It is through our conversations and our realness that we find ourselves having a-ha moment. As we say we want our conversations to be that chicken noodle soup kind of good...something that sticks to the bones and fills your soul. Join us in our next conversations.

Girl Get A Doula with Shenice Peterson, LMT RHT
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, Registered Hypnotherapist and Owner of Spokane Prenatal Massage. I am a mother to 4 children, who were the driving force for starting my own business. I wanted and needed more time with my children and to have the flexibility of creating my own schedule. I also wanted to be the example to them that you can, and should, chase your dreams. That "playing small does not change the world" (Marianne Williamson). That's how Spokane Prenatal Massage was born.  My previous careers include being a Master ASE Certified Automotive Technician and a Certified Fasenter Specialist and Warehouse Manager for a local fastener distributor.  My children and experience with my own pregnancies and giving birth are what led me on this path. I'm fascinated with the process of birth and I'm very passionate about supporting other women to feel empowered in their journey. I hope to inspire and encourage other women to research and make informed decisions about what kind of birth they want and to find professionals who will support them in those decisions.  Massage and hypnotherapy are the tools I use right now in my own life and to help others. I have plans to expand my toolbox in the future and am excited about the new opportunities that it will give me to help others heal and shine their own light. Learn more Shenice...

Girl Get A Doula with Michelle Dunn (Photos and birth)
Michelle's favor quote: You are you, I am I, be in the moment, be in the now.  I will capture the rest. Hello, I'm Michelle!  Born and raised in Northern Indiana.  All my life I have loved photography and babies. I gained most of my hands on experience as a nursing assistant in an Amish Birthing Center.  Over 16 years ago I documented my first birth!  Where I went in just as a support person and took my camera with me.  My photography business took off 8 years ago and I have never looked back.  I have a wonderful birth community here who support the work I do as a photographer.  I truly believe an image says a thousand words.  An image can heal a broken heart, evoke an emotion, bring us back to a moment, and fill a void we may not have known existed.   Through my doula work, I am able to work alongside birthing people and help bring awareness to the birth process.  I aim to aide birthing families in a better birth experience, all while capturing their journey as it unfolds.  My goal is to capture raw emotion, and moments that we may not even realize happened during birth.  I want those fleeting moments captured for you to share your birth with others.  Sharing our stories brings better awareness to better birth outcomes.

Women in Business with Nina Nichols (Nina Cherie Couture)
I became the “girl who could sew” at a young age. I started sewing at the age of nine with a needle and thread and by age 12, I had taught myself how to use a sewing machine. All throughout high school and into college, I made many of my outfits and wore them with pride. It was no surprise when my love of making clothing lead me across the country to the fashion capital of the world – New York City. I attended and graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in Patternmaking. The beauty of this program was that instead of simply being someone who designed and made clothing, I would also become a “Clothing Engineer” with a keen understanding of garment construction. Shortly after graduating from FIT, I was hired as a Technical Designer for the Michael Kors label. This position was what really developed me to have an expert eye for solving fit issues as well as understanding the quality of a garment's construction. I also had the privilege of working with amazing Tailors and Seamstresses who practically took me under their wing to teach me their techniques. I felt beyond blessed because this "hands on" experience was something that couldn't be taught in school but I instead learned it directly from the "best of the best" in the fashion industry. I started sewing more and more for other people that it became a part-time gig for me. I made a wide range of garments, but quickly grew to love bridal and evening-wear the most because of how it transformed my clients and allowed them to see a more glamorous version of themselves. Over the years, I have altered hundreds of dresses and customized many formal looks. This is the work that fuels me. It takes skill and heart and keeps me connected to the drive I've had since I was a little girl. Every project, every client, and each of their special moments welcomes me into a story that is bigger than my own. It is truly a blessing to be able to do what I love for a living, as well as share that love with the clients that I am so fortunate to work with. My goal is to make each and every one of them feel special, look beautiful, and know that when they work with me - they are in good hands.

