Sierra J. Sullivan
Passion Coach, Marketing Maven, Feminine Power Expert & Circle Facilitator
Sierra is most well known for her role as founder and publisher of The RAY magazine which was once Southern Californiaâ€™s fastest growing lifestyle magazine empowering women towards positive living and healthy body image.
Sierra spent nine years growing the magazine from tiny little e-zine with only 30 subscribers to an 84-page full color, glossy magazine that reached over 81,000 readers per issue. During that process she established The RAY as a â€œlifestyle brandâ€ by offering readers empowerment seminars, creativity workshops, passion coaching services, and a live community of women and resources in which to connect with.
Her passion has always been to gather women in a meaningful setting to support the re-emergence of the feminine. In 2010, she closed the doors to the magazine to pursue a more grassroots “in the field” approach to her work with women and has shifted the focus of her brand to it’s namesake- The Real Authentic You Movement.
This decision called her back to the East coast and since her recent relocation to Saratoga Springs, NY she has created a plethora of women centric events, workshops and gatherings which include the successful creation of the 1st annual Saratoga Women’s Fest, a city-wide celebration attended by more than 300 women over three full weeks in March 2011.
Since Women’s Fest Sierra has put her focus into opening a coaching center in downtown Saratoga Springs called the Life Stylized Success Center with her husband Rono and their business partners/ coaching colleagues, Karen & Kevin Carey where they have begun to host a plethora of life changing and transformational workshops and events for people seeking more satisfaction and success in life and business.
Born into a family immersed in politics and community building Sierra learned a multitude about event management, public speaking and creating community coalition at a grassroots level through participating and helping her parents, from a very young age.
Sierra has extensive media expertise from her 12 + years working as a freelance production manager and art department coordinator for television commercials and music videos. She graduated in 1997 with a B.S in Cinema Arts from the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College. She holds a minor in writing, philosophy and outdoor recreation studies.
