Deserving: Become the YOU that you were meant to be.

I am Shannon Avery Briggs, a writer, speaker, and mentor who is passionate about helping people create their ideal journey in life. Throughout my life, I've faced many challenges and obstacles that have tested my resolve, but I've always been determined to overcome them and emerge stronger and more resilient.

Growing up in a small town, I often felt like I didn't quite fit in. I struggled to find my place and often found myself on the sidelines, watching others live the life I longed for. But I refused to let my circumstances define me. Instead, I made the decision to break free from my limitations and step into the person I was meant to be - confident, courageous, and free to live the life I imagined.

My journey to healing began in 2016 when I received a diagnosis of cancer. Faced with this life-altering news, I knew that I needed to take control of my own health and well-being. I chose a personal roadmap to health that included holistic and natural methods, and with the support of my husband John, I set out to reclaim my health and vitality.

Through this journey, I discovered tools and strategies for living a healthier, cleaner life that I now refer to as the "keys to my Secret Garden." These keys helped me not only overcome cancer but also heal from deep-rooted emotional traumas that had been holding me back for years. As I gained more knowledge and education, I became passionate about sharing these tools with others so they could experience the same transformation and freedom.

I became known as The Connection Enthusiast, a Certified HeartMath Coach, and a Certified High-Performance Coach, finding surprising links that benefit health and happiness. After 25 years in the corporate world, I left to pursue my passion for helping others become healthy and emotionally vibrant. Now, I've developed an easy-to-follow system that anyone can use to unlock their potential and start enjoying life like never before.

My husband John and our three dogs are my constant companions on our adventures in life. We currently reside in Covington, WA, where I continue to develop my system and work with clients from all walks of life. Whether it's through my writing, speaking engagements, or mentoring, I am committed to helping others discover their connections and build their personal Secret Garden.

If you're ready to start living the life you've always dreamed of, then schedule an appointment with me today. Let me be your guide on this journey towards your ideal life! Together, we can unlock your full potential and discover surprising connections that lead to happiness and fulfillment.

In the journey of recovery, every day is a chance to rewrite your story and redefine your future.

I am John Briggs, a certified high performance coach, speaker, and recovery advisor. My journey, like many of yours, has been filled with challenges, introspection, and transformative moments. As someone who has traveled the path of overcoming addiction, I know firsthand the highs and lows, the struggles, and the redemption. It's my experiences, paired with our science-based, proprietary coaching techniques that have shaped me into the person I am today - compassionate, empathetic, sincere, and driven by a profound purpose.

After 30 years of professional experience ranging from landscaping, transit operator and logistics showcasing my expertise with a Class A CDL in several areas, I found my true passion helping those on the recovery journey. 

Drawing from my own story, I have embarked on a mission as a high-performance coach to support individuals recovering from alcohol or drug addiction. It's not just about sobriety; it's about unlocking the full potential within each person, achieving high-performance in every aspect of life, and finding balance and personal growth in the process.

My unique approach combines the power of transformative tools with a deeply personalized understanding of the recovery journey. This blend ensures that each person I coach receives not just strategies for personal development but also the support and understanding that's crucial for those in recovery communities.

Words like personal development, growth, and community aren't just jargon to me. They are pillars of my coaching philosophy and the foundation of the life I've rebuilt. I am always "looking forward," eager to help others "reach their maximum potential."

When I'm not coaching, you'll find me immersed in the simple joys of life - spending time with my family, soaking in the beauty of nature, journaling, or enjoying a hearty laugh. Humor, after all, is a balm for the soul, and I believe in the power of laughter and its ability to heal.

For those of you on a similar path, seeking more from life, and needing a guide who understands, I'm here. Together, we can transcend past struggles, harness the present, and shape a future brimming with purpose and fulfillment.

Are you ready to embark on your personal development journey? Let me help light the way.