What is your style Saying with Nikki Ray (Brownie Boutique)
My name is Nikki Ray.  I am a Wife to 1, Mom to 2.  I live in a house full of boys, and I am their Queen! I am a believer in Christ, and I fully subscribe to the narrative that Women are an amazing beings, equipped to do great things. One constant has always been the military lifestyle.  I grew up a military kid, traveling the world, and I get to give those travels to my own children by being a Veteran, and being married to a military member.  I enjoy connecting with military spouses and providing resources where needed. A fun passion of mine is sports, and coaching allows me to give back to athletes, much like my coaches did for me. I could be a student for life.  Any opportunity I have to learn, or research, I make it happen. I am currently pursuing my MBA, and certificate in Women's Leadership. Besides my mommy and wife hat, the other hat that stays on is a business owner. I started the Brownie Boutique in the fall of 2020. In the midst of great life change in that year, I wanted something that was completely my own, that I created, and would work nonstop for.  For years, that was exclusively my children.  As they became more independent, I said "It's Go Time". The Brownie Boutique was birthed out of the laundry room in our house, and the rest is history. Why Brownie? My maiden name is Brown, and it's also a nickname given to me by my boo thang! The Brownie Boutique is me. Every piece that I create has a part of me.  It speaks to who I am.  Believer, Military Spouse, Mom, low-key Feminist! I am the She-EO of my dreams

Meet Akelia Campbell @sicklecellpatientcare  Growing up feeling very self-conscious about my illness often resulted in there being this great mystery surrounding my health. After years of shutting myself off from the world, I finally mustered up the courage to speak my truth. It all started by simply wanting to share more information on Sickle Cell Disease itself, however, it slowly turned into a beast of its own. Nowadays, I tend to share my personal life experiences while focusing on creating a community and bringing awareness to this very common yet rarely spoken about illness.     Music from Uppbeat (free for Creators!): https://uppbeat.io/t/soundroll/poemLicense code: RBVE68QI7HWQJHZR #sicklecell #livedexpereince #podcast #blackhistorymonth #tlpnetwork

Girl Get A Doula with Latasha Williams Hoke
Latasha is the owner of Tash The Doula and is passionate about childbirth and postpartum care.  Hoke is recently married and loving it. She was born and currently resides in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. Her husband and she moved back to Charlotte after graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor of Science in Health, Physical Education, and Exercise Science and a minor in Psychology.   Hoke's calling and passion began when a former colleague, shared she was completing her training as a doula. Hoke did not know what she meant, but once her colleague shared what she was doing she knew she was being called to this journey as a doula.   She began pursuing her career in birth work after working in the medical field and hearing about the struggles many black women face during labor. This experience is what sparked her interest. She knew that she wanted to do something, but wasn't sure what.   Although Hoke was working in the medical field, she knew that she was not in the role she wanted to be in and felt that she could do more to make a difference. After further looking into the maternal mortality rate, the racial disparities in the field, and hospital policies she realized a change needed to be made.   She knew completing her training to be a doula, a constant support person for those in labor and postpartum was exactly how she needed to get her foot into the birth work world and make the difference she knew she could by supporting her community.   #podcast #doula #women Listen to more on our other platforms  https://linktr.ee/Tlptalk Connect with our guest  https://www.instagram.com/tash.thedoula/ https://www.tiktok.com/@tashthedoula

Girl Get a Doula with CC Oronoz
I am a mama to two kids-a 5 yr old and a 2 yr old. I had a birth doula with both of them and they were so instrumental in helping me to achieve the birth that I was hoping to have. After the last birth, I felt the pull to look into becoming a doula-and I did it. During a pandemic no less 🤪 but I am so happy that I did because I never would’ve dreamed I get to help people in this way! When I’m not at a birth or helping a new parent, I’m with my kids and husband. We spend a lot of family time together. My happy place is Baja California, eating the most delicious food my mother-in-law makes. I love to read, and watch movies. My guilty pleasure is reality TV 😆.

100 Ways To Support One Another with Chelsey Whilding

I have always been a cheerleader for mental health access, and it is really a joy to be in a position now of being able to connect others to Charlie Health's virtual therapy program.

