- Welcome to FireFly Retreats
Carrie Lehtonen's second chance at life came at 31 years old when a blood clot in her coronary artery resulted in a heart attack. As a healthy triathlete in the prime of her life, Carrie was the last person anyone would suspect of having heart disease.
After 18 years working in the corporate world, Carrie chose to pursue a second career in wellness so she could help people find their path to better health and happiness. Carrie is committed to reducing the impact of heart disease, and loves seeing people light up when they learn something new, challenge themselves beyond what they think they are capable of, and tap into their passion.
Carrie created Firefly because she believes that what the world needs most is for each person to uncover their passion and live an inspired life. We all have a unique gift, and it's Carrie's mission to help you ignite your inner light so that you can shine!
