Why would anyone run 50 miles by choice? Seven years ago, whilst working in a Sports Medicine Clinic in London, England, Jenn was struck by the curiosity and intrigue about the wild and wacky World of UltraRunning. Being an experimental learner, she went on a journey to discover that answer for herself. In the process, she rediscovered her inner strength and the power of the lessons learned within that journey.
Jenn is a multi-passionate, world traveler, intrigued with human movement and psychology. Her daily mantra is: "Make best use of the time you have left", focusing on the present, and living life to the fullest. She's most exhilarated on the open road in her 2003 Honda Civic, affectionately referred to as "Cindi", or at the airport awaiting a flight to somewhere new.

STEPHANIE VAN DE VEN - Featured Speaker at #momondaysKW - November 21st, 2016. Get tickets now! Click here.
Stephanie found out, at around 5 years old, that she was adopted. Not knowing what this really meant but knowing that she always felt different from her family, was difficult to navigate. Although she had a very loving family, she struggled with anger, depression and anxiety over the years without any way of coping and dealing. Knowing what little she did about her birth Mother, but knowing that she was very young & irresponsible when she gave birth, Steph made it her silent mission to never turn out like her. It wasn't until just recently that she found her birth family AND herself- but not in the way you might expect.
Steph is a single Mama, a published children's book Author, a Kids Yoga, Meditation & Mindfulness Coach and a positive fireball who brings the joy wherever she goes.

Melvin Murray has been a part of the music industry for over 7 years now, accomplishing his goals one at a time. Starting his career at 19 with his first tour in the U.K he quickly became a well known musician. Playing drums to stage tech for bands such as, Abandon All Ships, Highs, Three Crowns, and Walk Off The Earth. With his burning desire for success this is just a small chapter of his story.
Power through Passion is a story of struggle, failure, sacrifice, passion, love, and success in the early years of a young musician's career. This is a deeper look at a dream worth fighting for, a dream that has not yet fully flourished. From the rise to success, to a plummeting fall. From the van to the tour bus, and back to the Van. From the loss of relationships, to the witness of true love and sacrifice. From the beginning of the war to the on going battle. The one thing that keeps the young artist going is the power through passion and a dream worth fighting for.

And it is okay to not be okay.
