You Matter Women’s Groups are communities of women who value authentic and empowered connection with themselves and others. At You Matter you get to relax, love yourself as you are, and open to your greatest gifts.
Every month we come together to enjoy community and to engage in a theme focused on personal growth, self-care, and community engagement. Our mission is to build positive impact in our world, one circle at a time.
These are curated locally by a cooperative community of women leaders and each group runs independently while gathering inspiration and ideas from one another.
At You Matter:
We practice unconditional Love.
We empower and take care of ourselves so that we can do the same for others.
We believe everyone has inherent value and gifts to offer the world.
We anchor to the heart.
We are stronger together.
We forgive each other and ourselves.
We accept responsibility for our actions and their impact on others.
We find power on the other side of our vulnerability.
We have fun. ;)
We take a stand.
We achieve our vision with grit and healthy endurance.
For those ready to take the next step of embodied training for choosing love over fear and amplifying your gifts, we offer the My Love Bomb Program every fall and early spring.

Dr. Lauren Clum has been serving the Oakland community as a chiropractor since 2007, helping primarily women dealing with chronic health challenges. She graduated from Sonoma State University with a degree in Business Administration, and from Life Chiropractic College West for her professional doctorate. She's completed extensive post-graduate training in upper cervical specific chiropractic, and has distinguished herself as an expert in her technique. In May of 2015, Lauren welcomed a precious baby girl, Kaiya, into her family. When Kaiya was about a year old, she was diagnosed with a rare neurogenetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome that resulted from a microdeletion on the 15th chromosome. With the variety of challenges that can arise for kids with Angelman Syndrome, Lauren and Kaiya were thrown into a brand new world that was quite intimidating on so many levels. Along the way, a few things happened that really shifted Lauren's role in her community. She started doing heart-centered work with Dr. Rhea Zimmerman Komarek and the My Love Bomb program, she shifted the focus of her practice to helping more kids with neurodevelopmental disorders and their families, and began connecting with women in her community that were looking for increased fulfillment, clarity and love in their own lives. She brings an extremely loving, personal perspective to all of her work now, and adores helping women and families! Connect directly to Lauren: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tami Bandy seeks to exude love and finds joy in encouraging others, which lead her to become a part of the You Matter community. She and her husband, Dr. Bo Bandy, fell in love with the colorful Ozark Mountains and decided to make their home in Branson, Missouri.
Tami spent most of her developmental years in Texas, although she was born in California and still has a deep love and appreciation for the beauty in those places. She has a degree in Psychology and several hours towards her masters in counseling. Immediately after college, she landed in the social work realm working for a private foster care agency, where she wore a wide array of hats. All of those experiences shaped her into who she is today.
Tami’s path took a sharp turn in 2005 when she discovered a deep love of Chiropractic and the philosophy of living a connected life. She and her husband created Victory Chiropractic in 2010, a place that empowers the young & young at heart to acknowledge and trust the Innate Intelligence that exists within all of us. Since it’s inception, she has been an integral part in running Victory, alongside her awesome her husband.
She is excited to bring a You Matter group to her area. She sees it as a landing place for women to connect to their hearts and live from a place of love, thereby impacting her community and world through The Love Bomb. Connect directly with Tami: YouMatterOzarks@gmail.com
