Marla Hickerson


Life is for the living. We all experience love, pain, success, and failure. Sometimes we’re riding high and other times we’re running on empty. It’s essential to learn from these experiences and move forward. The negative experiences can have lasting effects on our lives. The fact of the matter is that it’s never too late to turn your life around. Marla Hickerson of Active Soul Adventures is here to help you live a positive and fulfilling life.

Life is a journey. It’s all about healing the self. We carry around emotional baggage and all too often people lose sight of how to let go of the negative. Some of us are less fortunate than others. The effects of unbalanced living can last from childhood into our adult lives. We can rise above the negative and take a journey of self-discovery to find who we truly are.
With certifications in Culinary Management, Youth & Leisure Services and Group Wellness/ Individual Coaching, Marla shares with people the many ways to rekindle the lust for life through positivity, self-discovery, physical activity, and spirituality. In the beautiful landscape that is Thunder Bay, Canada, Marla organizes wonderful activities including horseback riding, hiking, dog sledding, and archery, cooking classes and wellness workshops to name a few through (a new endeavor is being formed!).
