U GROW GIRL! Circle of Thought is the brainchild of Cynthia Ace and is the product of both the pain and passion of her life.

Cynthia believes that becoming more selfless is an essential part of experiencing a highly fulfilling life.  There are so many demands on women to ‘do’ this and ‘do’ that, that little time is spent ‘becoming’ the kind of women who can begin to transform their lives and their world.   U GROW GIRL! Circles of Thought offer safe environments for women to grow, receive affirmation, build relationships, and become women who positively impact the lives of others.

Cynthia is a Life Coach who uses her skills to assist clients in reaching their predetermined goals.  A mainstay of her practice includes strategies for building healthy relationships in the home, the workplace, and across multiple social settings.  “We relate to people everywhere we go.  Mastering the art of doing relationships well, will improve one’s life tremendously.”
