After years of leading women’s circles & events, Maja and Kate have designed Women’s ALTER as a response to what is needed in order to support all self-identifying women to increase their capacity to make a powerful, consistent, and sustainable impact.
Maja Jerkic is a professional coach, counselor, consent workshop facilitator, youth mentor for young men, artist, and co-founder of Women’s ALTER.
Maja works with women that are seeking to experience transformation in their relationships, personal growth, and leadership development. While living in Hawaii and facilitating women’s groups Maja realized that many women that she encountered were ready to step out of their healing journey and into transformative action. Her rigorous coaching training— via the Academy of Coaching Excellence (ACE)— has prepared her to support individuals that are ready to lead their lives in order to experience clarity, purpose, and fulfillment. You can catch Maja leading consent workshops in San Francisco with her partner and collaborating with Holistic Underground on local projects. Maja loves to travel the coastline of California, share DIY recipes, build her kitchenware pottery business, study mindfulness, read about queer liberation, kayak, deepen community networks, people-watch, and enthusiastically share photos of her cat who is skillfully toilet trained.
