Heather Ehle, founder, and chief executive officer of Project Sanctuary

Heather Ehle, founder, and chief executive officer of Project Sanctuary, is a Registered Nurse (RN) with more than 25 years of experience in the health care industry as a nurse, manager, volunteer and entrepreneur. She has extensive experience in the nonprofit health care system. A proud single mother of three, Heather adopted a sibling pair through foster care. She is driven by a strong desire to give back and do more. After reading that the rates of child abuse and neglect triple when a parent is deployed, Heather was moved to do something and founded Project Sanctuary in 2007. Being a civilian without direct ties to military families, she reached out to the community for support and education. Led by veterans and her board, she carefully listened to what the military families needed and then structured Project Sanctuary’s programs to meet those needs, pulling from her background as an RN to establish an evidence-based program that encompasses physical and emotional healing. In 2010, Heather was a finalist for People Magazine’s All-Stars Among Us. In 2012, Project Sanctuary was honored at the White House as one of only five 2012 “Joining Forces Community Challenge Winners,” chosen out of over 300 nominees in recognition of its work with military families. In 2017 Heather was chosen and successfully completed Stanford University’s nonprofit, executive leadership training.


Susan Golicic, Ph.D. Professor, Life Coach, Author, and Speaker

Life is an adventure and Susan’s life has gifted her with a spiritual journey through much re-vision! She's been an environmental engineer, a supply chain manager, a certified sommelier, and now a business professor and life and relationship coach. Through it all, Susan has always embraced adventure to move forward in her life. She strives to now share this gift with others – through adventure she can help you take better care of yourself, resolve relationship issues (including those with yourself), set and achieve your life goals, and live uninhibitedly! When not serving clients or students, she spends time on personal development, running, hiking, exploring nature, traveling, cooking, and loves a good glass of wine, great food, and enhancing connections with her partner and tribe!
