Elika unknowingly started her path to health and wellness in 2007 and is now a life coach and mentor. As a teenager and young adult, she struggled to find her own way to authenticity and she's personally experienced the ups and downs of not living in one's own truth.
With a background in social work, school counseling and non-profit community programming, in addition to her experience in integrative wellness practices like yoga, Reiki + jiu jitsu, Elika brings a unique perspective and approach to her style of coaching and support.
Elika makes it a point to meet her clients where they're at and bring fun, easy-going energy to what tends to be a dreaded process.

Rose Gabler is an author, speaker, and creativity coach.
Growing up in a family of artists, she felt pressured to be artistically expressive but didn't know how to connect her innate creative strengths with her desired business goals.
She began a lifelong journey trying to bridge this gap and faced many challenges in discovering a solid link. After acquiring her master's degree in Business of Arts and Culture, traveling the world for three years, and interviewing hundreds of people in various industries about creativity, she discovered that there were five universal contributing factors that empower our ability to be creative and to utilize it as a skill. She was recently named one of the Top 20 Female Entrepreneurs to Look For in 2021 and her newest book The Creativity Gene achieved best seller status in the first day. Now, she lives in Chicago with her husband and two golden doodles, working with entrepreneurs, artists, and individuals to hone their creative strengths and align them with personal and professional goals to achieve success.
