Thank you for visiting my new website for Power Source for Women. It marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter of my life, as I celebrate my new book, my new training programs and formats, and my commitment to the health, fitness, and spirituality of women and girls around the world.

As my journey continues, my new website highlights the 7 PASSIONS of my life today:

Writing books

Love Your Body…Embrace Your Life! is the 6th book I have written and the 2nd book I have co-authored with Theresa Dugwell on women’s health, fitness, nutrition, and spirituality.

Teaching and training

I am celebrating over 20 years as a Marketing Instructor at the University of Toronto’s School for Continuing Studies.

Speaking and inspiring

A highlight of my speaking career was being featured as a speaker at an International Women’s Day event in Jaipur, India in 2015.


I have completed 30 races over the past 10 years, including two full Marathons at 61 and 63 (7 ½ hours of walking for each event!).


As a tour leader for the Women’s Travel Network, I co-led trips to Provence, France and to India in 2014 and 2015. I will co-lead another trip to Provence with Patricia Sands in June, 2017.


wife, mother, and grandmother – all play a major part in my life.


I love to mentor young women starting a business, as well as women of all ages as they make a commitment to their bodies, fitness and health.
