Tell us about yourself! What do you do outside of Gem Studio?


Hi! I'm Mckenna I guess! I'd like to think I am a positive, outgoing, and happy person!

Outside of silversmithing with the Gem Studio, I help others with their health. This is something I am so passionate about and love to spend my time doing every day! I grew up watching my parents change others' lives doing this and I knew from a young age that health coaching was also what I wanted to do.


What does being a health coach mean?


As a transformation coach, I help guide others to optimal health in all areas! Including physical, mental, and financial to help people become the best versions of themselves! I'd be honored to partner with anyone looking to make a change in their lives! Connect with me on Facebook:

I love people and couldn't enjoy what I do more.


What else are you passionate about?


I have a wild love for the mountains, meeting new interesting people, being in the ocean, and good music. If it's nice outside and I am not, I can't handle myself. I love the outdoors and feel like I need t omake the best of every day by doing something eventful! You can find me hiking, climbing, snowshoeing...basically anything the weather allows.


What is currently playing on your Spotify?


My current playlist on Spotify is one I made called Fridays Child. I made this playlist not too long ago when I was in Colorado. You know when Spotify auto names the album as the first song name added? Well, that's what happened in this case and I had planned on changing it. Never got around to it and it just fits now! (Playlist names are important!) It is jam-packed with some of the most timeless songs.

You can listen to the playlist via this link! :https://open.spotify.com/playlist/37dMVp2dp8t9Ibq5zwPq0h?si=nipvCGkES-q8WrmFp-E3mw


What do you want to manifest in your life come 2020?


In 2020 + my future in general, I would like to manifest becoming an uplifting and positive person. Personal growth is something I work on every day and enjoy. Working towards the best version of myself is so important to me! Also finding the good in every situation and always being optimistic are things I will continue working on this year!
