Estrellita Gonzalez - Feature member April 2019
 Our April Speaker will be The Queen of Clean! She will be speaking on 10 Ways to Clean up Your Life. Estrellita owns and operates Derma Bright Clinic and Holistica Wellness, a skin care clinic and wellness center on the west side of Vancouver. With a BBA in HR Management, she spent 15 years working and consulting in the areas of HR and Marketing prior to starting her small business which has been operating since 2012. It began as a result of a health scare she had that involved lead and skincare/beauty products.  Since then Estrellita has written 2 books, and writes and speaks on wellness. In 2017 she launched her alter ego “The Queen of Living Clean” and offers workshops; her topics include "Face Your Acne", a one-hour talk for teens, as well as "Clean up your life" and "How well is your being". These are workshops designed to outline ways to mitigate the toxic load on our bodies. She also has an online store which markets clean skincare products.  Estrellita lives in Vancouver and is a single co-parent to a teen son. In 2017 she entered politics and is now a 2-term current Vancouver School Board Trustee, having run with the Green Party and placing second overall in October’s election. Her top values are health, wellbeing, community and the environment. As a scuba diver she saw what was happening to our oceans. Getting involved in politics is just one way we can have an impact.  Estrellita’s mission in life is to help people be the best version of themselves by taking control of their health and wellness. By being proactive, we can live long, healthy and fruitful lives! Get to Know her better and subscribe on Youtube to get to know our members better!

Gina Best - What does normal mean to you?
 What does normal mean to you?   I love people who challenge this and who push me to keep doing this. I came from a town where, settle down, have kids, stay married forever was a " thing" I failed, I have long since let go of this but it is so much a part of what shaped me.  Gina is my guest today and she is pushing boundaries, making me thing about how comfortable I have got in my new normal!  it was great getting to know a little more about this woman, speaker, and a women who gets shit done!!!   In Gina's words..  What does normal mean to you?  "This is a question that comes up all the time and, depending on who you are, how old you are and how you were raised, the answer differs. We use the word normal all the time yet none of us are. We let what others think normal is influence so many parts of our life.     How does it influence your life and the bigger question, how do you let it mess with you?  Is following the guidelines of “normal” holding you back? Maybe it is time to take stock and see what it’s all about.  Shift is in the air – what are you going to do about it?"  If you want to hear her live, check come out to The Ladies Meeting live and in person at Catch up later,  Anyssa Jane!
