I’ve wanted to interview Jessica Janzen for quite some time, but I’ll admit, I was a bit intimidated. Not because Jess isn’t the most welcoming human being you’ve ever met – she is – but because this is a woman on a mission. If you don’t know her story, Jessica’s life changed dramatically when her […]

Well, we’re living in interesting times… the understatement of the year. I know I personally never expected any of this, self-isolation or social distancing, when I first heard of the coronavirus. The world has changed and it’s going to be a milestone we always remember. BUT, I don’t want us to only remember it for […]
What a world we’re living in, hey? This is not quite the intro I was planning to write for our episode with the incredible Amanda Muse, but here we are. First and foremost, I want to say I hope you are well and keeping yourself and your loved ones safe. I know staying home feels […]
Amy Stubbs, the co-creator of many of the stress less programs, is back on the podcast for the second time. Her original episode was one of our most downloaded.

The reason this organization came to be is a fascinating one, and I don’t want to spoil it so you’ll have to listen! Chantel […]
You guys, I’m a little behind on the podcast for which I can only apologize. February has been a busy and truly rewarding month as I’ve travelled across Alberta speaking with teachers about stress reduction strategies. It has also meant that I could interview folks who are outside of Calgary… in person! One such person […]
I’ve been thinking a lot this week about how after surgery they almost always want you to walk down the corridor. Even if you’re in major discomfort and walking is the last thing you want to do, medical staff will ensure that you walk. And there’s a really good reason for this. When you walk, […]
This week on the podcast I’m joined by one of the most resilient women I’ve met – Katrina High. Katrina came on my radar on Instagram and she’s so honest and vulnerable in sharing her experience with endometriosis and infertility. Her journey to advocate for herself has been so powerful. She shares some of her […]
I first met Joelle Tomlinson when I did a segment with her on CTV Calgary’s Morning Show. She is such a welcoming human being, always makes you feel comfortable, and rocks her role as morning co-anchor. We talk in this episode about Joelle’s experience as an adopted child in a white family. She shares her […]
