Our Owner 


Beverly D’amico, RN,MSN, CGRS is an inspirational Speaker, Life Coach, Certified Grief Recovery Method® Counselor, and Certified F.R.E.S.H™ Awareness Coach. Beverly, was born in Michigan, the youngest of eight children. Like many, her family was also dysfunctional and as a result she did not have a good relationship with her mother and was abandoned by her father.

With her father gone, and no strong male role model, Beverly found herself pursuing relationships that reinforced abandonment. At the age of 25 she pursued a nursing degree. At the age of 30 she pursued a career in the United States Air Force. While on active duty, Beverly experienced many events that replicated her painful childhood. The result of the repeated trauma was a diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

After 20 years of living with the diagnosis, Beverly decided she had enough. She began to seek out other interventions and inadvertently met Mikki, who introduced her to the F.R.E.S.H™ Awareness Workshop. The weekend workshop had such an impact on the behaviors and emotions of PTSD that she requested he become her Life Coach and Mentor. Today, Beverly is one of  Mikki’s peers. Her life is proof that “The Fresh Awareness Workshop” works!
