The theme for this year's event, "Lettuce Unite," was created with three things in mind:

  • a place to unite, or physically bring women together to experience connection.

  • a need to develop a deeper understanding in how the body is energetically connected.

  • a need to demonstrate how biological systems connect; i.e. the gut and brain and the gut and the state of your immunity.

  • just because we think "Lettuce Unite" is a really cool theme (and we hope you do too)!

So join us as each presenter speaks to "unity" in their area of expertise!

Amanda Liptak

Hey there, it's Amanda, owner of Nutrient Rich Life! I started the EmpowerHER Event 3 years ago as a way to connect and empower women to take more time for themselves. My goal was to provide a safe space for self growth and nourishment, without distractions, responsibilities or things like laundry!  When I saw the faces and heard the feedback of those that attended the first year, I knew that I had to bring EmpowHER back every year!

Inside this event, I share my expertise as a seasoned Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist and Mindset Coach of over 20 years.


As a certified aromatherapist, I regularly use essential oils in my practice to help support my client's goals and I will be sharing that with all of you this day as well! 


To read my full BIO and list of specialties, hop on over to our "Meet the Coaches" section of our site! 

Can't wait to see you in September!


Hi, all! I’m Lisa. 


I am a 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher, RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) and a birth doula. My passion is in sharing yoga and all things relating to birth and the journey of motherhood. I guide women through a more confident pregnancy, birth and motherhood journey. I focus on intentional movement, breathing techniques, intuition and connection to yourself. 



It fills my heart to share yoga with others. One of the beautiful gifts of a consistent yoga practice is that it evolves to support you exactly where you are. Lifeproof has shown me that a regular yoga practice can provide great transformation in your life. Not only did the tools and techniques I have learned through the years help with my pregnancy and birth, but they continue to be beneficial as I navigate homeschooling and motherhood.



I will be leading you in the morning yoga and stretch session. This yoga is for all levels and all ages, absolutely no experience required. In the meantime, you can learn more about me and my business at

Karin Reale

Hello - I'm Karin, daughter of Dr. Peter Gail, founder of Dandy Blend, and passionate about helping others succeed in achieving their dreams.

As a spiritual person who puts family first, my first job was helping my father plan itineraries and travel abroad for his foreign exchange classes when he was a professor. It opened my mind to how large the world is, and I believe it played a role in developing my trait as a forward-thinker. Today, I put that characteristic to work for my family and business, in continuing the legacy that my dad began to grow the Dandy Blend family through new customers and wholesalers.


When I'm not working or busy fulfilling board duties with the local chamber, I can be found spending time with my family. I spend much time in my garden, following in my father’s footsteps, by growing and foraging my own herbs to create recipes, tinctures, and seasonings with them.


I cannot wait to share with you the immense medicinal benefits that dandelions possess, as well as ways to incorporate Dandy Blend into a healthy diet.  

Cristina Vomero

Hi there - I'm Cristina, health and energy expert! I've spent nearly my entire 20 year career as an Emergency Medicine Physician's Assistant in the University Hospital System. 

My love for wellness eventually led me to 

become certified in Reiki and Donna Eden Energy Medicine for the holistic benefits. I completed a rigorous certification course in Functional Medicine through IFM to be able to get to root cause of chronic issues hopefully years before they manifest as active disease. 

Dedicated to the treatment and care of others, I cannot wait to share with you how energy impacts your immune system and ways to create a body that's more resilient to stress!

Victoria Hess

Hey - I'm Victoria! I hold numerous wellness certifications, including Reiki Master, Certified Yoga Teacher, Pioneer Akasha Yoga Teacher and Sound Bowl Therapy Practitioner.

After many years exploring I found the connection I was seeking on my yoga mat, energy with Reiki and through the ethers of Akashic records. While I will always consider myself a student first, today I find myself not only living this spiritual life, but also teaching it.  


I'm a proud SHINE franchise partner, where I offer classes based on energy and vibration, as well as Reiki Certification classes. I also own and operate my own company dedicated to bringing wellness and yoga classes to the community in Stark County and surrounding areas. 


I will be sharing my talents in sound bowl therapy with all of you and cannot wait for you to experience all of the benefits.
