Teresa Syms learned early on not to depend on anyone. Born crippled into a dysfunctional, abusive family, she found life unbearable. After an attempted suicide in her teens, Teresa thought marriage was her escape. It wasn't. At 43 she made a massive life change. She went to college, married a great man and landed her dream job. Eight months later she faced death head on. Now at 56, Teresa has healed her past through writing and motivates other people to break the cycle of abuse.
Teresa is an Author & Empowering Coach. Facing death twice, Teresa heard the words, “You’re Not Finished Here Yet.” Now armed with understanding from a life time of abuse and trauma, Teresa empowers women to break their silence and step into a life of strength and courage. She is living proof that through courage, determination and a strong belief, you can give yourself a brilliant future.

Annette was born and raised in the KW area. Her journey in life has provided many experiences and what some may call, adventures. She has felt that sometimes, life has given her the short end of the stick. Born to immigrant parents, who worked hard to provide for their family, Annette always felt there was something different about her. She always tried to fit in, but never felt “part of”. In 1994, the job she thought that she would work at until late in life, was gone. What was she to do now? Her entire life changed that frightful morning in March of 1994.
Annette is a Holistic Practitioner and owner of Subtle Energies. She is a registered reflexologist, licensed Spiritual Healer, certified Sound Coach, NLP practitioner and Reiki Master/Energy Worker. She is a proud mother of two teenage sons and loves cats. She enjoys walking near water, preferably not puddles, and spending time in nature.

Penny Jamieson has seen devastation first hand from Hurricane Katrina in 2005. When she arrived in Youngsville, La. with her husband, George in a transport truck from Canada, the head volunteer greeted them with tears of joy. While watching the 53' trailer being unloaded with donations, the volunteers were happy to see what others could do to help them in their time of need. They were amazed at how everything was organized for them just to hand out to the people recovering from Hurricane Katrina. This journey for Penny was just in the making.
We all watched the devastation that Hurricane Katrina left behind in New Orleans and Penny just knew she would be on a mission to help our neighbours. Her journey took 6 weeks to complete by collecting items from clothes to cleaning supplies, sorting, labeling, packaging and even delivering to Youngesville, La. Little did she know, from that experience that her real journey would begin.
