About Tisha




But she did look back and I love her for that because it was so human.

~ Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Hello, I’m Tisha.

I was born in a sleepy Indiana town to the local grocer and a teacher.  We had Friday nights at home and Saturday afternoons at my Grandma’s table.  I majored in philosophy and psychology, which just about explains everything.  I’ve traveled from the fjords of Norway to a blue lagoon in Belize and a hundred places in between.  They have all shaped me.

When I was eleven, I wanted to be a ballerina.  Or a writer for Sassy magazine.  Instead, I forged a path as an advocate and coach in the violence prevention field.  I have written grants and sat in courtrooms and listened to hundreds tell their connection to power based personal violence.  These are the stories I carry and the words that fuel me always.

I have been a coach for 12 years and self-employed for nine.  In that time I have worked with more than 300 clients and taught in more than 25 states.  It all started with a classified ad, an extra bedroom in my cousin’s apartment and a mixed tape filled with Ani DiFranco, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Alanis Morissette.

We all have two lives.  The second one starts when we realize we only have one.

~ Tom Hiddleston

Today, I am an advocate for soul songs and reinvention and that second life that Tom Hiddleston speaks about.  For weekends in Malibu and fireside magic and outlaw letters.  I still work with free spirits and brave hearts and change makers.  And I believe all of our stories and wanderlust dreams mean everything.
