She excelled at CU and financed more than half of her tuition with scholarships.  While at CU she was inducted into Mortarboard National Senior Honor Society and Phi Beta Kappa.

After obtaining her BA, Amy went on to law school and received her Juris Doctor degree, in 1992, from Boston College Law School, a top tier law school. She has been practicing in the area of criminal law in Boulder, Colorado since that time. In 1993 Amy joined the Boulder County District Attorney Office as a Deputy District Attorney. During her eighteen years as a criminal prosecutor, she worked under three different elected District Attorneys.  She rose to become a Chief Deputy District Attorney, mentoring other attorneys and assisting in the management of the office. Along the way, Amy litigated all kinds of cases, from misdemeanor and driving offenses, such as Driving under the Influence, to First Degree Murder, Sexual Assault, Kidnapping and everything in between.  She single handedly took to trial and won the only Methamphetamine Manufacture case ever tried in Boulder County.

Amy is a highly experienced litigator. She is equally comfortable both inside of and outside of the courtroom.  Amy is known by her colleagues as tough, tenacious, aggressive when appropriate, and highly compassionate. Amy is actively involved in her community. She was on the Board of Directors of Partners Mentoring Youth of Boulder, Broomfield, and Southwest Weld County for almost four years. During her last two years she was the Chair of the Board of Directors. Amy also serves on the Board of Directors for her homeowners association.

Bonnie Serratore with Spiritual Acceleration

Master Tracker Bonnie Serratore has expertly charted the unseen territories of our emotional and energetic bodies. She is a Spiritual Accelerator, meaning she helps people accelerate (or speed up) their personal healing, growth, and spiritual development. Bonnie accelerates the liberation of our authentic, true, and divine self. Bonnie does so by removing and clearing all unwanted foreign energy from all time and space. These interfere with the expression of our divine self.

Everything Bonnie Serratore knows she has learned through direct experience in her own life as well as from working with her clients and students. Although she was born with these abilities, she has developed her intimate connection with her self and the light through her profound personal experiences. She lived alone in the desert’s of Nevada for four years speaking to almost no one. There she expanded her skills and burned through much of her own interference and ego. She has taken personal trips where she studied the energy of the pyramids of Egypt, and the sacred sites throughout Israel. In these experiences, she cultivated deeper and deeper connections with source by realizing the true nature of her own divinity. Bonnie’s work has lead to the start of the White Raven Institute and many other spiritual centers throughout the west coast of the United States.

Spiritual Acceleration is the culmination of everything Bonnie has discovered and the realms of consciousness that she has expertly explored. She is on the leading edge of the Spiritual Acceleration movement – a global community of people dedicated to their own personal liberation and supporting others that are on the same journey.


Jen Lauer with Agape Energy Healing  

Jen was drawn to energy bodywork through her own journey to find a balance of joy, health, and vitality in her life. After experiencing a series of health related issues and having limited success with more traditional medical treatments, she turned to alternative therapies. In holistic health practices she found more consistent health without the extreme side effects. An advantage she also found with holistic health care was the wide spread effect of balance and harmony that spread throughout all aspects of her life.

Jen was originally trained as a massage therapist at Boulder College of Massage Therapy. She is currently registered as an Associate Polarity Practitioner through the American Polairty Therapy Association. Jen has also studied Contemplative Psychology at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado and Polarity Therapy and Biodynamic Cransiosacral Therapy at The Colorado School of Energy Studies

Along with energy work, Jen works with professional life coaches, hosting and speaking at lifestyle retreats and workshops. She is an ordained minister through the Universal Life Church and finds it incredibly rewarding to be able to witness her client’s journeys of reconnection with their inherent health and wisdom. She balances life by spending time in nature, writing, collaging, doing photography, enjoying multiple contemplative practices including meditation and restorative yoga.

Trixie Phelps with Moxie Breeze  

Trixie Phelps is the CEO and Founder of Moxie Breeze LLC where she serves the light as a Spiritual Liaison, Shamanic Practitioner and Reiki Master. She is grateful to have been taught by four spiritual teachers in her lifetime. She began her journey in 2008 with a shaman who was Sioux Lakota trained. She has since studied extensively with a reiki master, and palmistry leader. After completing her studies through these teachers, she sent out a prayer for a new spiritual teacher and within 6 months she was introduced to Bonnie Serratore. She knew instantly that there was a connection. Since studying under Bonnie extreme changes have begun to take place in her life!

Trixie gracefully combines all of the skills she has learned through her journey. She accesses and removes negative energies that don’t belong, and retrieves the energy that does. She works on the core frequency level materializing immediate and tangible results while opening natural pathways in all areas of life. Trixie organizes and attends a monthly Healing Arts Faire, offers private sessions, Group Clearings, House Clearings, Palm Readings, and teaches basic Shamanic classes. She continues to lift others into their own natural brilliance with ease, empowering them to reach their highest healing potential with grace.


Zoilita GrantZoilita Grant with Mind-Set for Success and Colorado Coaching                                

Your MindSet completely controls your experience of life. Not only does it affect your choices (which create your life), it affects how you experience life. I have developed simple and very profound products and classes to create a MindSet for Success in all areas of your life. I have learned the power of hypnosis through the impact on my life and the lives of thousands of people that I have worked with over the last 30 something years. For most of my adult life I practiced psychotherapy specializing in counseling hypnotherapy. I practiced in three different states and two countries. I stopped practicing hypnotherapy in 2007. I went to school and became a coach. I love being a coach! I practice HypnoticCoaching. In 2008 the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners and International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association approved credentialing for Hypnotic-Coaching. This new profession is a natural evolution of the use of hypnosis in combination with coaching tools and techniques. Like the more traditional Coach, the Hypnotic-Coach acts as a partner with their client. I have dedicated much of my life to helping people reach their full potential and have extraordinary lives. I can now see that Hypnotic-Coaching is a perfect model to do that! I have a line of Hypnosis CDs for the public and have written and self published over twenty-seven books for Hypnosis practitioners.
