Thanks for visiting my website and blog….
After writing a simple book to my kids about my philosophies on life, I realized I better practice what I preach so I leaped into the abyss – at least that’s what it’s felt like. (still does most of the time)

I wanted pink work boots so I could paint houses (like Debbie Travis) and look like the girly girl I am. I managed to design 30 pairs of pink (and blue, red, green, tan and black) work boots. Then I sold them to the largest retailers in Canada. Now we are selling an entire collection of safety gear to the largest retailers in the USA.

Throughout the journey I have wanted to quit, I have cried, heart pounding out my neck, my stomach has ached. I have persevered because I wanted to jump with no regrets. I have never been scared to fail. I did want to learn how to succeed in life (not business.) I have lost and gained relationships. In the process, I have figured out who I am wholeheartedly. My kids excel in everything they do and are ridiculously happy. My husband and I have learned how to communicate as I hit the panic button and he comes to my rescue. We all need someone to come to the rescue.

I will be writing, sharing my experiences; the good, the bad and the ugly. I will share my stories because I think we all feel better knowing we are in this together and more similar than we are different. I have sold to the largest retailers in the world, lost an exclusivity deal with a major retailer (now out of business), I have sold my dream and vision to one of the best retailers in Canada; Marks Work Wearhouse. I have inked a deal with a dragon and billionaire; W Brett Wilson. I have launched in the US. I have sold products that keep women safe on the inside and out. I have created a brand with impact, strength and sales. I have jumped wholeheartedly. I found my moxie… and I want you to find yours too.


THANK YOU to all the amazing women in my life. You have inspired me, saved me, built me, challenged me and mentored me. More importantly, you show my daughter an example of leadership, intellect, courage, kindness and love.
Happy International Women's Day
