Jonny was instilled with the travel bug from a young age, and by the time he was 19, he and a friend took a year off of college, got certified as ESL instructors, and moved to Spain where they spent a year teaching English, learning Spanish, and living it up in the Spanish country-side. From then on travel was in his blood - and he was officially addicted to the feeling that the adventure of travel brings.
Fast-forward a few years and upon graduating from his undergrad degree in Social Thought and Political Economy, he set out to complete an internship in Peru, installing Cleaner-Burning Stoves in the rural Andes. He was invited to work with ProWorld, the organization he was interning with, and for the next seven years lived and worked in Peru, Belize, and Mexico. Throughout that time, he was promoted to Global Programs Director, over-seeing 15 country-sites around the world that hosted thousands of volunteers every year.
ProWorld provided short-term voluntourism programs to individuals and groups. Jonny directly led or oversaw hundreds of group programs and he learned how to run seamless group experiences that included adventure, culture, and integration with the local community. Throughout his time with ProWorld, he worked with hundreds of groups ranging in size from 5 to 125, insuring a quality experience for them all.
Following his time in Latin America, he moved to Colorado and completed a Master’s Degree in Global Public Health from Colorado State University, as well as a Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica. With these degrees, combined with a life coaching certification from the Robbins-Madanes Institute for Strategic Intervention, he has joined the world of life and relationship coaching, providing coaching to clients around the U.S.
It is the combination of all these passions that lends itself to our No More Boring Weddings business: Travel, Education, Psychology, and Personal Development, all intertwined to create an incredible experience for you and your guests.
Elsie grew up in Duluth, Minnesota skiing in the winters and swimming in the summers. When she was 23 she took her first extended solo trip abroad to Belize where she volunteered with ProWorld Service Corps and met a handsome young director named Jonny Roman.
While in Belize she fell in love with the country (not to mention a certain Director), and was determined to find a way to continue adventuring abroad. After her time in Belize, Elsie went back to the US and worked at the Univ. of Minnesota for some time before taking a job with ProWorld as a University Representative and Field Marketer. Throughout her time with ProWorld she worked her way up to Sales and Marketing Manager and sold, marketed and led hundreds of group programs in over 15 countries. Through that experience she has learned the ins and outs of what makes people want to go abroad, how to get them excited for the trip through experiential marketing campaigns, and how to lead a kick-ass trip on the ground.
After she left ProWorld, she received a Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology, and a coaching certificate from Robbins-Madanes Strategic Intervention Institute, and is now a powerful Life Coach who shines the light on her client’s limiting stories they have been telling themselves for years, so they can honor their truth and stand tall in their greatness.
Today she serves clients in over 8 countries around the world and is the co-author of the upcoming book “No More Boring Weddings: How to Use Adventure, Travel, and Culture to Create an Epic Experience…Not Just Another Wedding.”
You can find her leading the #Truesday movement on Facebook, at her coaching website, or traveling the world with her beloved husband, Jonny, and their Belizean street dog, a tri-pawd named Ollie.
