Talk the talk and walk the catwalk!
This headline captures what I do but I didn’t expect the walk to be a catwalk during Collingwood Fashion Week!
When my friends at Cora Couture asked me to be one of their models I was a little surprised.
I was also delighted. I love the clothing at Cora. The people at the store are terrific and I really had no choice but to say, “Of course”!
As a little girl who was fascinated with fashion and cosmetics, I never ever would have imagined that at almost 60 I’d be a model. But, when you’re taking a strong stand about how beauty is difference and how we all need to be confident in our own qualities, then this is what you do.
See you at the show!
September 27 - October 1, 2021.

I had the honour to sit down with Ann Rohmer and share thoughts on celebrating age at any stage.
Keeping it real
Sometimes the most wonderful things happen when you least expect them. Like walking on the beach and meeting someone for the first time.
That’s how I first met Dr. Roz Roach, the first Black woman in Canada to build a centre for abused women and children - Dr. Roz’s Healing Place.
We hit it off immediately and when she invited me to join her first season of the podcast “Keeping it Real” I jumped at the chance.
