Shohreh Davoodi (she/her) is the host of the Conjuring Up Courage podcast. Shohreh is a self-trust coach for queer folks (and accomplices), a writer, and a rainbow glitter bomb of a human. Through her content and coaching, she helps people move through self-doubt and shame so they can live their lives with intention and step into their motherf*cking magic. When Shohreh's not in front of her computer, you can find her on her trapeze, shooting her compound bow, traipsing around in nature, playing music, doing crafty shit, and loving on her girlfriend and two pups. You can keep up with Shohreh on her website, Instagram, TikTok, Pinterest, and Facebook.
Jessie R. (she/her) is the lead singer/guitarist for the all-girl, alt-rock band Langton Drive. Jessie is an extroverted introvert with a passion for learning new things. In her free time, she enjoys shooting her compound bow, leatherworking, woodworking, playing music, playing video games, reading, watching the NWSL & USWNT, and cuddling up with her girlfriend and pups. You can find Jessie on Instagram.
