It's a New Year!

2014 was a unique year for Cairn Guidance. It was the first complete year of work after the Director's bicycle trip across the United States the summer of 2013. Jess came back rejuvenated and ready to continue building a business she launched in 2006. After taking 6 months off and minimally sustaining the work, she dove back into it in 2014 and Cairn Guidance had a great year!


We worked with 18 clients, 11 of them new clients, gave 4 keynote addresses and worked with 6 consultants in sub-contractor roles. We hired Charisse Poynter, a part-time executive assistant who supports Jess' role as the Director of Cairn. We have met with many clients and partners to build and sustain relationships for the work we are so passionate about. Jess continues to support RMC Health as a Board of Director the national non-profit based in Colorado.

Our goals for 2015 are lofty! We hope to double the amount of clients we work with, resulting in reaching and impacting more youth, adults and healthy change. We pledge to advocate more and partner more with others aligned to our mission. We work out of a co-work office, called (c) space in Louisville and we understand that many times effective partnerships emerge organically from building relationships in the same environment. We are proud to share a space with Goodwill Industries of Kentucky, Ushahidi, Kentucky Environmental Foundation, Kentucky Voices for Health and The Fund for Transforming Education in Kentucky.  

We hope you have a happy, healthy, extraordinary 2015 and we hope to work with you to build healthier schools and communities!
