I believe happiness is a conscious choice that each robustly happy person makes. It isn't what happens to you that makes you happy, it's how you respond to it.


My Story

I was a very happy person for the first thirty years of my life. That doesn't mean my life was perfect, but I knew everything would work out for me, and it always did. When I was in my late twenties, I met a man while I was in England and decided after ten weeks he was the man for me. We were married a few months later and I moved away from Canada to start a new adventure.

Things started out well, but slowly I found being away from my family, my friends, my career, and my culture to take its toll on me. This was almost thirty years ago, so staying in touch was much more of a challenge, and I found myself falling into a deep pit of suicidal depression. I didn't know what had made me happy, so I didn't know how to find it again.

I was saved by a stroke of fate. I found that I was pregnant. It wasn't just about me anymore. I clawed my way out of that darkness, but I lived many years when I was just surviving. I wanted more for my children, so I started to search for ways to ensure they never experienced what I was going through. This lead me to research what science had discovered about wellbeing. 

This new knowledge put me on my path to boosing the wellbeing of the world by sharing my eight precepts of robust happiness. This is my term for positivity that can withstand challenge and change.


I believe the best way to teach children to be happy is by modelling it. They learn by observing the significant adults in their lives, so it is time for us to make sure we are modelling robust happiness.


Where I've Been Featured, and Who I've Work With



I believe there is a difference between fragile and robust happiness. Fragile happiness is easily fragmented when your life encounters difficulties. Robust happiness is a mindset, a way of life; it can withstand challenge and change.

Reen is an amazing speaker.  She is the best M.C. I have seen. She has a very unique ability to entertain, educate, inspire, and lead an event with grace and ease. It is a gift.  Every event I have attended with Reen was a huge success.... largely because of her.
