Meet Olga Pyshnyak-Lawrence! 

Olga Heashot

Olga and her daughter Maya hiking Diamond Head in Hawaii.

Olga, the oldest of eight children, born in the Ukraine and relocated to the States when she was nine, knows the meaning of passionate pursuit and dedication to every endeavor that crosses her path. Taking the easy way out has never been her motto. She laughs at challenges and plans to scale every professional mountain that she encounters.

Her career has been filled with an abundant seven-year corporate experience where she dealt with every issue and every department imaginable. Outside of her day job, Olga excelled at leading within the community either through varied volunteer work or committed long-term assignments such as serving on the board or teaching English to senior citizens that have immigrated to the States.

She loves to write and share her extensive thoughts on almost any topic. If she is passionate about something, don’t get her started! She’s not screaming, she’s just excited! 

Olga is a beloved mother of Maya, the apple of her eye, and a trying wife of Chris, God bless his soul. She loves people and enjoys every bit of craziness they have to offer. The crazier, the better. Weirdness and social awkwardness doesn’t scare her.

She is an author, blogger, life coach and an aspiring motivational speaker. Read her thoughts on her blog THE PYSHNYAK-LAWRENCE POWER LINE. Olga’s obsession with wellness and authentic living, community empowerment and love of family, have driven her to pursue one of her unique dreams and projects, the Maternal Movement, through which she believes every mother can become a Motivated Mama, surrounded by an encouraging community that inspires her to lead a fulfilling and a more balanced, passionate life.

Her newest additional role and adventure is being the Founder of the Frontlines Ministry; Trifecta Reformers. Check it out!

Meet Melissa Biehl – Mama Advisor!

 In her own words:

“My name is Melissa Biehl and my story with kids and helping people started when I was little. I am from a very big family with 14 cousins whom I baby sat and was always fascinated by. I dreamed of the day I would be a mother. I was the friend people came up to confide in and the one uniting couples in school. ​

Later in my life I got married and had my two kids. They are the greatest blessings in my life and my source of inspiration in being a Doula, Assistant Midwife, Childbirth Educator, Certified Lactation Consultant and Parenting Advisor. bio pic

​My life started to revolve around helping mothers and partners with giving birth, breastfeeding, nutrition (I was a fitness trainer in Germany.) holistic healing methods, creative art and parenting advice.

The goal is to build up a wholesome motherhood, a feeling of happiness, bringing loving empowerment to the families, through birth, postpartum care and family life. I encourage partners and the chosen ones to be in the birth room, giving them practical tools and emotional support, preparing them to bond deeply with the baby and ENJOYING IT! CELEBRATING IT! ​

Every day, I look forward to employing my talents and knowledge to bring to reality the desired outcomes, for moms and partners, making a bridge with the birth team, so that they understand what is envisioned for the birth and the baby, all supported by science based knowledge, emotional balance and awareness.

I love what I do and update myself constantly, attending certified courses, hearing parents’ birth preferences and connecting it all with a deep feeling of compassion and gratitude.”
