Co-Founder | Galvanize

This adventure collective takes participants outside of their comfort zone, deeper within, & leaves them feeling more connected to a network of magnificent mavens in their community with monthly micro-retreats designed specifically for Galvanizers : entrepreneurs, adventurers, + influencers living with passion + purpose, that are goaling hard after their dreams every single day.... and are tired.

Galvanize guides, Aubrey Miller, founder of Red Bud Suds, + certified yoga teacher, Gretchen Horinger provide a space for you to be fully you. Each monthly event includes an immersive outdoor activity, a movement + mindfulness practice, as well as a social gathering afterwards where the all-female collective can connect over stories of success, epic failures, food + drink.

Want to be a part of our the event or know a Galvanizer who should be in our gang? Email your nominations to:  gretchen@dogoodakron.com
