I first walked on fire in 1993.  I knew immediately that I needed to learn the art of leading others in this incredibly transformative experience. I am proud to have learned from Master Firewalking Instructors from several schools, including The Firewalking Center, F.I.R.E., and SunDoor.  I completed my FIT, and went on to become a Master Firewalking Instructor under the exacting and loving tutelage of Tolly Burkan, Peggy Dylan (the "Mother and Father of the Firewalking Movement"), Kevin Axtell and Steve Consalves at the Firewalking Center.

I, along with my Fire-Sister, Kerry Cudmore, developed the Empowerment Leadership and Firewalking Instructor Training and Certification program.  Together, we bring over 50 years of actively empowering others in leadership, self-direction, financial and spiritual development. ELFIT provides extensive small-business and entrepreneurial coaching, and ongoing post-certification support. We combine all of this with humor, compassion, and a deep dive into metaphysics-assuring your heart, mind, soul and body are well nourished and aligned with your purpose as a Certified Firewalking Instructor.

At ELFIT you'll gain expertise in leading firewalks, glass-walks, arrow breaks, rebar bends, board breaks, and so much more in a thoughtful, caring container for this training that will transform your life! 

Perhaps you have crossed the coals and been so well blessed by the Fire that, like me,  you feel compelled to lead others in these life-changing rites of passage.  If so, please contact us, as classes are forming, now for 2023.

Private ELFIT Training is available, if you prefer to learn one on one.
