🌱 Roots to Rise 🌱

Join Jumakae for a 12 week online group immersion of reclaiming your ancestors' medicine. Find clarity in your message, craft your signature story, and build the confidence to facilitate online group programs to strategically grow your income and legacy.



Are you...
...allowing procrastination and an ongoing to-do list get in the way of living in alignment with your dharma?
...feeling isolated on your journey and crave the right connections, peer support, and accountability to move you forward?
...lacking structure to balance out your big dreams of pursuing healing work?
...exhausted from not seeing enough people who look like you in leadership roles while asking, "Why not me"?
...ready to gain clarity on your story medicine and what you're here to offer to the world?

I see you.

🌱 Your stories of victimhood and oppression have been holding you back, and you’re committed to releasing the pain by divorcing from the struggle to marry something greater.

🌱 You’ve been investing so much time and energy into building other people’s dreams, but have a difficult time being able to show up for your own.

🌱 You're afraid of what others will think of you if you put yourself out there.

🌱 People always ask you for help, but you don't know where to set the boundary.

🌱 You're constantly chasing after the next certification, because you never feel ready enough.

🌱 You're exhausted from following the status quo, and are ready to write your own rules.

🌱 You've been facilitating single sessions or workshops (or desire to do so), and are ready to generate income with your own online signature group program.

🌱 You know you have an incredible story, but need support with finding the right words to express what it is you do so that you can get booked (and paid!) for speaking engagements.

🌱 You feel in your bones that there is a healer within your lineage, and you're ready to connect with that part of yourself.


Hi, I'm Jumakae! 

(or "June" for short.) 

...and I support changemakers, visionaries, and aspiring coaches of color in the wellness field with finding clarity in their message and confidence in speaking so that they can share their story, grow their online business, and heal generations before/after them.  As an artivist (artist +activist) and community organizer turned transformational life coach (or "life doula") and wellness advocate, I didn't think it was ethical of me to pursue the work I felt naturally good at as a career. After all, healers aren't supposed to charge for their gifts! But after several years in the nonprofit industrial complex, becoming a "consultant," and many missed payments later, I knew it was time to start thinking like my own boss by getting clear on my purpose, putting healthy boundaries in place, and changing my story.

As a result of my coaching, people gain confidence in their speaking, have the clarity to further their message, and tell their story in an embodied way.

Sure, you can have the website and branding.

You can come up with your "elevator pitch."

You can attend yet another training to show your credibility.

But none of that matters if information is not transmuting into action.

Most importantly, you must feel in your body that what you desire is possible!

And it ALL begins with your STORY.


"Masterful Storyteller, Caller of Visions for us to share our own stories with skill, grace, and power. June helped me advocate for my needs as I started getting approached for more speaking engagements. This has tremendously helped me with creating better boundaries and what it is I say yes to."

Susanna Barkataki
Yoga Diversity & Equity Advocator, Founder of Ignite Yoga & Wellness Institute

"Jumakae is effortless and intuitive as to helping people deepen into their stories. It was empowering and inspiring to see how quickly she is able to create desire / engagement from people's typical 'elevator pitch.' As someone who's been to various coaching masterminds, you can tell she has embodied all her mentor's and seminars she's attended. She doesn't just talk the talk, she walks it. Work with her if you want to be unapologetic about your story and building your business!"

Cindy Chau
Spiritual Coach & Psychotherapist, www.Wellnessvybz.com

"June is a powerful leader and group facilitator! I learned so much from her storytelling workshop and from observing her performance and teaching skills. I would highly recommend June to teach others on how to facilitate a meaningful workshop and provide guidance around sharing our stories."

Elyse Preston

"June’s work is akin to the wind on a sailboat! Her gifts and capacity to retrieve and birth my story is a helpful guide in the process of developing my brand and offerings. Through her exquisite formulas, techniques, and deep energetic and physical wisdom of the body, she efficiently fosters confidence in me to show myself authentically with the world."

