I am from Nova Scotia and have been living in Calgary for the past 3 years with my husband, son, daughter and 2 fur babies. I am a stay at home mom who runs a small local crafting business which nurtures my creative side in a way that my previous work in the corporate world didn’t.
We have a Nova Scotian Gem joining our ranks! I’d like to welcome Alicia Dobranowski! She is ready to lead the charge for the Christmas Jewelry Drive 2017 in Nova Scotia!
Alicia was born in Ontario and has lived in Halifax; Nova Scotia for the past 13 years. She is currently working as a Recreation Therapist in Mental Health and Addictions.
“I feel honoured to be a ‘long distance’ Gem and so lucky to always have had strong support network of wonderful women around me. It’s so wonderful to be a part of an amazing team of women focused on supporting and building women up. We all need a hand to reach our potential and I’m so happy to be a part of that for others through Gems for Gems!”
“What this group of amazing women have already done for the deserving ladies of Calgary is absolutely awesome – I cannot wait to be part of this group to see what future projects are ahead.”
“I truly believe women are strong because of our hearts, how deeply we can love, how that love can allow us to create life and do the impossible. Jordan and the other Gems are walking embodiments of the strength of love. When we feel a sense of Sisterhood we are able to step into that strength with more grace and confidence than when we feel we are standing alone…”
“I am thrilled to become a part of such an amazing organization. I currently run a program at my school that encourages young women to follow their dreams, to be confident, and to learn from talented women who live and work in their communities. When my participants move onto high school feeling empowered, and motivated- I cannot describe the feeling. I am passionate about being part of an authentic network where women lift each other up and support one another so that each of us is able to realize our goals, our worthiness, and our strength.”
