Meet Our Team

Alive and Free Team

Our team is a very special group of individuals. Most of us have gone through the program ourselves and have been personally impacted by the Alive and Free culture. We believe in emotional health and spiritual breakthrough for everyone. We all love each other and we all press into our own emotional health journeys. Please take some time to see who we are below.

Samantha Robbins

CEO, President

“I’m wildly in love with Jesus, my husband, and my pup Mosley.

If I could do one thing with my life it would be removing the emotional blocks and walls that disconnect people from the father, themselves, and the people they love. I believe that once those blocks/walls from past pain are healed that we can all live in the fullness God created us for. I want to see men and women come alive and thrive in this life.

I’m all about childlike wonder, connection, adventure, and learning to live life from the overflow. When I’m not working with our Alive & Free team, creating content, and working with our amazing clients… I’m working out, climbing mountains, snorkeling and surfing, and cooking healthy meals before I chase that days sunset. “

Spencer Robbins

CEO, President

I love Sammi and love business, and have gone through an amazing journey of heart healing myself, which empowers me for giving that to others.

Lead Support Coach

“With about 7 years of intentional emotional healing experience, I find passion in giving away the tools and lessons I’ve gained. I’m an empowerer and coach of other hungry women walking out their beautiful, individual journey of unlocking the fullness of all they have access to in Christ. When I’m not kickin’ back with Jesus watching him set women free, I love to travel, snuggle my pup, and hangout at breweries and bonfires with my friends – enjoying the beautiful life right in front of me.”

Miriam is wife to Col (34 years), mother of five and grandmother to one!! Her passion is to see women express their true beauty from the inside out and for them to be valued, treasured and loved for who they truly are.

Supporting women break unhealthy cycles of relationship with themselves and others to become the beautiful soul they were created to be at Alive and Free is a privilege and a thrill.

Jessie Duca

Support Coach

Jessie connected with Alive and Free back in April of 2019 as a client herself. For years she has been pursuing God and His goodness in her life. There were still areas of her life she felt stuck in such as shame around her past, relationship with men, codependency, and loving herself well. During her time with Alive and Free she had radical freedom and healing that allowed her to break free of fear, shame, and be connected to herself, God, others and even a man she recently married! She now loves to see other women get free from areas in their lives they feel stuck in. It brings her joy to work for a company like A&F that cares not only about our spiritual connection with God, but our connection to ourselves and how we can truly see God in everything. In her free time you’ll find Jessie singing, being childlike in nature, creating and spending quality time with the people she loves!

Hi! My name is Alexis Ricketts and I am the Client Success Representative. I am a wife to the most amazing husband, and a mother, two roles that I absolutely love! I grew up in Guatemala, which is still one of my most favorite places, but currently live in Chattanooga, TN. I love to travel and experience new cultures, and coffee is my love language!

Brie Aronson

Onboarding & Support Coach

Through A&F I realized I am not a project needing to be fixed, but a heart that’s looking for love. I’ve experienced so much gentleness and relief in my relationship with God and truly believe the Father, Son, and Spirit are better than we know. I love holding space for people and watching the lights come on to how much they are loved!
