Best of 2014 - Recap

2014 Was A Really, Really Good Year

Roar Retreat Recap - Costa Rica Travel

Roar Retreat Recap

The idea for ROAR was hatched by two clients over a year ago, because Andrea Fellman and Nadia Carriere loved how the best ideas happen in the halls between sessions. Their dream came to fruition last month when around 35 women traveled out of the country for intimate networking in a gorgeous location, the Westin Playa Conchal. Personally, I vote for every conference to be held at all-inclusive resorts from now on, forever and ever, amen.

#ROAR14 In Costa Rica

Note: Several parts of my Roar Retreat conference have been sponsored, or arranged by the conference's organizers. All words are mine.
I have wanted to visit Costa Rica forever. My best friend Danielle has been many times; her stories and photos just BLOW MY MIND. When friend, client and colleague Andrea Fellman moved there about a year ago, I knew at some point I would figure out a way to visit her. Luckily she and Nadia Carriere made it simple for me when they created Roar Retreat. I was thrilled to do the design and web work for the project, and of course, attend. The time has flown since we started working on all this nearly a year ago -  I leave for Costa Rica tomorrow.
