About

Our Story

In 2013, after having a baby and experiencing the challenges of

balancing life activities such as self care, motherhood, marriage, and

career, founder Tekeya Priester decided to “getaway” with a group of

friends on an overnight retreat at a local winery and spa.


Not knowing so many other women faced the same challenges, simple “girl talk” became life changing “therapy” and motivation to live the life desired. The refreshing combination of going

somewhere new, learning something new, sharing advice/experiences, and relaxing in tranquil environment allowed for a renewed view on life, which became the beginnings for "The refresHER Experience".
