Aubrey is driven by curiosity and fueled by creativity.
She thinks Existence is a pretty neat mystery worth exploring, and is fascinated by the diversity of the human experience. She is a student for life and a student of Life, learning from adventures and encounters with interesting characters along the way. She dedicates her creativity and compassion to the empowerment of herself and her fellow human folk as they navigate through the unknown twists and turns of life.
Unknown twists in life are actually what inspired her to fiercely pursue ongoing personal transformation. In 2010, humbled by a chronic turn in health, Aubrey turned to creativity to reimagine her future, release the past, and get grounded in the present moment. She developed fun, creative ways to explore big questions, keep balance, create new routines, and establish a new vision to lead the way. Through this process, she discovered deeper levels of self-awareness, and a renewed excitement for possibilities ahead.
By embracing her obstacles as opportunities to grow, life as she knew it transformed in ways she could not have anticipated. Since 2011, has facilitated creative personal development workshops and events with folks all ages in California, Nevada, Hawaii, Chicago, and Colorado, as well as across the UK, and EU, Dubai, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

The Curiosapiens Philosophy
There are a lot of different ways to be human, and really- we're all just making things up as we go. And that's okay! Life is not a product for us to perfect. Life is a process - it is the adventure of Becoming.
With the path forged with every step taken, it is essential for modern-day explorer to have a strong sense of self-awareness and a trusty compass to navigate through uncharted territories of the human experience.
Luckily, the human experience is a collaborative one, and we learn and grow alongside other beings who are led by wonder. Together, we can expand beyond the reaches of What-was and What-is, to delight in the possibilities of What-if, and What then, and Who knows?! It's a mystery worth mastering.
The Coaching Approach
You hold the compass. I hold the map. Together we follow our curiosity and forge a path into the unknown, lifting rocks and admiring the beauty along the way. In this life-long adventure, think of me as a curious travel companion that pops in when you need support, asking questions that help you navigate, celebrating your discoveries, and offering tools and food for thought that can assist you as you navigate.
Together we will:
Unearth and understand the core needs and values that serve as your compass.
Map out goals and celebrate milestones along the way
Identify the opportunities for personal development that lie within the obstacles of life.
Ignite the creative spark that propels you forward!
Coaching sessions may be accompanied by playful prompts, creative challenges, and guided make-believe to catalyze thoughts and deepening understanding of self. This may include exercises from the fields of visual art, creative writing, drama, music, photography, dance, crafts and beyond.
Set visions for new projects
Discover channels for communication to strenghten collaboration
Support individual balance and wellbeing, strengthening the collective
Make presentations creatively engaging
Enhance the office so that it is a place you love spending time in!
Coaching is a collaborative exploration of the human experience. By providing tools, resources, challenges, accountability, and supportive outside perspective, coaches empower individuals to lead their own way in pursuit of a fulfilling, purpose-driven life that honors their deepest values.
Powerful transformation can happen through play - not just for individuals, but for communities as well.
Curiosapiens creates opportunities to enjoy some creative playtime and do-gooding tomfoolery alongside other curious folk.
