In this episode of the Road to Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Elena Arecco Bridgmon & Anna Conathan. Anna is the co-founder, senior partner, and Chief Creative Officer of LUMO. She’s a coach and storyteller who believes that finding and using your authentic voice is the catalyst that changes the game for women all over the globe. She’s a leader who helps her clients (and team) find their own unique voices and use them with passion, purpose, and Lusciousness.
Before joining LUMO, Anna established herself as a multi-faceted writer, elite creative, and actress. Anna worked as an in-house writer for Disney Animation and penned feature film and television screenplays for some of the world’s largest production companies including Disney, Sony, Warner Brothers, and Paramount. She has performed at top comedy venues in NYC and LA, and in international comedy festivals.
Anna completed a series of intensive evaluations and training with Accomplishment Coaching. Her practice focuses on energizing creatives throughout their journeys of passion, creative blocks, and discovery.
Elena is a natural problem solver with a rare combination of analytical and people skills. In addition to her extensive coaching experience, she brings to LUMO over 20 years of professional experience working in companies large and small— including 15 years at Bank of America, where she saw firsthand that happy and engaged employees are productive employees.
In her roles in internal Operations and Human Resources, she developed both people and processes; crisscrossing her way up the ranks with positions in Staffing, Program Management, Compensation, Governance, and Leadership Development. When she realized how frequently she was having coaching conversations with employees, offering advice on how to advocate for themselves and navigate to their next role, she took her natural ability to the next level and trained to become a certified executive, life, and leadership coach with Accomplishment Coaching. As an internal coach for Bank of America, Elena continued to hone and refine her coaching skills, coaching both executives and mid-level leaders. Elena also served as a mentor coach and trainer for Accomplishment Coaching, traveling to Washington, DC monthly for two years. In 2020 she became an International Coach Federation credentialed Professional Certified Coach (PCC). While at Bank of America, Elena served as the co-chair of the women’s employee network, where she was responsible for the personal and professional development of its 5,000+ members. In April 2021, she joined Luscious Mother and LUMO full-time to help working parents create the lives they want with thought and intention.
