Address from our Founder: Farrah La Ronde-Hutchison, Environmental Scientist
This year we are celebrating 9 years of hosting our Women's Wellness Conference. A safe place for women to Connect, Empower and Educate each other on living healthier happier lives. We Empower Women to love who they are while embracing their journey of LIFE. Our theme this year: Embrace Your Story: celebrates our differences, diversities and experiences. They have made us stronger. Let's respect and support each other.
Often we all are embarrassed, ashamed or angry at the different paths our lives may have taken. The so called set backs are actually just lessons, giving us the tools required to remain in gratitude for the gift of life. We are all on different parts of our journey to Optimum Wellness.
Come enjoy a fun filled day of informative seminars, meet industry health and business professionals, health and business coaches, top speakers of their fields, meet medical and naturopathic doctors, while networking with other diverse selection of Exhibitors and Authors. We welcome you to join us as we Empower Women to Live! The conference will be hosted by our Founder this year.
Peace, Health and Love
