The eyes are the windows to the soul- over 40 years I have seen millions of these souls and Optometry has allowed me to heal a body from the organic to the inner self- when you see a new world - "seeing is believing" that all is possible. Who could ask for anything better?

Good People, Good Words

I enrolled in Canadian Business Chicks because I connected with the organizational values: Courage, Confidence, Commitment, and Integrity – and enjoyed the positive energy of the ladies attending. Monica is building a needed collaboration point with The Nest for women with an abundant mindset who value authentic conversations and alliances, while having fun and giving back. As my focus is Coaching Visionary women with a social enterprise element in their business, I felt a strong connection to several of the powerful women members, who are clearly disrupting traditional business models, and stepping into new levels of courageous success while supporting other women. This evolved into our collaborative relationship where I support (Chair) Canadian Business Chicks Authentic Mentorship Program - helping members expand their business success even further. Win-Win!

I've been a member for the last year and what I love is that it is more than networking. The Nest is a community that has a special quality because of Monica's vision and her commitment to her powerful ideas. All women are welcome, and that's how I feel every time I go to a Breaky or special event. I've met heart-centered people in business from all walks of life and made high-quality connections.

Women of Inspiration for me is really something that has walked the road of challenges and joys, and to share that with others in their lives, just really to foster growth and community amongst each other. I’m excited to be part of this event that really was doing that and a celebration of these incredible women in Calgary.
