We are a collaborative of individuals co-creating and inspiring ourselves and others to explore just that little bit out of our comfort zones - where the magic happens. Everyone on this page believes strongly in the power of creativity, play, improvisation, working from your strengths, honoring each other's unique gifts and personally knows the joy and massive shifts in performance that happen when you do. We have experience in almost all walks of life and work, and if we don't - we know someone who does. 

Our Team

Kirsten Gunnerud

Our Sage.

Some describe Kirsten’s ability to unleash what is special and unique about you, your team, your company as magical. She’s this unusual mix of creative and analytical and just has this knack for seeing the heart and soul of things and knowing what needs to happen so you can see it to. Before you know it, you’ve found the gift, that nugget of insight you need to fuel your fire. She views each day as a grand adventure and lives for co-creating moments of inspiration, vision, alignment, action and leap taking – driving joy, engagement, performance and ROI thru the roof. 



Jill Johnson

Our Light

If anyone can bring light to anything, it's Jill. As a child she made a decision to be joyful in life, and she's kept that promise to herself (and us!;-) She brings her unique mix of world class athlete, artist, art therapist, writer, a birth/postpartum doula and women’s rights advocate, hospice/palliative grief and loss counselor, spiritual ceremonies/rites of passage facilitator, outdoor enthusiast, and world traveler to our playground. 

Aaron Nielsen

Our Coach


Aaron is one of those people who attracts amazing wherever he goes because he brings amazing wherever he goes. This man doesn't hold back on playing things forward. Start a baseball bat company? Why not? Use that company to do amazing good in the world? Of course. Teach people of all ages the value of play in their lives, their work, their community, their everything? A no brainer. Bring the pure joy of baseball back to the sport? Yep, he's doing it. 

Maggie Harris

Our StrongWoman

Maggie is a master of strengths - as in Gallup StrengthsFinder. A talented maximizer, she thrives in uncovering and leveraging the unique strengths of individuals, families and teams so they can reach new heights. Maggie's unique gift is the positivity and harmony she brings to her work and Strengths-Based Leadership. She has a knack for finding the magic that's there and guiding the way to your discovery of it so you can start living into your full potential - harmoniously.  

Lauren Clark Angerosa

Our Adventurer


Lauren is one of those essentials you want with you on any adventure – our version of Bear Grylis. You just know you’re in good hands when she’s around because you are. Her ability to guide people thru the process with kindness, creativity and joy, along with this very clear, direct strength and sense of direction, is something to behold.  It’s no wonder that one of her passions is outdoor adventure and wilderness therapy - she’s a master at navigating the space beyond our comfort zones. 

Bjorn Gunnerud

Our Hero


Even when aliens invade, Bjorn is always there with just the right words to lighten the mood, and a strategy for success. Bjorn's ability to inspire people is legendary. His passion is people, creating alignment around a shared vision and empowering teams that thrive on the unique superpowers of each of the individuals - sort of like the Avengers without all the drama.  With no fear of new ideas, innovation and breaking thru, an ability to disarm the most fierce competitor and a love for even the most challenging territory - like healthcare - Bjorn is our Hero. 

Kate McElroy

Our Innocent


Full of joy and a deep belief in making the most of whatever might come. It's amazing just being around Kate and that smile of hers. Her insight and intuition is incredibly powerful and transformative for all of us. 

An awesome graphic designer, she brings creativity and collaboration to all aspects of her life and encourages the same in others. 

Libby Bender

Our Explorer


Looking for adventure? Lib’s creativity and willingness to explore and see the world from new points of view is evidenced by the beautiful book she helped create, Oklahoma. Check it out - you'll see sides of Oklahoma you probably never knew existed. If anyone can find the amazing and unexpected in anything, it’s Lib. She also seems to shape shift from author to photographer to brand planner to strategist to creative director to traveler to ____... sometimes all at the same time!
