What inspired you to apply for the Lace Brick Design Trailblazer Ambassador Search?

I only started Instagram in the spring of 2017 when I got my dog Henry. I am not exactly sure how LBD showed up on my feed, but what caught my eye was the photography of these adventurous women with resonating, cute sayings, such as Campfire Hair Don't Care?! Then I checked out your website and other Instagram photos and fell in love with the description of your brand and the idea of bringing women together through #ponytailposse. I find many wild, free, fearless females spend a lot of time alone and sometimes may feel alone in their quest for more life, more depth, more adventure, more creativity, etc, etc.! All of a sudden through social media, I find a company that is dedicating themselves to creating a brand for this type of woman! I not only want to be apart of helping other like-minded individuals come together through this brand, but also inspire others to find more of their wildness. I am all in

Tell us one interesting quirk about yourself? A party trick, a fascinating story from your life, something that sets you apart and makes you, YOU!

What sets me apart is my versatility. I grew up in a small town on a farm, but left home to live with a billet family when I was 14 to play competitive hockey in the city. Starting so young living a dual life has developed so many sides and complexities to my person! Country vs City. Mountain vs ocean. Numbers, spreadsheets, and business vs crafting, sewing, lace, and frills. Competitive male hockey, jiu jitsu, and mma training vs yoga, country swing dancing, and meditation. I find interests and parts of myself to explore when I go through these different phases of yin and yang. This makes it very hard for a man to keep up!!

Do you have a favorite recipe, playlist, hike restaurant, or go-to secret gem where you live? Tell us about it!

My secret gem is the side of a river valley 8 hours north west of Calgary in the Peace Country. I come from a long line of farmers, so I grew up farming this land. Ever since I was a little girl, I have been saying, "One day I am going to buy this." 20 years later, it happened. Pure river valley, nature, northern lights, fresh water creek, hill sides of wild saskatoons, trails, beaver ponds. My family and I put a cabin on this piece of land this summer and this place has truly allowed to settle in as my sanctuary. Any weight that has been resting on your shoulders can finally lift.

What does being a fearless female mean to you?

The few things that come to mind first on what it means to be a fearless female is:

  • Always find new ways to challenge yourself, something new to explore, a new book, a new concept, a new friend never let your water go stale
  • Listen to your heart and be courageous enough to take action. Accept that what is right for you today may not be right for you tomorrow (or vice versa), but giving yourself the freedom and grace to change and grow!
  • Be unapologetically YOU! I used to beat myself up a lot for my introverted tendencies of the ways I need to recharge (read a book, spend time alone, spend time in nature alone) and for the things that always drained me (parties, large groups of people, drinking, gossip). I felt like there was something wrong with me! It has taken me time to accept this is the way I am, which has allowed me to be more confident in my fearless female!

We know you probably have more than one buuuuutttt tell us your fave Lace Brick Design good and why you just LOVE it so much!

There is definitely a lot to choose from buuuuutttttttt what stands out the most is the adventure bags! They are so unique, colorful, and good quality! It is only a matter of time before I have one ready to go on my next adventure with me on!

I co-run a hiking group, Alberta Adventure Girls, with fellow Trailblazer Ambassador, Amanda McNally. We LOVE supporting local and do a Local Love post every Wednesday where we feature a small business from Alberta

My absolute favourite hike is Wapta Falls in Yoho National Park. It's a bit of a drive from Calgary however, the scenery on the way is stunning and the waterfall is well worth the trip!

What does being a fearless femalemean to you?

A Fearless Female is someone who isn't afraid to be herself. She stands up for what she believes in, treats others with kindness, and pushes herself outside of her comfort zone. She does what she loves on a constant basis and is continuously striving to better her life in every way possible.

Ooo, that's a hard one! I guess it's my Lace Brick Design toque in baby blue. The material is SUPER soft and doesn't make my head itch like other toques perfect to hike and get sweaty in

All of the strong empowering women on the Lace Brick Design team! Ive always loved the image that Lace Brick Design portrays, strength and empowerment along with a love of exploration and adventure. When the opportunity to become a trailblazer arose, I believed my adventurous passion and outdoor lifestyle would fit well within the team and I couldn't wait to apply!