Jaguar Moon (aka Diana Paez)
Brand Alchemist, Founder of www.thewell.media

"Prior to working with June, I had worked with other business coaches and developed my first program, but was struggling to find true clarity on my unique medicine. After working with June as well as being surrounded by other womxn of color, I was able to fully embrace that my unique medicine is less so in WHAT I teach as a business coach, but in HOW I teach it, considering my values. Moving forward, I'm going to truly embrace my values of anti-capitalism, decolonization, empowerment, and more, to attract my true dream clients and guide them through truly transformative experiences!"

Annabelle Schmitt

"Jumakae is a very gifted coach. She uses her intuition and groundedness to make space for clients to grow. Working with her helped me to arrive at a place where I knew what I wanted to be doing with my life. She has an innate ability to build trust and find common ground. It felt like talking to a sister-friend who just gets you and wants to see you fly! June's warmth and strength are undeniable. As a fellow creative, she helped me tap into what was already within me and allow it to flourish. I'm so grateful for her role in my growth! "

"Prior to working with June I was lost. I had just gone through a breakups of sorts, and was feeling like I needed to start over in the quest to find myself again. I was searching for someone like June to guide me into finding my voice and sharing my medicine. Since working with June, I was able to launch my first online course which has been well-received by the community. I have also been able to write my first ebook and launch a membership program as a Vocal Empowerment Coach. Not only have I been able to find my own voice, but I am using it to inspire others to find and use their own. I highly recommend working with June if you are someone who needs a little tough love every once in awhile to get yourself back on track. June was that push and accountability that I had been looking for. "

Danellia Arechiga
Birthworker + Vocal Empowerment Coach

"I was inspired to work with June because of her energy and expertise. My story prior to working with June needed a little bit of work and as a result of working with her, I became more clear on my vision and helped me outline my new course offering. I am excited to launch my 7-week storycrafting course next month for 12 artists, entrepreneurs, and business professionals of color! I recommend working with June because she will see the essence of your story and pull it right out of you! Thank you June!!"

Haylee Thikeo
Story Coach & Creative Entrepreneur, Podcast Host

"As a career marketer, I was always quick with counseling my clients on ways to best elevate their brand and provide value to their audience. However, when the brand I was marketing was me, I was drawing a blank. I forgot many basic things that I could do to elevate my brand and establish myself as a leader, but June helped me to reconnect with that expertise. She offered different ideas for me to consider (that by the way have already gotten rave reviews from clients), she has reminded me to flex my CEO skills, to collect evidence of my expertise, and to not be afraid to ask for the speaking engagements I want, and to set my terms for those opportunities. If you are ready to stop going it alone, and ready to hear what you need to hear (and not what you want to hear) but always with love to elevate your brand, June is the coach for you."

Frequently Asked Questions:

Because this is invite only capped at 16 people, I only make an offer if I feel like I can help you. Therefore, please take 3 minutes to fill out an application beforehand so that you can also get clear on whether or not this is the right step to help you achieve your goals. If I feel it best to not enroll you at this time, I will cancel our appointment beforehand OR let you know on the call after hearing more about your vision. 🙏 If accepted for an interview, my commitment is that you'll walk way from our call with value regardless. Thank you!

No. Just come as you are and be ready to start diving into your stories! Our conversations will take place on Zoom, so it is recommended that you at least download this app. You'll also receive modules that will be uploaded between our session which you'll receive access to through an exclusive membership portal. I would recommend keeping a journal, and having a space to ground yourself with minimal distractions during the calls.

Throughout the program, I'll recommend some tools that have helped me with my growth. It's up to you what you'd like to apply.

The purpose of this program is to focus on your stories from the inside out. When we are willing to do the inner and ancestral work, we can move with further clarity into marketing and branding how we present ourselves to the world. Everyday we are unconsciously doing this, so you will get clear on your mission and purpose that will serve as the motivating factor toward your goals. From there, this can lead into speaking opportunities or workshop offerings that you will intentionally approach from an entrepreneurial standpoint.

Although I am not a social media expert, utilizing platforms like Facebook and Instagram will be a requirement of this program so that you can practice getting comfortable with being seen. You'll also learn about the basic needs of developing your website.

