Maryanna is passionate about breaking stereotypes, seeing possibility, and living in the land of “can.”
A journal-keeper since age 16 - through Air Force life, unexpected loss, and life adventures; she discovered the full potential of expressive writing’s healing and visioning capabilities after being introduced to guided journaling techniques. She launched Chinook Writing and Journaling in hopes of equipping others with tools to unleash their voice, own their power, kickstart growth, and cultivate curiosity. She believes words have power and harnessing them can heal. Write you. Do you. Be real.
