Cinda Stevens Lonsway


Cinda is a native Oregonian. She has spent multiple years in Sales, Marketing and Management, as well as 13 years in leadership in her children’s schools’ PTA’s.

In January of 2008, Cinda had the rare opportunity to participate in Oprah’s first ever global web classroom for the author Eckhart Tolle’s book “A New Earth”. Cinda asked Eckhart and Oprah, “When you say, Evolve or Die, do you mean it literally?” Eckhart’s answer, “Yes”. Ever since, Cinda has decided to Evolve.

In June of 2009, she became a co-founder of The Village Ecosystem Student Challenge, a non-profit with the overall goal of taking care of our planet by challenging and empowering students to participate in their environmentally sustainable future.

In May of 2010, at 1:00am, Cinda was inspired to write ROAR! Which went viral in a matter of weeks after she shared in on facebook.

With two degrees, one in Retail Management from Bassist College and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Asian Studies from Oregon State University, it is really her sons, who have provided her with her most important education. Her home is just outside of Portland, Oregon where she lives with her high school sweetheart husband, her sons, a naughty golden retriever, and a psycho cat.