Making this investment is essentially an investment in yourself and how committed you are to your personal growth. Additionally, running an online business comes with many overhead costs. In fact, every client costs me money so I am very intentional about who I am also willing to invest my time in. When you invest in this program, you are also investing in other women who I hire to help me with additional tasks so that you are feeling fully supported on your journey. Because of this, refunds will not be granted.

If you have experienced periods of financial distress, now is the time to tap into your resourcefulness so that you can break this pattern for your past and future generations.

That’s up to you, love. Stepping on this path of entrepreneurship means being able to take financial risks, and that means there is a potential for losses and gains. However, I believe that there’s no such thing as a loss, since some of my greatest lessons came from my most expensive mistakes. 

The first year of creating new opportunities for yourself typically requires a mindset shift, getting clear on your messaging, and creating the structures to have a strategy in place before launching your offerings. I wouldn’t trust any coach or program that is selling you schemes to get rich quickly. A tree doesn’t rush to grow, so we will take our time to plant strong roots.

My experience has been that when we are willing to invest in ourselves and others, we open up our capacity to receive abundance. Money is just a currency and energetic flow, and you get to decide where to direct it. Consider this an opportunity to stretch yourself toward new possibilities! Also, I will teach you how to feel prepared to offer any workshops and speaking engagements so that you are eventually positioned to monetize your offerings and generate clients (if that’s the route you choose). 

My highest intention for you is to feel at home in your body, and that is priceless. When this become a priority, opportunities are limitless.

We may have attendees in different time zones. While joining us for the coaching calls are where you'll receive a lot of growth, attendance is not mandatory.  However, it is encouraged that you watch the replays and modules while taking small action steps by posting your progress to stay engaged with the entire cohort. Any questions you have that aren't covered in our group calls can be taken to our private facebook group or booked through your complimentary 1:1 calls where you will receive additional support. 

If this is your preference over a group program, packages are as followed:

3 MONTHS: $4,997 (if paid in full), or $1,750 a month. Includes a 1.5 hour strategy session + six (6) forty-five minute sessions with me for follow-up, and unlimited support between sessions via Voxer.

6 MONTHS: $9,000 (if paid in full), or $1,750 a month. Includes a 1.5 hour strategy session + twelve (12) forty-five minute sessions with me for follow-up, and unlimited support between sessions via Voxer.

For clients who are needing support with developing their workshop, preparing for an upcoming speaking gig, or receiving coaching around mindset, rates are currently at $250 per hour.

I've cut the fluff and eliminated excuses of procrastination so that you can finally take action toward your goals within this time frame. This is for you if you can see clearly where you want to be, but you just need the accountability + push to get you through to completion. Imagine yourself in a process of rebirth, and I'm here to help you midwife who you're becoming.

I only want to collaborate with people who are seriously committed to their growth. Coaching is a partnership, and working with a group means we are all accountable to each other. There are moments in our lives where we go into hiding, and if this has been your experience then having this kind of support will ensure that you stay in action and that you are not alone.

Your feedback is a gift, and as a small business owner it's important for me to have open communication with my clients so that you're feeling supported on this path.

If you are also someone who tends to chase the next shiny object without seeing the first project through to completion, then practice the art of committing to one thing for our allotted time and finishing it through until the end.

Healing is nonlinear, so be compassionate with your pace.

The truth is, I’m not in competition with other coaches. In fact, I continue to work with my own coaches and several mentors who support me on this journey! That is a part of the paradigm shift we are creating: one that is about collaboration, increasing our sense of self-worth, tapping into our strengths, and seeing ourselves as the resources for one another as we expand our gifts.

While I work with all genders and identities, it is important for me to center the voices of women of color and survivors of sexual trauma since we are in a crucial time for us to reclaim our sensuality, pleasure, and joy. I am firm with my beliefs of equity and justice, and acknowledge that I’m not perfect; I am always learning. However, my stance as a leader is that we center healing over harm so that we do not further perpetuate these cycles of violence that have created barriers between us. (For example, I am not a fan of call-out culture if it is rooted in ego vs radical love. If a problem is going to be addressed, then be ready to offer a solution. Better yet, be the “Solutionary” as Grace Lee Boggs so graciously puts it.)

