Lisa has been creative all her life. Growing up, she was the weird kid making up songs on her ways to school, dressing up her dog in handmade finery, and lapsing into strange accents in the middle of conversations. She was the one you could always turn to for advice when you needed a clever approach to a school project. And when your life was too much to handle, she would sit with you, and just listen. Today you can still find Lisa singing and dancing, writing, and helping others find their creative way. She has a diverse background in environmental planning, environmental education, gemology, performance, motivation, and jewelry design. She has taught outdoor education, jewelry history, jewelry making, children's programs, and vocal training.

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.
