Somœtic™, LLC, is a joint venture between Isabella “Boo” Martin, MEd, and Colton Seale, MA, two pioneering educators in their respective fields.

Boo Martin

Boo Martin is a visionary, master horsewoman, and highly-regarded community and team leader who has taught and inspired thousands of groups and individuals through the camps, retreats and trainings held at her historic Stepping Stones Farm in Temple, NH. She is the Founder and former Executive Director of the award-winning nonprofit, Touchstone Farm, as well as Horse Power Instructor Training School.  Boo currently consults in strategic planning and fundraising for other nonprofit organizations, plus continues to empower clients through her newest venture, Wisdom Horse, LLC, which offers unmounted experiential equine education.

The Equine Assisted Learning sessions at Somœtic™ are led by Boo and are the outcome of her training and accreditation through the E3A as a Certified Equine Facilitator.  Building upon the Clifton Strength-Based Leadership Model, she and her horses help clients tap into their natural talents and innate abilities through dynamic group interactions, designed to strengthen self-awareness and enhance teamwork.  Boo holds a Master of Education in Organization and Management from Antioch University, which further informs her natural ability to connect with teams and individuals to illuminate how learnings in the arena can be directly applied back at the office.

Colton Seale

Colton Seale is also a visionary, scholar and highly-decorated Retired FBI Agent who led or was part of elite counter-terrorrism teams deployed to mission-critical regions around the world.  He was directly involved in high-stakes investigations involving our national security and instrumental in the development of an evidence-based interview and interrogation methodology, which he has taught to thousands of intelligence officers, law enforcement, and military in the US and overseas.  In retirement, Colton has tailored this training program into his consultancy, Pyxis Academy, LLC, to continue his work with government agencies and the private sector alike.

The Synched Communications Methodology sessions, led by Colton, are an evidence-based and practical application of interpersonal communication techniques, the core of which explains how to establish, build and maintain rapport in both one-on-one and team settings —which is as essential in the corporate environment as in the intelligence community.  He worked directly with the academics and scientists who developed the behavioral models, synthesized their findings, and offers the latest in research to clients through his interactive and inclusive teaching style.  Colton is a Certified Professional Coach, received his Masters Degree from the University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy and had an early career in the corporate world at Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), giving him additional insight into the dynamics of effective work groups.
