These times have certainly shed light on what's important, what our priorities are, what we are grateful for, and who our tribe really is. This episode is a fun and uplifting chat with two wise women, Grace Ragan and Hope Kleist, who behind the scenes are beautifying and inspiring my business as well as several others. Coming from two different generational experiences in navigating this time of pandemic, while working, going to school, raising a young child, and showing up every day while "leaning into" the opportunities that this time has offered, the wisdom shared in our chat is palpable, real, and relevant.  

I am excited to introduce these two women to you, our listeners, and it feels like a perfect launching pad for this new year to come! 


Hope KleistHope Kleist is a born-and-raised Wisconsinite who moved to Colorado in the summer of 2013. She is a professional artist/maker based out of Fort Collins, with over a decade’s experience in graphic design, illustration, and photography. She loves working with small businesses to develop and build their visual brands with warm personalities and eye-catching elements.

Hope is also a mother and wife whose heart is fueled by slow family living, community, and nourishment. For her, nothing is better than savoring quality time to cook a homemade meal from wholesome ingredients and serving it to the ones you love — providing a space for connection and conversation has always been a passion.
