I’m a(n)…

Entrepreneur, Nature Lover, Audiophile, Meditator, Idea Generator, Person who has your back!

I’m passionate about…

Music, Mother Nature, Mindfulness, Creative Expression, Making the world a more compassionate place.

Briefly describe your work.

I work as an administrative consultant to entrepreneurs who bring mindfulness practices into the world — women who run wellness retreats, inspirational speakers, holistic healers, community leaders, and women who teach creative expression.

I serve in many different capacities but most often I assist in coordinating large workshops, retreats, classes and gatherings. I also manage the back end of operations in the online portion of these businesses and serve as client care center for some.

What do you love about what you do?

I LOVE supporting business owners who bring new ways of healing, coping, awakening and living to people who need it in this crazy world. I love seeing people connect, transform, grow and awaken. I love helping people love themselves and create magic in their lives. Traveling has also been a perk!

How did you start (your work)?

I worked for New York Life Insurance for 10 years as an assistant to a high-level executive. At the same time I was on a journey of self-discovery through holistic healing, energy work and meditation with a community of women in NYC. I started to offer administrative help and therein, I found that there was a high need for administrative experience and personal support for women in this field.

What do you like best about BEAHIVE?

I love the BEAHIVE values of creating community and the desire to share and grow personally and professionally. I love that it’s right in the middle of town and offers the opportunity to meet, connect and collaborate. There is a nice synergy with the intentions of my own business.

Where do you see your work going in the next year… five?

I plan to focus more on Retreat Concierge and Coordination as well as begin to run my own events (women’s circles and retreats a little closer to home). I desire to create a community, locally, of like-minded folks who support others, offer healing to the masses and thrive together.

About Scott Tillitt

I’m the founder of BEAHIVE and Antidote Collective, which does communications and projects for a better world (bio). I’m also a founder and board chair of Re>Think Local, and am involved in various other projects and community engagements focused on making Beacon and the Hudson Valley a more vibrant, sustainable, locally-rooted and human-scale place to live and work.

I moved to Beacon from Brooklyn in 2006 and very quickly fell in love with the people, the mountain, the river, the creative energy.
