Diary | Boobyball Mini Vancouver 2017

I’ve been to my fair share of fundraising events. Heck, I’ve thrown my fair share of fundraising events. But I’d never been to one geared specifically for kids. And I think the idea is genius. Rethink Breast Cancer threw an enchanted forest-themed event for the Boobyball Mini, which is, as you guessed, geared to the […]

Get Involved | Variety BC’s One Night in Monte Carlo Gala

When I was backpacking through Europe during undergrad, I tried to get into a very swanky casino in Monte Carlo. And was denied. The security guard looked my friend and I up and down, zeroed in on our flip flops (which had trod more hostel floors than he could have known) and gave us the boot. […]

Get involved | Variety BC’s One Night in Monte Carlo Gala

Here’s a serious question for you: If you could be any princess, who would you be? Kate Middleton? Elsa from Frozen? I’d choose Charlotte of Monaco. The woman is pure glamour (she’s Grace Kelly’s granddaughter after all), and seems to live a life of galas, yachts and horseback riding. Why do I ask? (Aside from, you know…general curiosity?) […]

Thank you!

Y’all are a generous bunch. Thanks to you, we raised a whopping $6,250,016 for BC Easter Seals at Timmy’s Christmas Telethon this year. THANK YOU!!! And thank you, Team Easter Seals for having me again this year! I always have so much fun.

Tune In | Timmy’s Telethon!

I’ve been working a lot with Easter Seals this year — at woman2warrior and, as evidenced by the picture above, at their terrifyingly terrifying Drop Zone. It’s a nausea-inducing rappel down the side of an office building in downtown Vancouver. Which, if you actually look over the edge, has a beautiful view of the water, […]

Get Involved | Dress for Success

They always say you should dress for the job you want. But what if you don’t have the means to? That’s where Dress for Success comes in. The Vancouver chapter alone served more than 2,000 disadvantaged women last year. And they did more than dress them for interviews; they provided career coaching, interview prep, resumé polishing […]

Interview | TEDxVancouver Speaker: Treana Peake of Obakki

TEDxVancouver is one of those events where you leave feeling inspired, energized and just a little exhausted. It’s like a full day of school taught by your favourite professors; at the end of it your brain is buzzing. And this year it’s going to be bigger than ever. Among the lineup of speakers are lululemon […]

The Drop Zone!

I am terrified of heights. So, so terrified of heights. And the thought of doing rappelling off a 20-storey high rise makes me nauseous. But I try to live by the law of Tina Fey: “Say yes and you’ll figure it out afterward.” So when my friends at Easter Seals asked if I wanted to […]

The weekend of woman2warrior

You waded through a giant ice bath, climbed a quarter pipe in the rain, and sipped mimosas in the name of fundraising. I was there to talk about it and The Province was there to capture it all on film. This weekend’s woman2warrior obstacle race benefitting BC Easter Seals Camps could not have been more […]
