Sarah Anassori

Sarah Anassori is a Career Transformation & Women's Leadership Coach on a mission to guide the next generation of heart-centered leaders to step into the work [and way of working] they were made for. She seamlessly unites her years of traditional business experience growing multi-million dollar brands as a Marketing Manager at Johnson & Johnson with her passion for mindfulness and meditation, personal growth, and authentic leadership to bring a unique blend of strategy and spirituality to the field of coaching.  Sarah’s soulful and profoundly practical guidance aims not to just inspire people to step into their leadership,
but to truly equip them to live and create from a deeply empowered state. Her clients have launched new companies, exited toxic work environments, negotiated significant raises and promotions, entered into crucial conversations with company leadership, and landed dream jobs. Most importantly, they reclaim what they always knew on some quiet, but deep level - “I am worthy and deserving of my success and I trust myself to be bold with my life and my work.”


Kala Maxym

Kala Maxym is a professional opera singer turned entrepreneur on a mission to help people bring their five senses into purposeful harmony by creating a tasting experience that unites all the most delicious things in life: live music, wine, cheese, & chocolate. Her diverse professional background includes working as a Senior Program Analyst with the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, as a gemologist, singing opera roles, recitals, and concerts (including at the London Inaugural Ball for President Barack Obama and for Chilean Presidents Piñera and Bachelet), and working for a busy tech start-up in the localization space. That’s all until she realized none of this was what she truly wanted to do with her life! So… she quit her “real” job and moved to LA all in the same week just over two years ago and is now dedicated full­time to her company, Five Senses Tastings and its cocktail branch, Song & Tonic. She holds a Master’s Degree in Opera Performance, holds the California Wine Appellation Specialist title, and is WSET Level II Certified with Distinction. Kala is a former bone marrow donor.
