About Kaileen Elise.jpg

I'm Kaileen Elise Sues, a writer and mama in pursuit of simple joys and magical vibes. I am the co-host of That’s Pretty Woo, a weekly podcast with conversations about life, beauty, and magic. I’m also the creator of Celebrate Cultivate, an online space that helps participants appreciate the magic in everyday life.

I live in sunny Austin, Texas with my husband and our two babes. I collect inspiration and write to-do lists. You can connect with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, and Goodreads.

A little about my background, I graduated cum laude from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, where I competed on the swim team and earned a degree in Education. In 2007, I moved to San Francisco to pursue an opportunity in software sales. My competitive nature and penchant for helping others led to a six-year stint in corporate recruiting. In that time, I helped hire 400+ employees for high-growth startups.

I started this website in 2009 as a creative break from my corporate day job. In 2010, I helped lead an end-of-year blogging project called Reverb that grew from zero to over 4,000 participants in one month. Several years later, my father and I launched Happy Living, a health and wellness company, and we co-authored a book titled The Belief Roadmap.

Each step of the way, my focus has remained on connecting with others and sharing inspiration.
