Heather Reichmann/Moms Making 6 Figures

I hold many hats as most women do! By day, an Account Manager for an International Technology Company, by night a dance teacher and also a wife and mother to two amazing boys. I am a dancer and an artist.  As I was introduced to Mom’s Making Six Figures, I found a way to supplement an additional income so that I could start paying off our debt. When you don’t have any debt, you have options. Options lead to freeing up my time, while still having an income that won’t change our lifestyle. Hopefully it will improve it! I am ready to start slowing down and really enjoying my life and my family. The day to day struggles of juggling a high stress career and trying to balance that with family have left me gasping for air at times. Moms Making Six Figures has really opened my eyes to a calm that I didn’t know could exist!

Chef Joe Abston, owner of Hopjacks Pizza Kitchen & Taproom and The Tin Cow, oversees the culinary direction of Pot Roast & Pinot and Edible Invaders. A Pensacola Tate High School graduate homegrown chef learned the right way. Chef Abston started his culinary training at PJC before graduating from the culinary elite Johnson and Wales University, building the foundation for his epicurean adventure.  Humbly Joe applied his education working around the world diversifying his culinary portfolio in such great places as the Ritz-Carlton and Le Bec Fin. Starting in 2008 Joe focused his energies in the downtown Pensacola area – a then small foodie scene. One of the earlier downtown revitalization pioneers, Joe was pivotal on the growth of the downtown area, and continues to further the downtown scene advocating for Gallery Night and chairing the up & coming Palafox Wine Walk.

Tim “Motor-Vator” Williams


About The “Motor-Vator”. . .

The “Motor-Vator” is no ordinary man, which is evident

in his positive energy and confidence. People who know

him say his energy is contagious. For most of his

professional life, The “Motor-Vator” has been

passionate about helping those who are struggling in

their career, business and personal goals. He is a

mentor and Motor-Vator to many who have been

blessed to know him. His journey as a professional

speaker and Motor-Vator began in the automotive sales

industry 23 years ago. It is here where he has become a

top salesman and leader in the auto sales industry.

Early in his journey, he had a burning desire to be the

best and to succeed beyond the normal. The

“Motor-Vator” began putting a plan in place and

invested his time and energy in educating himself on

the many aspects of sales and leadership. His passion

for working his plan lead to him reaching the level of

success he has achieved today. Taking a quote from his

book, “failure is not an option for me”.





Joan Irby / Recruitment
Guardian ad Litem

Air Force brat from Atl. Went to the  University of Ky (go Blue) , Business owner in Atl,  Navarre/ Gulf Breeze area to raise my 3 kids the last 16 years and sell Real Estate.  A man came to my church 6 years ago to talk about GAL and I started volunteering.  I was so passionate about the program they offered me the Recruiting position 4 years ago.  Took me a long time to find my calling but incorporated my Passion for orphans and at risk children and my sales background to replicate myself to bring other advocates in.  

Guardian ad Litem standards were developed to inspire and empower volunteers and staff to say, “I am for the Child.”

“I am for the Child” is the theme for the GAL standards. I believe they reflect that we have listened to the children and young adults in foster care and that we heard their voices.

A Guardian ad Litem is so much more to a child than just their court advocate. A GAL volunteer often becomes a role model, mentor, educational surrogate, friend, confidant, and most important, a consistent caring person on whom the child can rely. The standards reflect this high level of empowerment and lay the foundation for guardians and staff to make an even greater difference in the lives of children.

“To the world you are one person, but to one person you are the world.”

As we approach 2015, our 35th anniversary, with the goal of more than 10,000 volunteers, I am looking forward to supporting our dedicated volunteers and staff who are there for the children and young adults not solely because it is their job, but because it’s their passion in life. This document is a living and evolving document with the sole purpose of allowing our volunteers and staff to advocate for a child’s best interest. I welcome your comments and thoughts to improve the standards.

Thanks for the important work each of you do for children. I value your commitment and dedication to ensure children’s voices are heard and children have someone in their corner fighting for them.

These standards will allow each of you to say unequivocally “I am for the child.”

