About Me

Hi, My Name is
Sierra Hillsman!

As the CEO of Legacy Speaks, I work with startups, small businesses, and corporations to increase talent retention rates and improve employee work-life satisfaction. Our emotional wellness training and development programs provide the skills and support needed for preventing career-related stressors. 

When not helping people become a better version of themselves, you can find me doing everything from volunteering and advocacy to trap yoga and hiking. My biggest accomplishment has been the ability to create a life worth living and assisting others in doing the same for themselves.

Expertise

Exploring the
Heart Work to Excel in the Hard Work

My coaching and training is rooted in my years of experience as a licensed psychotherapist, Certified Anger Management Specialist – II, and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. My specialties include life transitions, work-life harmony, and stress management.

I have helped leaders and high-potential employees improve their ability to effectively communicate; establish and maintain boundaries; and achieve a sense of purpose and fulfillment in their daily living. 

Philosophy

Making the Whole Person the Priority

I believe that true, authentic change does not occur by happenstance. Instead, it is created and sustained by the execution of incremental tasks fueled by a commitment to self and others. 

My goal as a coach is to empower people to create a life worth living by equipping them with the tools, resources, and strategies necessary for mental and emotional well-being. My approach emphasizes the client’s strengths and power of choice while fostering nonjudgment toward their human experience.

a Previous Client

As a training, coaching, and consulting firm, we pride ourselves in the life changing results that we have been able to deliver and would love to do the same for you and your organization.

"I found your presentation very thorough in all of the ways employees could look after their mental health, and I appreciated that it was more than the surface level fixes that you so often see suggested (take a bath, put your phone away, etc). My favorite part was the wellness wheel, which is not something I had seen before, and I connected with the conversation around work/life harmony vs. balance."

I found your presentation very thorough in all of the ways employees could look after their mental health, and I appreciated that it was more than the surface level fixes that you so often see suggested (take a bath, put your phone away, etc). My favorite part was the wellness wheel, which is not something I had seen before, and I connected with the conversation around work/life harmony vs. balance. I also liked that you got the group involved in reading the slides, and thought it was a great amount of information in a shorter amount of time.

Sierra, thank you for your commitment to providing support, work, and leadership. The work that you do is so critical when we consider trauma and overall wellness in black and brown communities.

Aline J. Milfort Author & Mental health advocate

Sierra explained the topic thoroughly and communicated effectively with the audience. Her style of presentation and confidence kept the audience engaged and her knowledge of the presented topic enhanced the attendee’s level of understanding. Her passion for the field and desire to answer questions provided by audience truly showed Sierra is an excellent mental health professional and speaker.

Sierra was great! We all took away a few gems from her presentation. Especially when it came to advice with adjusting to the current environment with children and giving yourself grace when it came to your work productivity. Overall, the presentation was amazing. We definitely recommend her and would love to partner again.

This was an excellently executed event! Sierra, your professionalism, preparation/foresight, and thoughtfulness were felt in every detail.

Anthony “AJ” Joiner #Thejoinermethod

I have worked with a lot of people but Sierra is entirely in her own league. She is thoughtful, knows her stuff and lovingly cuts to the brass tax of whatever your true need is. She gives you the tools, they hit your brain, and JUST LIKE THAT your life is better for it. And she’s always just a call away. RUN to Sierra now if you’re on the fence, and thank me later.

Lillie Mae Founder of glambitious

It was an immense pleasure to interview on the Legacy Speaks platform! Sierra is very dedicated to giving visionaries a space to inspire, and I’m glad I could be involved. Our discussion was very introspective, engaging and my network found it to be a very enlightening.
