About Our Founder

I'm Norma C. Cardona, founder of Cultiva Greatness LLC, and my journey is all about transformation—from battling anxiety and depression to embracing a life of empowerment and resilience. I've walked the paths you're on, feeling a soul wound and seeking change. Through self-awareness and discovering the impacts of stress on the brain, I found my way from merely surviving to truly thriving. Cultiva Greatness is born from this personal revolution, rooted in my deep connection to underestimated communities, and my heritage as a daughter of Mexican immigrants.
