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

I took one tiny spark that ignited my energy and passion in my 30’s, and multiplied it into 10+ different projects in under 4 years. ​

Why I coach: Let's go on a journey...
My strict childhood forced me to give up on creativity and passion.
For the last 15 years, I worked in corporate banking, with cross-enterprise expertise in reporting, change management, project management, and strategy.
I thought my spark was gone, until my children inspired me to become a self-taught baker...
...which led to my solo owned & operated bakery, a national feature as a cake designer-stylist...
...and a product line, inspired by my Filipino heritage, stocked in two national grocers.
I have always hosted events and mentored women with self-funded passions...
...and I'd always find myself helping them afterwards, on one-on-one coffee chats.
My love for authentic conversation led to co-hosting & producing a basketball & urban culture podcast with local artists, athletes, and entrepreneurs...
...I spearheaded a national non-profit basketball festival...
...and I found the courage to play basketball again, just before turning 40.
My long-lost spark was re-ignited after over two decades, so I took a leap of faith...
...to dedicate more time to re-igniting dreams and empowering action...
To coach women in making their creative dreams come true.

I'm here to help you blaze your own trail.