Arrive with a curious and an open heart. 

I do not believe there is one coach that fits all of your needs, and that the right coach appears in divine timing. If you are feeling called to work with me alongside an incredible group of others who are ready to awaken their story medicine, then I invite you to book a call with me to see if we are a good match.

While I privately work with all types of people who are ready to go forth confidently in the direction of their dreams, priority for this group program is for people of color to fill a large gap within the wellness and coaching industry. 

For origins on the term "women of color," watch this 6 minute video interview with Akwugo Emejulu.

If you identify as white and you are looking for a deeper relationship with your ancestors in community with others, I recommend reaching out to my dear soul sister, Reverend Briana Lynn. ✨

Alternatively, I am available for private coaching if you're keen to work with me! Please proceed forth with the application if that's the case so that I can learn more about your goals to see if I can help you.

Please note: Although I am a Professional Accredited Life Coach (PCC), I am NOT a licensed professional when it comes to mental health. (However, I consult with many organizations on how to better their wellness culture, and many of my clients are therapists looking to add coaching to their practice!) This is not a substitute for therapy, and I highly encourage you to have someone who can process unresolved trauma with you outside of this container. 

Coaching is a profession that supports personal and professional growth and development based on individual-initiated change in pursuit of specific actionable outcomes. These outcomes are linked to personal or professional success. Coaching is forward moving and future focused. Therapy, on the other hand, deals with healing pain, dysfunction and conflict within an individual or a relationship between two or more individuals. The focus is often on resolving difficulties arising from the past which hamper an individual's emotional functioning in the present, improving overall psychological functioning, and dealing with present life and work circumstances in more emotionally healthy ways.

Therapy outcomes often include improved emotional/feeling states. While positive feelings/emotions may be a natural outcome of coaching, the primary focus is on creating actionable strategies for achieving specific goals in one's work or personal life.The emphasis in a coaching relationship is on action, accountability, and follow through toward your higher self and #eldergoals.

We will do some work excavating our past since old stories are often what holds us back. However, I cannot be entirely responsible for your triggers. See this as an invitation for parts of ourselves that have yet to be healed. Consider this your trigger warning if you choose to walk with me, and know that every challenge is entirely consensual. 🖤

As an artist, she has conducted spoken word workshops and mural projects with various youth groups, and has facilitated theater skits with community members addressing local issues from workers' rights to environmental justice. As a keynote speaker, she has motivated crowds through her original poetry in high schools, college campuses, and various nonprofit groups throughout California.

"Before working with June, I had an idea of what I wanted to say and who I was speaking to but all of my ideas didn’t come together and didn’t seem very clear. I felt like I was almost ready to put my story out there, but through the magic of her coaching and the questions she asked me, she literally wrote my own words down without telling me what to say or push me in any one direction. I’m really happy because now my right fit clients are hearing my message for my business. My clients are finding me. I think that working with her is a big reason why she helped me get my message out very clearly and succinctly and honestly."

"“Strong willed and driven. June has an amazing ability to tell stories and guide people in telling their own authentic story. I didn’t know the importance of this fully until I listened to her workshop and applied her knowledge into creating my own story. She’s a visionary and I am so grateful to have her as a coach.”"

Samara Kennedy
Herbalist, Health Coach, Breathwork Practitioner of House of Umi

"I am a full time actor and entrepreneur, and recently I was approached to do my very first Guest Lecture at a university. Being in front of a classroom was something I’d never done before, so of course, I was nervous! June was generous with her time and gave me such wonderful pointers for me to share my story. She made it feel simple and not as daunting as I’d made it out to be in my head! She was so supportive and also helped to make sure I was utilizing all of my skill sets in the room. Not only that, I feel the storytelling shorthand she gave me can be utilized in all different arenas of performance, not just guest lectures! If you need help crafting a story, a lecture, a motivational speech, ANY kind of story, June is the go-to!"
