    Fierce and Fearless at 40, 50 and Beyond! Taking back your power and living your best life!

    Fierce and Fearless at 40, 50 and Beyond! Taking back your power and living your best life!

    Terri has been involved in pageantry since competing at age 16 and placing in the top 12 at the Miss Teenage California Scholarship Pageant. She subsequently went on to compete for the next 30 years in the Miss and Mrs. divisions of dozens of pageants. As a ‘Miss’ contestant, she placed 1st runner up at the iconic Miss Hollywood pageant; she was a top 5 finalist for the Southern California preliminary for Miss World and  later that year won the title of Miss La Palma. After a short break to marry and have 2 babies, she won the title of Mrs. California United States, placing in the top 15 at the Miss United States pageant; she went on, after the age of 50, to hold the titles of Mrs USA Earth and Mrs. Global Elite.
    She has been a mentor, coach, emcee,  producer and director for contestants and  pageants nationwide for 25 years, including founding and producing the Miss Greater Southern California pageant and is a nationally ranked pageant judge. She has coached hundreds of pageant contestants in every pageant system and age division all over the nation, in all areas of competition and specializing in the most difficult category- the Interview Competition. 
    Born and raised in Long Beach California, she was a competitive gymnast from age 12 through her second year of college, where she studied Behavioral Science. After college, she entered the fitness industry, where she taught classes and managed fitness clubs, including managing exercise studios for the iconic Richard Simmons.
    Her favorite pastimes involve water- SCUBA diving, water skiing and whitewater rafting- and travel is her passion, but her greatest role in life has been raising her two adult daughters, Taryn and Brittany.

    We are talking all things FABULOUS:

    *Little girls- sugar, spice and everything nice
    … expectations and messages received by society, teachers, parents, church . Molding us in ways and belief systems about how girls ‘should be’. How the world has changed its views of gender roles since our childhoods. 

    *The teen years- experiencing ‘firsts’- flirting with adulthood, getting our hearts broken and trying to figure out who we are. 
    ….unsure of who we are- comparing ourselves to others- liking boys- OH BOY!- experimenting and risk taking- the pressure to be perfect- seeking autonomy.
    * The twenties and thirties- when the world judges us by our relationship status. Establishing ourselves and feeling we have to achieve certain goals. Timetables for milestones differ- this can make us afraid. Second guessing ourselves and our choices. Pleasing others above all. The potential for losing ourselves in motherhood.
    * Does life really begin at 40? The need to please begins to wane. Time to focus more on ourselves. Survived many ups and downs ( no one learns anything in the good times). Often in the ‘sandwich generation’ between kids and aging parents, which can be daunting… girlfriends really matter. Coming to terms with society seeing us as ‘older’. 
    * The fifties and beyond- everything we have been through up to this point has created who we are now. Society has changed its viewpoint of us. Redefining beauty on our own terms. The dichotomy of being more impatient yet more tolerant. More compassion and less appetite for BS. Wisdom kicks in. Courage kicks in. Today’s fiftysomething is not our mothers’ fiftysomething. Being afraid and doing it anyway. Bucket lists…. Mortality and limited time. Not waiting for others to make us happy. Taking risks. Comfortable in our sexuality.

    About Brandi:
    Brandi was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and her family is her rock.
    She became a mother in 2014. Fast forward, and Brandi has 4 little humans to raise as a single mom; a tough, yet rewarding job!

    "Remember that you were once a five-year-old little girl... dancing in the mirror, laughing and smiling at your reflection. You're still that little girl inside... " - Brandi

    From Brandi -
    "I have fought in my life, it is how to rise above your circumstances and create the life you want for yourself! I won't bore you with all the details, but I will tell you that I lost myself completely. Even though I had a strong foundation of confidence and self-love as a child and adolescent, life's circumstances tore it to pieces in a few short years. Luckily I had been building a network of strong individuals over the years who gave me the perspective I needed to find my inner strength again. I learned there was still some fight in me, and I emerged from my ashes like a Phoenix Rising! ​Once I  started telling my story, I realized how many women were fighting the same fight! This Reclaim Journal is a compilation of everything that brought me from zero to hero! I cannot wait to share it with you! "

She helps her listeners rediscover their deepest passions and ignites the fire needed to make them happen. 

    Katy's personal platform is "Stand Up, Speak Out Against Domestic Violence”. Once a victim of domestic abuse, Katy takes an active stand in the fight to end DV. She knows first-hand the importance that awareness and education play in ending or preventing an abusive relationship.

    In 2014, Katy opened the doors to Katheryn Jeanne Photography, an award winning, international wedding photography company. Her work has been featured in national publications such a The Knot Magazine, Martha Stewarts Weddings and Brides.

In partnering with organizations such as The Jamie Kimble Foundation, she will help raise funds needed to put programs in place worldwide. At a national level, she will dedicate her time and energy to working alongside state representatives to push bills into approval that protect domestic violence survivors. She will bring educational programs into schools throughout the country to teach young girls and boys what healthy relationships look like and what to do if they feel they are in an unhealthy relationship. Lastly, from an international level, she will merchandise her global outreach program that provides resources to women and men who find themselves in abusive relationships. It is time to take a stand and rewrite the script for survivors of domestic abuse. As Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." The time to use our voices is now. Join Katy in taking a stand against domestic violence.

Mesmerized by her voice

I love listening to Janice with the wisdom and advice she gives. Her topics are relevant and really speaks to today’s woman. Can wait to listen to more episodes.

twinkletoez ,

Top of my podcast list!

Janice is truly an inspiration for her advice, experience and expertise through all she has been through as well as her accomplishments. However, the thing that keeps you coming back to Janice’s podcast is her heart and teaching others to dig deep and find their authentic voice, to share their story, no matter how hard it hurts to finally find healing.
