Hi, I'M RECHIE!
I help creative and entrepreneurial women and mothers blaze their own trail.
I'm a creative trailblazer, mother of two, and problem-solving ninja.
As a little girl, I dreamed of being an artist and basketball player—but like many of us, I gave up on those dreams due to fear and trauma.
I was born in Zambia, Africa and raised in Canada. As immigrants, my parents made incredible sacrifices to give me the best life possible, and I wanted to be the best daughter I could be. Enduring a traumatic childhood, I developed severe social anxiety, repressing my self-expression so much that by my twenties, I thought my creativity was completely gone.
Then, I gave birth to a beautiful boy, and six years later, a beautiful girl. As motherhood became my priority and focus, I revisited what it meant to be my authentic self. I truly wanted to cook and bake for my children on a regular basis. My very first cake, which I baked for my daughter, set my soul on fire, my head spinning with ideas, and my heart singing with joy. It ignited a spark in me, which led to becoming a self-taught, 2x nationally-recognized baker and a national basketball festival & podcast.
It took me nearly two decades (including 15 years in corporate banking) to discover that I was always meant to be a creative entrepreneur—that my spark had never gone away; your inner fire can be ignited and re-ignited at any age.
I am proof that you can pursue your passions without compromising real responsibilities.
I did not quit my full-time corporate job to fulfill my creative dreams. And I did not give up on those dreams when I became a wife & mother. Instead, I blazed my own trail. While working full-time in corporate banking strategy as a wife & mother of two children,
- I became a self-taught baker & solo-entrepreneur. My cakes have been featured in the 2017 National Edition of Bride & Groom print magazine and three online magazines.
- I co-founded an innovative Filipino Fusion line of traditional pastries, stocked in national grocer T&T and national Filipino chain Seafood City Supermarket
- I spearheaded a non-profit national basketball festival raising $4,800 in proceeds for Sick Kids, Canada’s leading children’s hospital
- I became the producer and co-host of an urban culture podcast featuring creators, athletes, and entrepreneurs
- I hosted a global conference for professionals and organized local gatherings for entrepreneurial women
