A Sacred Journey
Lesley Cressman, Founder
I am a sister, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and wife...
I am honoured to work and sharing the importance moments in the lives of women! The empowerment of women without devaluing men, in fact it brings balance to the sexes. As a mother of two women and two young men, I believe it is our greatest gift we can bestow upon our children and our society is the gift of equality and love.
