About the Facilitators:

Kelly Ortega is a community organizer, trauma-informed yoga teacher, nutrition specialist, professionally trained coach and creative curator. Her work is an embodiment of “self-care, earth-care, people-care, fair-share”, carrying forth the work of her ancestors and the return to indigenous lifeways.

She’s a trained Doula, workshop creator and supports the heart + emotions of the cohort.

Maja Jerkic is a professional coach, counselor, consent workshop facilitator, artist, and youth mentor. Her concentration focuses on leadership and relationship coaching--how we can empower ourselves through the interpersonal issues we might face, personally and professionally--and how we can guarantee our success with our most meaningful goals and dreams. Maja believes that great leaders demonstrate the four big “C’s”: communication, compassion, collaboration, and creativity--and that every person has an authentic way of leading in their lives. Maja creates an empowering container for your fear-based thoughts to be gently observed and your voice of wisdom to be acknowledged and acted upon. You can expect to experience joy, playfulness, clarity, and a sense of possibility as a result of working with Maja. Maja has led women's circles in both the Bay Area and Hawaii. Maja is based in San Francisco where she also enjoys hiking, playing the n’goni, urban gardening, ceramics, kayaking, and taking videos of her cat. Maja will be supporting the members of the course as a facilitator and as a coach.