Erik Hansen   – Realtor / Team Leader & Golf Committee Chairman
Hansen Real Estate Team at Keller Williams Gulf Coast — Cokesbury Church Golf Tournament


A little about me and my family: I am a true Pensacola native, and have lived only one other place in my entire life. In 2001, my wife (Angie) and I moved to Orlando to start college and life as a married couple. I jumped into real estate while I was still in college at the University of Central Florida in Orlando back in 2003. After a year learning the real estate business and finishing up at UCF, I joined up with Keller Williams Realty in East Orlando and began really building my business. I partnered up with a Team Leader which catapulted me to the top in a very short time period. In the summer of 2013, after being back in Pensacola since 2009, I jumped back into real estate. In January 2016, I rejoined Keller Williams Realty with my entire team. Since that summer of 2013, I have built a successful real estate team that consistently produces in the TOP 10 of real estate teams in Pensacola. We currently have 4 Buyer Specialists (Cathy Paulsen, Rusty Mack, Renee Decker and Jane Oberbeck), a full time Transaction Coordinator (Carly Murphy), Listing Coordinator (Angie Hansen), and a part time Runner (Janice Paulsen). The team approach gives a level of service unmatched by the average single agent. Our staff and Buyer Specialists have the skills and experience to handle all your real estate needs! In 2015, our team closed 90 transactions and are on track for 150 transactions in 2016.


Looking to purchase your first home or downsizing into a smaller home? We can help. Thinking about investing in real estate to build wealth and a retirement? We have the plan for you.

We offer a full service listing and marketing plan to get your home sold quickly, with the fewest problems and for the highest possible price. Selling real estate is a science and we have the system in place to get you the most money for your home!


In addition to being passionate about real estate, I love giving back to my community, traveling with the family to explore new destinations, watching football with friends in the fall, relaxing on Pensacola Beach in the summer, and occasionally playing (attempting to play) golf! My wife, son Peyton and I attend Cokesbury United Methodist Church here in Pensacola. I am the current Golf Tournament Committee Chariman and we recently raised over $10,000 for three local charities. My wife, Angie, is on the Board at Cokesbury Children’s Center, where our son attends pre-school. I am also a member of the Northeast Pensacola Sertoma Club, which raises over $50,000 for local charities every year at events such as HogFest in the Spring and Dragon Boat Festival in the summer. We have a ton of fun giving back to our community and want to teach our son the importance of faith, family and community involvement.

Tara Santosuosso / Chill Cryotherapy Pensacola

Tara Santosuosso started her business career as a software engineer, then took time out to raise her son Anthony. An avid tennis player and skier, Tara sustained a few injuries and had nagging aches and pains. While living in Dallas, she started using whole body cryotherapy for back and ankle injuries. Convinced that it helped her recovery, she looked for one around northwest Florida. But there was none close by. Chill Cryotherapy is the answer.

Tara’s husband Jeff has enjoyed a 25-year career working for some of the major international life sciences companies. With an MBA from Dartmouth and hands-on general management skills, he brings sound business practices and experiences to the team. An avid cyclist, runner, and skier, Jeff also uses cryotherapy for recovery and relief.

Tara and Jeff have lived in Pensacola since 2012 and are members of the Pensacola Chamber of Commerce.



Cryotherapy is a whole-body exposure to sub-zero temperatures used to promote the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response, release endorphins, reduce pain and promote overall health. Cryotherapy is not a medical procedure, but a non-invasive alternative for individuals seeking faster recovery and improved health.

We have selected what we believe is the highest quality unit on the market today. It is manufactured by Impact Cryotherapy Inc. The  unit was designed and is built in the United States. It is a unit we can stand behind.

The unit is currently being used by pro golfers, teams like the New Orleans Saints, New Orleans Pelicans, Tampa Bay Rays, Miami Marlins, and Boston Red Sox. Now the NCAA is turning to Cryotherapy. Impact Cryotherapy has units installed at  University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Wake Forest, just to name a few.

We are in the process of setting up our retail location in downtown Pensacola. We look forward to opening in January. See how Cryotherapy can improve your health and well being.

Is Whole Body Cryotherapy right for you? Do you want to:

 Reduce Recovery Time and Muscle Soreness

 Manage Persistent Pain & Inflammation

 Relieve Symptoms of Depression & Anxiety

 Increase Metabolism & Weight Loss
