Christine Fonner, M.Ed.
Founder and CEO
Christine is the founder and owner of Roam Your Soul. After 15 years in corporate leadership and advocating for radical care in the workplace, she knew that her passion for building communities and space for people to thrive was needed for women. Christine’s retreats focus on helping women who are tired of being tired find deeper meaning in life through adventure and authentic community. She believes that women need a support network, community, and opportunities to be vulnerable to engage in what makes life meaningful.
She’s an expert: Christine has a Master’s in transformational leadership/change management and is a strengths-based transformational coach. Christine is a professional presenter and public speaker at national conferences and enjoys facilitating workshops and professional development trainings for organizations. She is currently working on her PhD in Organizational Leadership, specializing in “the human factor” – the connection between personal/interpersonal needs and joy at work.
She’s an adventurer: Based out of Texas and Colorado, Christine travels around the world and has ridden her bicycle on multiple continents. She nourishes her nomadic spirit in travel, outdoor adventures, and exploring new places.
Christine offers virtual and in-person consulting and coaching in transformation, career, personal and professional goals, and in organizational culture development and business optimization.
Emotional Somatic Coach
Ariel is an Emotional Somatic Coach specializing in Functional Neurology. She has been in practice for over 10 years and continues to grow and learn more every day.
My journey isn’t uncommon for many women, having dealt with years of physical, sexual and emotional trauma. It had resulted in a multitude of symptoms: High functioning anxiety, depression, TMJ pain, chronic joint/back pain, low libido, panic attacks, hormone imbalances, sleepless nights, binge eating, years of intoxication with drugs and alcohol, etc. I spent years in talk therapy and was good at intellectualizing my emotions. I thought, “This is it. It doesn’t get better from here; I just get better at handling my “Normal.” It wasn’t until I started implementing body work and restoring safety to my nervous system that I felt a significant difference in my mental, emotional, and physical health.”

Debi sees the world through compassionate eyes and is always thinking of others. Debi has a thirst for knowledge and shares generously from her career and personal life.
