Coleen York

Coleen York is the founder and editor of She Has Worth. She also really doesn’t like talking about herself in the third person, but alas, here she finds herself.

Coleen began She Has Worth after many years of trying to find her identity in pretty much all the wrong places. Through the relational, emotional, and physical struggles that came with trying to find approval from anyone or anything other than God, it gave her a passion to reach out to others who are fighting similar battles. Though she doesn’t have all the answers, her hope is to help build a community who builds each other up and champions one another despite tumultuous pasts or current struggles. Which you can read more about here.

Coleen is a native Ohioan who resides in Southern California and is now probably over-confident in her driving abilities. She is also a freelance copywriter & editor (coleenyork.com) and would love to work with you on your projects. Arguably, she is one of the strangest and most ADD people you will ever meet in life or find on Twitter or Instagram.

Additionally, Coleen enjoys being outside, traveling, hiking, art, Oreos, slurpees, and coffee (not all together, that would probably be gross). Oh, and feathers and dinosaurs. Or feathered dinosaurs.

 

Shannon Douglas

Shannon Douglas

Shannon is a storyteller, event stylist, and organization strategist. From writing and editing to curating, she believes that stories are the building blocks for who we were, are, and will become. She loves putting words to her own journey, helping others do the same, and giving people a platform to use their stories to help others.

After living in Florida, Arizona, and Tennessee, Shannon has since settled down in Southern California working as a Communications Director for South Hills Church. She‘s an advocate for Haiti, mental health, and for young women struggling with their self-worth.

Shannon has an eye for transforming big ideas within organizations into reality by creating and implementing processes that help grow the health of the team. In her free time, she enjoys interior decorating and styling events for friends and family. With two parents who worked in retail and residential interior design, she’s grown to love the intention and detail that goes into making someone’s space his or her own. Every environment has a story to tell.

Be sure to say hi to her on her personal Twitter or Instagram (@ohallelujah), or stop by her site and share your story. Or, if you just want to invite her to hang out at Disneyland, that works too.

 

Anna Couchenour

Anna CouchenourAnna works as an Intervention Specialist for students in kindergarten through third grade. She is nestled in the ‘burbs of Columbus, Ohio with her dog, Lilou.

Anna loves anything artsy and has recently developed an affinity for hand-lettering and creating her own designs. Anna long ago was bitten with the travel bug and is always up for any adventure or trip. She also has a knack for making perfect playlists and loves finding new music. Given the choice, she would choose The Food Network over TLC, antique over brand new, and spicy over mild.

While she feels that some of her other talents trump her writing skills, she hopes that by being a contributor to She Has Worth, her personal relationship with God will be strengthened and that He will speak through her.

You can connect with her on Twitter or find her on instagram at @ayceesquared.

 

Josh Neuroth

Josh Neuroth

Josh grew up in on a farm in Michigan. After finishing college in Ohio, he moved to New York City.

He’s usually seen as a serious person, though his close friends know him better. He works at the intersection of design, technology, and storytelling. Moments that involve adventures, coffee, and photography are high on the list.

Josh is passionate about using new visual and organizational mediums to build the Kingdom, especially in other parts of the world.

Josh writes posts on his iPhone because it allows him to take advantage of subway commutes. It also forces him to stop rambling on countless side topics, something he may or may not be famous for.

In his free time, you can find him strolling through one of Manhattan’s fine museums or working on projects with friends in a dingy Brooklyn coffee shop. If you ever want to start a long conversation with Josh, ask him about his theory on the dinosaurs.

Connect with him on Twitter or on Instagram.

 

Beth Ann Platt

Beth Ann Platt is a contributing artist & writer for the She Has Worth Instagram. She is a California girl bringing sunshine to her new home in Maryland. She has a heart for people and a passion for the local church. She is blessed to serve on staff at an amazing multi-campus church in the DMV area called Church of the Redeemer where she directs the Kids Choir and oversees the Rkids Worship Ministry.

Beth Ann grew up in a Christian home and accepted Jesus at a young age. She has had various growing pains in her relationship with Christ but is so thankful to be where she is with Him today. It is amazing that while she is growing herself, she can share what God is teaching her.

Beth Ann is addicted to coffee in almost any form and loves nothing more than tucking herself away for devo time in a cozy coffee shop. She is almost always singing or humming something. On Fridays and Saturdays you will probably find her browsing the local thrift stores and yard sales finding treasures (and a lot of trash that she tries to refurbish into treasures). She really likes all things DIY, except for cooking. She is often caught doodling on any paper placed in front of her. She even has an Etsy Store  that you should check out. Lastly, she smiles and laughs a lot (sometimes a cackle or snort slips out).

She loves new friends so find her on Twitter and Instagram.
