Monique’s goals for her brand session in Washington D.C.

Monique’s long term goals include adding courses & retreats to her lineup. We held her brand session during a retreat with other creatives in her inner circle. She wanted to highlight the different activities that she has her students go through during a class and in-person retreat. We captured group sessions and individual coaching sessions during our time together.
