The G3 Team

We’re Piper, Michelle and Melissa and we know the power of living purpose-driven lives. Our goal is to create opportunities for others to leverage their best to find their own power and authentic purpose. Our programs encompass business, personal growth, health and wellbeing and we take full advantage of the bounty Sonoma offers to deliver unique and engaging experiences. We each bring a little something different to the team, but we attribute our success to the magic that is created by combining our very different strengths with our very similar values and ideals. We are proud of the partnership and true friendship that fuel our work every day.

While we now focus mainly on corporate team building, coaching and leadership training, G3 began in 2014 to provide a forum for women to gather in authentic community, grow through shared experience and self-reflection, and go forth empowered and encouraged to lead a fulfilled life. We’ve hosted eight women’s conferences, a women’s retreat, monthly Speaker Series, and multiple G3 Girls events. We still love empowering women and girls, but we also love what happens when these same basic principles are applied in a corporate setting to inspire and engage individuals and teams to perform at their highest level.
