spent many years chasing after the all mighty dollar selling computer related hardware and software. Finally, I got off that train at a stop called "WTH! Where the heck am I and what am I doing with my life? I sat around that town for a bit, meeting lots of good people: Louis Hay, Wayne Dyer, Jerry and Esther Hicks, Norman Vincent Peale, and Jack Canfield. They all had a very similar message: "Keep moving, keep learning and keep looking within to find your true bliss."

I took lots of side trips, definitely went down some paths less traveled, experienced some detours and even some road blocks. I'd pick up travel companions along the way that helped keep the path well illuminated; people like Brene Brown, Micheal Newton, Neale Donald Walsch, and Rhonda Byrne.

I am happy to report that I have finally settled down and am exactly where I need to be right now. I LOVE connecting with like-minded people, sharing our experiences of life and love, and watching our creative spirits soar!

I currently reside in Cary, NC with my husband, Don. I have two daughters who live in Nashville and Boston.

Judith HarveyJudith Harvey
Certified Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach

After a 25-year career in public education as a teacher, principal, superintendent and leadership coach, Judith decided it was time to take her many creative interests and translate them into a creativity coaching certificate. Her Kaizen-Muse 'training' was personally enlightening, as well as an opportunity to learn SO much about the creative personality/spirit. In the midst of trying to sort out how to take these skills forward, she made the decision to re-enter public education administration. At this point in time, she is using both her leadership coaching and creativity coaching certificates in her role as Assistant Superintendent working with district administrators, as well as K-12 teachers. She is looking forward to the day when private practice might become a reality! At this point, though, life is good!
