Genevieve: : At 30 years old, Genevieve created Goddess Gains from her passion for fitness, for feminism, and for the intrinsic belief that we all deserve to feel worthy, to be enough, and to regain control of our own health – mind, body and soul. If she could form a community of likeminded individuals who uplift one another and share in this journey together that can potentially change the negative perspective of even one person – it would be worth the effort. Genevieve has conquered thyroid cancer, was awarded an editorial columnist position for an international webzine, taught the Maasai tribe in Kenya, founded the local chapter of a women empowerment non-profit “I Am That Girl”, wrote e-books for the Senate of Canada, competed and placed in bikini fitness competitions, is the co-host of Parliament Hill Bootcamp, a fervent keto advocate and has worked in marketing and sales for the past decade.
