To qualify, your leading mom must be a mother – of any age – who lives in Metro Vancouver and is able to attend the Leading Moms event on September 26, 2014.

Congratulations to Wendy Armbruster Bell!
Inspired by her own experiences as a mom (to Antonia, nine, and Michaela, seven) Wendy Armbruster Bell founded Snugabell Mom and Baby Gear with a mission “to support the beauty of breastfeeding”. The mamas she has encountered since launching Snugabell (especially those pumping for preemies and multiples) inspired her to createPump Across America, a touching video montage celebrating real moms from every state across the USA. The release of the video coincided with the launch of theSnugabell “Milk Money” grant program, which provides monthly cash grants to local breastfeeding advocacy groups. Also coming down the pipeline is a project supporting moms with babies in the NICU.
Our warmest thanks to Painted Boat Resort Spa Marina for sponsoring the Leading Mom Award.Post Views: 218

Louise Green is a globally recognized voice at the forefront of the body advocacy movement. Louise is a certified fitness professional as well as a successful plus size athlete. She empowers athletes of all shapes and sizes in a culture that generally dominates one ideal.
Green, is not only the founder of Body Exchange (with 6 locations in Canada) but also a writer, host of international wellness retreats and an advocate with a comprehensive continental reach.
Green’s unflinching and unapologetic questioning of the way we view plus-size athleticism is also the catalyst for her groundbreaking book, “Limitless” which will be launched in 2015.
Green has been published internationally on platforms such as The New York Times, UK’s Daily Mail, Huffington Post and XOJane. She has also pitched her business concept on CBC’s Dragon’s Den and was a highly heralded speaker at the first annual Body Love Conference in Tucson, Arizona.
Green ignites the change we wish to see.Post Views: 373
