Welcome to Chase Wild Hearts

I wanted to share the stories of the inspiring women who I've had the privilege of meeting along my own journey of self discovery. These women were breaking free from the societal expectations/pressures of a women's life. It was evident to me that living your dream life and doing what you love is possible.