Growing up I always use to find and rescue injured animals and bring them home. Fortunately my mom happened to be good friends with someone who ran an animal rehabilitation center so they were taken proper care of after I delivered them to her. I brought home anything from ducklings, crows, squirrels, chipmunks, turtles and my all time favourite and most recent, a horse. Surprisingly the horse was the only rescue I was allowed to keep as my responsibility. Prior to this, we already owned two other horses so Cocoa (my rescue) fit in well! We built trust and trained together and eventually we were two peas in a pod! All in all, I'm very grateful for parents who supported my compassionate loving heart and let me bring home strange injured animals. I'm sure this helped me grow into the animal loving individual I am today.

I grew up in a small town of approximately 3000 people so as kids we were always out riding bikes and finding new places to explore. One of our towns hidden gems is a series of natural waterfalls that occur on a stream about 5 minutes out of town! You hike for 10 minutes through the cedar forest to find 4 perfectly carved smooth waterfalls that drop into large circular pools. It's a great way to spend a hot summers day refreshing in the beauty of British Columbia. Locals hope to keep this spot a secret, but if you're lucky you might be able to hear through the grapevine where to find this little paradise.
What does being a fearless female mean to you?
A fearless female to me means someone who can face any challenge head on, who's passion burns brighter than their fears. To be able to stand with confidence and strength in everything you do and believe in. She would glow with flames of inspiration and burn with the fire of courage. Proverbs 31:25 says she is clothed with strength and dignity and laughs without fear of the future another perfect depiction of what I believe a fearless female is.

My favourite Lace Brick Design good is the obsidian arrow head necklace! It' something you could pair with an everyday outfit or even a little black dress. With its simplicity and subtle gold flare it adds an earthy wild look with ease to an already adventurous outfit. Absolutely stunning!

What inspired you to apply for the Lace Brick Design Trailblazer ambassador search?
I've always loved the Lace Brick Design's incredible vibe on Instagram. I've enjoyed following their stories and feed. A friend of mine had encouraged me to apply, she thought it would be a perfect fit for me. I love the outdoor lifestyle and seeking adventure in every day life. I loved everything you represent. I thought to myself how incredible it would be to be apart of this amazing tribe. So I took a leap of faith and put myself out there and applied with no regrets.

Tell us one quirk about yourself. A party trick, a fascinating story from your life, something that sets you apart and makes you, YOU.

I'm a young mom of 4 beautiful children. I love the adventure lifestyle, from hiking to trail running to walks in the park to enjoying a latte at the local cafe. I'm a Starbucks lover and I love coffee.  I always love to seek adventure and most of all I love to bring my family along. There's something about being lost on a trail with the ones you love, the connection is more real. Its so rejuvenating. There we can just be us. Family time so important to me.

Do you have a favourite recipe, playlist, restaurant, or secret go to gem where you live? Tell us about it.

I love too find new coffee shops, and I was so excited to hear that a new coffee shop serving Starbucks was coming to Didsbury. Its called The 582 CAFE! Its super trendy and a great little place to meet up with some girlfriends or if you just needed some "me time" I fully approve of their Lattes!

What does being a fearless female mean to you?

A fearless female is a women who is not afraid to be her authentic self. She is strong, confident and has a gentle humbling spirit. Like a warrior she empowers other women to be exactly who they are. She is not afraid to stand out or be different. She's a leader of the pack.

We know you probably have more then one, but tell us your favourite Lace Brick Design good and why you just love it so much!

I'm in love with the Mugs!! I love mountains and adventure and coffee! for me sharing a good cup of coffee in a great mug with a good friend is always a  top priority. We'd be sharing stories of our adventures or planning more.

I smile a lot, like almost too much, but I don't think you can ever smile too much! You can rarely find me without a smile on my face. Growing up people would call me smiley. :) I also absolutely LOVE yoga! I am a yogi at heart.

Do you have a favourite recipe, playlist, hike, restaurant, or go-to secret gem where you live? Tell us all about it!

My go to favorite gem in Olds where I live is Cocoa Tree Bake Shoppe it is to die for! The cupcakes, London fogs, macarons! Another secret gem is the Hayloft in Airdrie it is my favorite restaurant. I also make a killer spinach dip!

What does being a fearless femalemean to you?

Being a fearless female means supporting and encouraging each other, and standing up for what you believe in. It means going after what you truly want in life and not stopping until it is a reality and you are living your dreams.?I figure, if a girl wants to be a legend, she should just go ahead and be one Calamity Jane

The iconic Alpine Necklace  to me it just describes Alberta and how lucky we are to have the mountains in our backyard.
