Heather Jolma Fray
I use she/her pronouns. I am a settler on Chinook, Cowlitz, and Klickitat lands, among others. I facilitate virtual and in-person group movement, mindfulness and breathing classes. As a teacher and student, my intention is always to deepen our sensitivity and broaden our awareness while considering impact and privilege without appropriation. I have been teaching group classes for 20 years and have had the pleasure of running a community movement center for 7 of those years. I have since closed the movement center and am spending my working time preparing for a career in emergency medicine. I am the lucky mama to two sons, and in my personal time I sing, read, and tend a rambling garden in the country.Apply Now

Meg & Neena
Meg and Neena are both trained Physiotherapists (PTs) with over 25 years of combined clinical experience. They met as clinicians but soon realized they shared many commonalities; one being passion for all things design and the relationship our environment has on the individual experience. They both noticed a massive lack of aesthetic appeal when it comes to health and wellness spaces, and started to ask how we could enhance a patient’s personal experience, through thoughtful design of the wellness space. After many personal triumphs in interior design, they were approached to design a wellness center and soon realized that their unique lens of being clinicians and clinic owners really informed a thoughtful and intentional design that doesn’t exist in this industry. Meg and Neena are on a mission to change the status quo of healthcare spaces. From the moment someone walks in the door of a clinic or studio or wellness center, they should be confronted by all senses that it is a place of vitality, health, comfort and wellness. When we feel our worst, we need our surroundings to inspire our best.Apply Now
Story is the most powerful tool for compelling human beings, but too many business leaders fail because they aren't telling the right story. They end up trapped by the very business that was supposed to give them freedom. It's tough to know what changes to make to the story when you're alone with the struggle. Paul developed Tributary Coaching™ to create positive change in the lives of business owners and the communities in which they operate.
Everyone at Tributary Coaching™ is driven to help people thrive while finding happiness and renewed purpose in their lives. Paul's story began as a professional ‘action sports’ coach and athlete developing and managing programs for a leading company in his field. It was during those adventures that he learned the importance of coaching, commitment, and operating in the moment with intense focus and determination while simultaneously managing fear and self-doubt. The natural world can be one of life’s greatest teachers if you ‘attend class’ on a regular basis.
He started paddling some of the most demanding rivers anywhere at a young age. Soon after moving to Oregon he was making appearances in numerous film projects taking him to the very brink of what can be done in a sea kayak for National Geographic. He was asked back time after time as a guest coach at the top international symposiums in the years to follow. Paul served as a Marine Technical Advisor to Paramount Pictures and made appearances in national television ad campaigns for companies like Keen Footwear and Tampax. He even worked a day on the set of the popular TV show ‘Portlandia’ personally coaching actor Fred Armisen and serving as an expert consultant.
Despite the long list of accomplishments, Paul’s most proud of his volunteer efforts spent cleaning his local rivers and fighting for access to clean water, even gracing the pages of the NY Times in defense of free flowing rivers.
Paul is a Best Selling Author, Dual Certified Storybrand™ Guide and Business Made Simple™ Coach. He's also a TetraKey qualified Lead Trainer and Performance Coach with over two decades of coaching and training experience. For more information visit tributarycoaching.com.Apply Now