Black Voices in the Community with Brianna Rollins
I am a Spokane native woman of color, who recently graduated with a master's degree in social work from Eastern Washington University. My bachelor's degree was also from Eastern, in social work with a minor in political science. I am passionate about social justice and systemic issues within my community. I believe that in order for individuals to be successful, systems have to be in place to facilitate and support growth and success. Shortly before graduation, I became employed at the Carl Maxey Center to do census outreach and have recently transitioned to Black-owned business outreach. My work with the Carl Maxey Center, in combination with my learning and personal experience around race, has given me a bowed understanding of racism in the greater Spokane area. I am a Black woman born in North Idaho and transplanted to Spokane before I can even remember. I graduated from Lewis and Clark to attend both SCC and SFCC. I continued my education at Eastern where I earned my Bachelor’s of Social work and a year later my Master’s of Social Work. I have been able to grow with Spokane and I intend to push the city to grow and be more welcoming to people who look like me and those who look different from me. I have a passion for helping the African American community and was delighted to find others in Spokane excited and ready to do the same work. I met Sandy in my bachelor's program and decided that I wanted to work for her and the lovely board at the Carl Maxey Center when I graduated. I am happy to say that I have been working for the Carl Maxey Center for a little over a year and love every minute of it. Website: https://www.carlmaxeycenter.org

Girl Get a Doula with Janelle Leo-Boyd
My passion for birth work stems from a desire to serve others as a form of worship to Christ. Half way through graduate school, I realised that everything I had aspired to do and accomplished came from a desire develop self and improve self, it wasn't to help others. Graduation was approaching and I had to do some deep self reflection. The safe haven that college life gave me was coming to and end and I was about to enter the real world! Did I choose the right career path? Am I going to enjoy doing this for the rest of my life? While I enjoyed performing DNA analyses on sexual assault samples, toxicology analyses to identify drugs in body fluids and arson analyses on fire debris samples... something was lacking. I knew deep down I wouldn't be fulfilled. I started getting tired of suiting up (lab coat, gloves, face mask pre COVID and lots of hair nets) every day knowing I had to do something about it ASAP. The summer of my first year of graduate school, I attended my church's annual prayer retreat, which usually lasts a week. I should mention that a week before that was the first time I saw a video on Instagram of a woman having a home birth, in a birth pool, with a BIG SMILE on her face! I had never seen anything like this before and I wanted so bad to be apart of that experience! I obviously didn't want to go back to school for another 1000 years (I'm exaggerating) to become a midwife so I researched different birth professional programs and discovered the role of doulas in the birth realm. During my prayer retreat, I prayed for opportunities to serve God as I serve others and on the third day of the five-day retreat, God revealed to me that my newly found interest was my life's purpose! Since then, I've become certified as a birth professional, served a diverse group of families, both paid and gratis, and I have been continuing my education as I stay in prayer to serve growing families the way God intended for my life.

My personal Story: Learn about miscarriage and Resilience
Elisabeth Kraus is a native of Washington state, where she lives with her two daughters, Sophia and Maliyah. Having spent most of her career working, teaching and publishing in Higher Education, life took surprising turns when her sons Isaac, John, and Malcolm did not survive their births. Naturally, this heart-breaking experience opened her heart and research interests to the disparities in maternal healthcare in the US, and she decided that she wanted to help. Currently, Elisabeth has launched a Foundation (The Rosemary Foundation for Maternal Care), while also teaching at a local University and working with her two sisters on various Early Intervention healthcare initiatives. In her, albeit limited, spare time, Elisabeth loves to read, play her piano, travel (the beach is particularly close to her heart), and enjoy her daughters’ growing up." Have question?

Alicia Castrogiovanni-  Alicia is a certified group fitness instructor through the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). She has an extensive technical dance background with over 25+ years of experience ranging from various forms of traditional dance (ballet, tap, jazz) and international dance. She began her fitness journey with Zumba and has been an active instructor for 10 years. She holds several licenses under the Zumba brand in addition to other dance formats, such as BollyX. Recently, she has found freedom in movement through the Nia Technique. Originally drawn to this format in 2009, she was intrigued by the healing, therapeutic, and holistic approach to movement and the combination of 9 different modalities in one class. The Nia Technique is founded on 3 disciplines: Dance (Modern, Jazz, Duncan), Martial Arts (Aikido, Taekwondo, Tai Chi), and the Healing Arts (Yoga, Feldenkrais Method, Alexander Technique). The combination of free dance, fitness elements, and light choreography innate to the body's natural way of moving created a new way of exploring expression and emotion through dance that she wishes to share with others. Her specialty focus in “Moving to Heal” provides an opportunity to teach movement from the perspective of healing not just for the body, but mind and spirit. Alicia Jackson My name is Alicia Jackson.

