“I attended Elizabeth Trinkaus’ Pinnacle View Retreat at a very challenging time in my life. A friend sponsored me; it was life-changing – a springboard for a renewed outlook on my life. The retreat provided tangible tools to move forward by rewriting old scripts and living a new self-empowered plan. As a result, I love my life (I didn’t know that was possible because I was so hard on myself), and —I get to help others by making an annual donation to the Scholarship Fund!
You can do it too. Venmo: Elizabeth-Trinkaus-1 – Leslie Chauncey, Arlington, VA
