Retreat Leader

Hi. I'm Kari Ladrow

Founder of iLaive


I’ve lived in Italy, England, Germany and spent time in Africa and working in a Romanian orphanage.

I’m a Clinician and hold my Masters Degree from Colorado State University.

I’ve been a Regional Director of Case Management for 16 hospitals (A big time corporate job!) And I lead a community through a pandemic as a Public Health Director. (An epic challenge!)

I started ilaive because I’ve witnessed my clients and colleagues craving to feel alive again—and their dreaming of a sacred, safe hygge kind of place to do the work they need to do to feel ilaive.

I think being outside in nature heals and eating well nourishes the body and your mind. I believe in progress not perfection —and I believe in we can make progress every day.

Ready to feel iLaive?
