Multi-talented, sexually empowered, inspirational feminist and mother.

Karna is a natural-born leader, full of passion and charisma. She’s a teacher, reaching out and inspiring others to achieve and to do good in the world. With a natural confidence that begets influence, Karna takes a great deal of pride and joy in guiding others to be who they are and work together to shine their light on their community.

She’s a multifaceted woman with a rich personal journey which includes many trials and triumphs such as overcoming an eating disorder, sexual abuse and several debilitating betrayals. This has left her with the ability to be comfortable with the shadow side of human existence as well as finding the light, strength and humor to live every day with joy and grace – and ask whomever does not feel aligned with her values to take their vibes elsewhere.

In addition to her work as a business coach and inspirational speaker, she serves others by being an example that with hard work and surrender–self love, financial success, positive relationships, fun and curiosity, is within your reach–no matter what you’ve been though.

By teaming up with other like-hearted people and stepping into her power, sharing herself and her story freely with the world, in 5-10 years there will be an unstoppable movement of women who are allowing themselves to claim their bodies, voices and truth, unapologetically disrupting old patriarchal structures with grace and unyielding conviction.

Alchemist, business pioneer, writer, strategist, world traveler and archer.

Brandi has always been a scientist, seeking news ways of understanding the world and engaging its mysteries, so in some ways, it’s natural that she ended up in technology.

Her journey has been a winding one, guided by her heart, starting with a Bachelor’s in Theatre from New York University, with minors in Physics and Mathematics. From there she pursued a second Bachelor’s degree at Rutgers University in Physics, Philosophy and Religion, trying to understand the world from a variety of perspectives before attending graduate school at UC San Diego where she studied Philosophy of Science and Science Studies.

She loves books, ideas and possibilities, but escapes any box you try to put her in. After leaving San Diego, she parlayed her love of blogging into a job as a freelance developer, eventually growing her company Alchemy + Aim to a dozen awesome teammates scattered across the globe.

A quiet yet powerful leader, Brandi has always sought to find new ways to co-create with collaborators and clients, and to connect people with each other and help them dream bigger, by combining insightful questioning with strategic planning. Her path has informed her work deeply and she seamlessly moves from left brain to right brain, creating an integrated experience for anyone whose life she touches – almost like magic.

A visionary at heart, Brandi sees her work inspiring a new conversation around how to live in your truth, radiating your light onto the world unabashedly and with deep impact.
