What’s a typical day like for you?  I get up in the morning and start with walking my 6 year old boxer/or running him, then off to emails, creating the day and selecting music and choroegraphy, followed by some media marketing and a shot of espresso!  The daytime is spent alot on the business side and then night because zumba ZUMBA ZUMBA!!

What would you like to be remembered for?  Making a difference in people’s lives.  

What role does fashion play in your life? Fashion is a statement of creativity and personality.  I am usually in workout gear but to step into a funky dress or pant suit makes me feel sexy and successful!

 What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective?  Honestly, in my experience, it is the staff. They can put things together that I never would have imagined would work. I usually walk into the changeroom thinking “really? Are they sure about this?” and then I step out feeling and looking AMAZING! I never could have that transformation on my own!

What do you have that you want to promote?   My business is all about empowering women to live a stressfree live and feel confident sexy and FABULOUS!! I do this through teaching zumba fitness and laughter yoga. My classes are created in a way that every muscles is worked, you are laughing alot in class and you walk out completely sweaty and smiling from head to toe! First class is always free so there is no commitment. I think my classes speak for themselves and leave you wanting more! Our schedule is online check me out on You Tube….put in Tammy Gunn and many videos (including my boxer dancing) will pop up!

Is there anything else we should know about you? I am easily approachable and do lifestyle and health coaching for those who want a little more than just the fitness component.

Dress: Cherry Bobin – $120; Shoes: Croche Flats – El Naturalista, $184

 

Style Coach Vanessa says, “This is the perfect summer sundress!  Lightweight and stretchy for easy wearability and comfort.  Wear it with flats and a scarf for a day in the park or some cute sandals and a big floppy hat for a day at the beach!”

Style Coach Vanessa says, “You can’t go wrong with this simple, stretchy summer dress!  The band around the waist creates an hourglass silhouette that any woman can appreciate and the printed fabric adds a fun pop of colour for easy transitioning from daywear to night.  Wear it with layered long necklaces for a boho streetwear look, or add a cardi and some heels for a night out!”

Dress: Boho dress floral -Studio Fresh, $179; Shoes: Stella – El Naturalista; Necklace: Curious Oddites; Bracelet: BurfurtART

 

What’s a typical day like for you? It completely depends on the projects that I’m managing. It will usually start with a 7 am wake up, a bowl of protein enriched cereal and a mad dash to finish hair and make-up so that I can get back to my beloved laptop. From there I check my calendar and head off to any site visits or client meetings I might have that day. You can usually find me glued to my laptop between meetings at The Spoke Club on King West to get in some research or tend to emails.

What in your life is really important to you? It’s probably frowned upon if I say my laptop so I won’t….without a doubt my husband is really important to me. He inspires me to be more creative and to master my craft like he has mastered his (he’s a professional Barber in Yorkville at Axe & Hatchet).

Top: Blouson top – Brenda Beddome, $79 ; Skirt: Dandelion Skirt – Desserts and Skirts, $105, Ring: Curious Oddities; Shoes: Stella – El Naturalista

 

What would you like to be remembered for? Client Service. A past CEO of mine once gave me the best advice. He said you are nothing if people don’t think you really listened to them. Clients might walk away from a project and say Whitney was prepared, Whitney never wasted my time, Whitney was truly creative but when they say Whitney really listened I know I have achieved their vision and met their needs.

What role does fashion play in your life? It plays a huge role. Fashion is a way to express your identity and in the world of events we are constantly dressing to the occasion. Working an event is very different from attending one and I have outfits that cover everything in between.

What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective? The clothes are functional. For my industry we have to be able to load in every kind of decor but still look presentable when clients pop in to check on things. Fresh Collective gives so many options for comfortable fashion.

Is there anything else we should know about you? Random fact. I designed and produced carnival costumes for 10 years for the annual Scotiabank Toronto Carnival. I now use those design skills to produce creative events.

I regularly check in with Spirit about what I am guided to do and what is in the highest good for me, action wise.

Living my truth, and harmonizing hearts.

 What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective? I love how the clothes are comfortable, unique and trendy. This is an essential and hard to find combination as a healer! Fresh Collective is a life saver in this regard! Plus I love to support local, boutique shops.

What do you have that you want to promote?

Yes! On June 6 & 7th, I’ll be hosting a special Healing with Horses & Reiki workshop with Wendy Golding, Founder of Horse Spirit Connections.

Why Horses? Working with horses is a fun, gentle, and incredibly powerful way to accelerate the healing journey. Horse work allows you to bring things to the surface that might otherwise be difficult to process. Combined with Reiki, it is then possible to let go of emotions that have been challenging or limiting you from expressing your highest potential and true inner light, with ease!

There’s only a few spots left! Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity, to transform your life from the inside out! A $175 deposit reserves your space. Register online today here!

 Is there anything else we should know about you?

I am basically a gypsy.
I love horses, dancing in drum circles, and African house music.
It is an absolute honour and privilege to witness my clients blossom. I am so grateful for my work, each and every day!
