The Spark Experience

The Spark Experience is a live or virtual event where empty nest women gather to explore, celebrate and connect with the woman they want to be by applying the SPARK Method that helps them rediscover passions, figure out what’s holding them back, and light a spark that gets them fired up for what’s next now that the kids are gone.

Shape Your Legacy

This is YOUR time. Life is short, so let's make the most of it by thoughtfully building our legacies together through exploration, storytelling, resources, and connection.

Keynotes that Spark Joy

I had the great fortune to attend the Spark Experience and found it invaluable! Not only was it fun, but also probing in a very useful way. The series of journaling exercises, self reflection, as well as brainstorming and sharing moments really resonated with my next goals. I would highly recommend joining these opportunities to become more inspired women.

I loved everything about the SPARK experience!  The photo shoot was amazing!  I am usually shy when it comes to pictures -- I hate to admit this but I always felt like the ugly duckling and today I felt beautiful! So thank you for giving me that feeling! Meeting such amazing women!  I felt so comfortable with them and they are truly beautiful souls. I never felt like an outcast or "trying" to connect with anyone; it was natural and organic! Most importantly, it felt like a safe environment to have open dialogue which can be a challenge or maybe not happen as fast as I felt it did when you are bringing total strangers together.

Cindy has a deep understanding of helping empty nesters. When your kids leave home, when you retire, or have a major life change at the age you weren't expecting changes. How do you move forward? SPARK gets you to peel back the layers and discover what makes you YOU! She helps you find the fun in living in the newest chapter of your life.