Choose a You Career or a child...Can you have both?
Welcome to our new segment called “You're not pregnant yet.” This segment is going to explore the ways that many people have journeyed towards creating a family. We are going to be diving into infertility, miscarriages, adoption, surrogacy, and pregnancy. The reason why I wanted to focus this podcast series on this because  I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility. I had no clue the journey that I would go on and wasn't sure who to speak to about this because of infertility with something that my family never spoke of. I want to give many people the opportunity to share their stories regardless of what perspective they come from to encourage someone's heart, mind, and soul.

30 Day Podcast: Leadership and Professional with Doug McCoy
In 2010, while working in the automotive industry and desirous of becoming a teacher, I decided to get my Career and Technical Education (CTE) certification.  This certification allowed me to accept an automotive technology teaching position at a Skills Center. Skills Centers are CTE instruction centers for 11th & 12th graders. Further, this position was challenging as it was located in a low SES, high diversity, inner-city location in western WA.Upon starting my career at the Skills center, I completely revamped the entire course and classroom layout. I developed a new and updated curriculum, built an influential advisory committee, and started an internship and direct requiting program. These were all unique and innovative programs that moved it to a new and exciting place.During my time as a teacher, I continued my education.  I received my MA in Educational Leadership in 2017, and my CTE Directors certification in 2018 with the aspiration of going into administration. I wanted to make an impact on a larger scale. I'm proud to say that I graduated with honors for each of my advanced degrees.I was a master teacher for other persons pursuing their CTE certification in automotive technology. Additionally, I was appointed incoming/new teacher mentor and coach for the school. My specialty is classroom management, classroom inclusion, connection with students, and classroom culture development.I also held a team leadership position on the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) collaboration team for two years and was a KPI team member for six years. I was a member of the diversity awareness/instruction team for two years and participated in the Uni-Serve Union counsel for one year. Teaching is my calling, and I have a passion for working with those that want to learn. I want to focus my attention on teaching teachers how to do precisely what I did in the classroom.  I want to be an influencer in changing the face of education focused on young boys/men. That would include skilled trades awareness, motivational speaking, men's coaching, guidance, advocacy, and rights.   I have a strong desire to continue to work with people, and this where I excel. Even if it is not teaching, as long as it is working with, guiding, mentoring, counseling etc, I am happy, and am looking to again return to this type of work.

I am formerly incarcerated. Due to coming up through the juvenile justice system into the adult justice system, I was haunted by a series of traumatic events that developed into rage and depression. While serving several years in prison I was able to grow in my walk with God which helped me develop skills that were already embedded in me to break the chains of addiction, depression, and unhealthy lifestyles. Present-day I am a successful business owner ( Real Estate Broker ). I also use the tool of music and therapeutic performing arts to continue to help others to a breakthrough in the same ways I was able to, and more.

30 Day podcast: Leadership and Professionalism with James Gatewood
Learn more about us www.tlptraining.com  Listen to the audio clips here:  Me? First and foremost, Dad, Golf Enthusiast, and Friend. I’m also a complicated tapestry of structure and emotion-driven to lead. I continue to learn and strive to be the business practitioner of choice, capable of forming and leading large teams to, through, and around change. My reputation as a people leader is not built on a foundation of successes, more of the opposite...it’s because I’ve failed. The beauty of failing is the lesson. Taking a look in my past, I’ve discovered, like a lot of things, that being a great leader is a consistent push and pull based on development of self and others. Personal growth is a continuum, a journey and not a destination. And even though being vulnerable is hard, I’m not afraid to rumble to be a better person. Related to Business Operations, some of my past accomplishments include bringing a private practice past a $3 million threshold without altering staff or procedure but instead designing and implementing new processes. Rising over 25% growth in less than 18 months. I have a recognized reputation of excellence in leading high-performing teams and over ten years of experience in Retail Sales and Dental Industry Sales. Running a company is not a one-size-fits-all model, so I’ve had to scale my business approach to meet the needs of my teams. This has meant enhancing organizational structure from a large corporation down to a private dental practice, reviewing organizational effectiveness, and cutting out waste where appropriate to improve business performance. Those experiences helped me build a track record of strong operational, sales, and development skills on a national level. Other professional accomplishments include:- Winning a 1.2 million dollar account for my territory- As a Sales Manager leading my team to exceed goals 10 out of 12 months- As a mentor and trainer developing people to exceed their own expectations Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/james-gatewood/

