Hello! I’m Kelli! I’m a Widow Wellness Coach! I received my certificate in Whole Person Coaching, which is completely in line with my belief system. I believe you must pay attention to the whole body: mind, body and soul, to achieve optimal wellness. I practice this in my own life, and am passionate about educating women to encourage their own healing.
I lost my husband to cancer in 2010 and it rocked my foundation. I became a widow at the ripe young age of 40! And, of course, my life has never been the same since. I have suffered deep grief, and have also learned steps to healing. I learned how to take care of my mind, body and soul. I learned how nutrition, fitness and being kind to myself, helped my grieving process and promoted my healing.
I also went to work for hospice, for 5 years, and this took my understanding and knowledge to an entirely different level. My education consisted of daily visits with beautiful patients and families, sharing a most vulnerable part of their life with me. Our stories were different, but our journeys were similar. And, because of this experience, and my own personal losses, I can confidently say I am an expert in grief, loss, and the healing thereafter!
This I know for sure, we only have one life, and it can be taken from us at any given moment. There is so much out there, to do, to see, and to be! There is so much life to live. And I also know LIFE CAN BE AMAZING AGAIN!!
After the dust has settled, and you are ready to be more than “just ok,” let me walk with you as you become the most fabulous, amazing, woman you were created to be! Let me walk beside you as you find your ground, and your amazing bad ass self, and step into the life you dream of, and absolutely deserve.
YOLO baby! Lets do this!!

Casey Tabolt is a WPCC certified coach specializing in helping moms rediscover and honor all the parts of themselves in order to take better care of themselves and live more intentional and fulfilling lives.
Casey is a wife and mother of 2, who has been a work from home entrepreneur since 2015. It was in the midst of running her Etsy shop and taking care of a newborn and toddler that she was came face to face with how unsustainable her life had become. She was diagnosed with a severe autoimmune disease that put her in the hospital for 3 months, fighting for her life. She attributes her miraculous recovery to the choice she made to find meaning and purpose in her suffering, her willfulness, and last but not least, her love for her children.
It was through this experience that Casey learned how to reconnect with herself and started rebuilding her life intentionally by honoring her values. She started to debunk the myths of self care that had kept her from taking care of herself in any meaningful way. She adopted a new mindset and felt immense gratitude and appreciation for her new life and the lessons she had learned. She committed herself to personal growth, and took the steps necessary to share her knowledge and be of service to moms who feel invisible in their lives. Casey is passionate about helping moms reconnect to their inner voice; honor their strengths, hopes and dreams; and make self care the feel good habit it needs to be.
Today she spends her time seeking joy, homeschooling and peaceful parenting her kids and supporting moms as they make themselves a priority, follow their dreams and honor their whole selves so they can show up as the best mom possible.
She deeply values service and growth and can help you rediscover your path and yourself all while becoming the mom you were meant to be. She knows the struggles of overcoming our pasts, learning how to develop our own unique parenting philosophies, and maintaining our individuality in the face of motherhood. There is no destination for this journey but we can certainly enjoy the landmarks we reach and celebrate the ground we’ve covered.
She believes in the power of coaching and the truth that you are more than “just a mom.” You deserve to live your best life and set that example for the next generation.
I help those who are mired in the undercurrent of sadness and confusion to rebuild, realign and repurpose their lives by consciously utilizing the Power of Intention, leading to a higher state of wellbeing – mind, body and soul.
This is your life. Your story. The journey to your destiny.
I invite you to take a moment and reflect on where you find yourself in this season of life. Are you satisfied? Living your destiny? Unapologetically embracing all of who you are? Or… Do you feel lost? Frustrated? Confused as to who you are and what you stand for? Limited by your career? Stuck in achieving your goals? Paralyzed or overwhelmed with what’s next in your journey?
If these questions resonate with you, I encourage you to give yourself the opportunity to envision a different story, one where you:
Embrace all of who God created you to be
Experience the freedom of being truly connected
Discover your own voice and the power it holds in the world
Generate changes in your life to support your personal and professional goals
Step boldly into your life’s purpose
How does that story sound?
You only have one life to live. Your destiny awaits you. So, are you ready to break through the frustrations in your life and the limitations in your career?
My name is Eva Cruz Pena and I’m a destiny designer for brave Latinas who are ready to reclaim their power, step boldly into their purpose, and voice their truth from a grounded identity in God.
My 15 years of education and training in nursing, theology, military chaplaincy and mental health, along with my life’s experiences (a few of the big ones are: moving to a different country to pursue my career, navigating the intricacies of being a Latina, balancing being a woman, wife, mother, friend, entrepreneur and artist) allow me to understand the dynamics of the human nature; therefore allowing me to coach from a holistic perspective.
My mission to thrive with passion, compassion, humor and style is evident in my approach as a coach:
I am passionate about empowering women to live grounded in their identity, fully connected to all parts of their being and using their voices to step boldly into their destiny enacting positive change in themselves and their environment.
My compassion shows through as I create a safe space that allows clients to look at areas of their lives that they want to change, enhance or awaken.
I believe humor is key to having a joy-filled heart, therefore; I work with my clients in finding ways to stay positive and enjoy the little things in life that bring joy and make souls smile.
My style is unique to my personality: caring, empathic, brave, vivacious, fun, creative, beautiful, grounded, strong, intuitive, passionate, spiritual, and unapologetic. It shows in the coaching relationship as I actively listen for the client’s strengths and reflect them back in order to create the awareness for the client to realize she has all the essential tools to succeed and self-innovate.
So, what are you waiting for? Any of what I’ve mentioned above speaks to you? Schedule your free 30 minute consultation via phone, Skype/FaceTime or in person if you are in Portland, OR.
I am available Tuesdays- Fridays from 10:00- 2:00pm (PST). If those times and days don’t work – contact me and I’ll do my best to accommodate your schedule.

I feel like my lived experience, professional experience and educational mastery really has prepared me to walk alongside you as an executive coach.
