Who We Are

Our story began when our founder wanted to answer a fundamental question – what kind of legacy do I want to leave?  And if it could only be one thing – what would it be?  The answer: Love.

So, where do you start when it comes to delivering a message of love?  It came down to building and fostering an environment where individuals could share who they were in a vulnerable, authentic place without judgment.  The idea was to be able to have people hear the "other" side in a heartfelt and meaningful way.  The foundation of this message has led people to connect and understand each other on a human level — a vital step to fulfilling our mission where love wins.