She saw a continued lack of hairstyle alternative products, not only for women but for men also! She decided people of any gender or race should have other options that fit their hair needs. Whether it's lovely locs, braids, long luscious hair, or just a plain ole bad hair day, she wanted to be able to help. She started to create a fashionable hair accessory for both men and women. She also offers to help men and women wrap their hair up beautifully in what she likes to refer to as a "crown", also known as a head wrap. While finding a modern hairstyle alternative for her fellow neighbors, she then noticed another problem. Trash that plagues our city streets! She did her research on a resolution to this issue and organized a bi-annual cleanup, which just wasn't enough to see a lasting difference. She decided to take it to the streets and get her hands dirty in some trash. Now offering a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly trash pickup service; also assisting in organizing community trash pickups for your entire neighborhood to take part in, BUT SHE DIDN'T STOP THERE While we all love a clean neighborhood, we also love a clean and organized sacred space even better! She takes special time and effort to spiritually cleanse not only your neighborhood but your home as well. “Cleanliness is next to godliness” is her favorite saying of all time and it's also a very true statement. The peace she receives from a cleansed space is like no other. She wanted to share her experience with whoever else is looking for peace and spiritual/mental/emotional release! Her special concoction while cleaning, will leave you feeling rejuvenated for sure! SAVING PEOPLE'S VIBRANT SPIRIT... ONE PERSON. ONE NEIGHBORHOOD. ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME.

30 Day podcast: Movement in the Classroom with Alicia Castrogiovanni
Join us for an amazing podcast focusing on movement in the classroom and how it can bring healing to the mind-body and soul.  Listen to the audio clips here: https://youtu.be/hzuGYJKmphM Alicia is a certified group fitness instructor through the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). She has an extensive technical dance background with over 25+ years of experience ranging from various forms of traditional dance (ballet, tap, jazz) and international dance. She began her fitness journey with Zumba and has been an active instructor for 10 years. She holds several licenses under the Zumba brand in addition to other dance formats, such as BollyX. Recently, she has found freedom in movement through the Nia Technique. Originally drawn to this format in 2009, she was intrigued by the healing, therapeutic, and holistic approach to movement and the combination of 9 different modalities in one class. The Nia Technique is founded on 3 disciplines: Dance (Modern, Jazz, Duncan), Martial Arts (Aikido, Taekwondo, Tai Chi), and the Healing Arts (Yoga, Feldenkrais Method, Alexander Technique). The combination of free dance, fitness elements, and light choreography innate to the body's natural way of moving created a new way of exploring expression and emotion through dance that she wishes to share with others. Her specialty focus in “Moving to Heal” provides an opportunity to teach movement from the perspective of healing not just for the body, but mind and spirit. Outside of fitness, Alicia dances on 2 performance dance teams - The Brazilian Arts Project student team, Equipe Faísca, and an Indian contemporary dance team, Aakrisht. With great honor, the Aakrisht team performed during the famous Durga Puja festival in 2017 for the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, and as guest performers at the U.S. Consulate in Kolkata. Alicia is passionate about sharing the healing, art, and expression of dance with others and believes that everybody and everybody is designed to move with dynamic ease to live a healthy sustainable life. "I don't dance because I am healthy. I am healthy because I dance." ~ Alicia ------------- Alicia Castrogiovanni Betancourt.Alicia@Gmail.com https://www.aliciatherese.com https://www.facebook.com/theAliciaTherese http://aliciabetancourt.zumba.com http://resumes.actorsaccess.com/AliciaBetancourt
