Being a happy person

Sara Hefty works in communications with growing specialties in being a happy person, feelings literacy, and transforming anger, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and negativity into energy that serves the highest good of all – whatever that may be. She holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire and has certifications in transformational coaching, holistic health coaching, and cancer support education. She currently studies psychology at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay.

In this conversation, Sara shares with Jo how she committed herself to becoming a happy person and the journey that this led her onto.

Sara Hefty is a multi-passionate person. Born in 1981, she and her husband have happily been together since 1999. They live in Union, Wisconsin, with their dogs Bexley Joy and Freyja Sunshine. Some of Sara’s additional passions include: painting upward spirals and the human journey, deploying with Team Rubicon (a veteran-led humanitarian and disaster relief organization), playing pickleball, procrastinating on completing her private pilot’s certificate, hunting for rocks, attending shows, reading paperbacks, collecting recipes from the New York Times, learning French, improving her home, having new-to-her experiences (locally and abroad), becoming an impactful activist, connecting to people from all walks of life, empowering kids who paint and draw, enjoying the fresh air, sunshine – especially sunrises and sunsets, forest bathing and star gazing, getting energized by drumlines and marching bands, and so much more.
