    Finding Strength and Strengths in Each Other with Marilee Killpack and Jessica Eraso of Gathre

    Finding Strength and Strengths in Each Other with Marilee Killpack and Jessica Eraso of Gathre

    Best friends and business partners, Mare and Jess are two of the most genuine women you’ll cross paths with. I wish you could have been in this interview in person to see the admiration these two have for each other, but I think you’ll get a good glimpse of it as we talk. You’ll also get a great sense of their passion and commitment to what they do.

    As founders of the company, Gathre, Mare and Jess created a brand that doesn’t just sell a product. Nope - these girls are on a mission to remind us all to live with intention and purpose and to clear out the clutter that distracts us from being our best selves.

    And yes, we’ll talk all things leather mats and home, but what you’re also going to hear is a truly wonderful example of what it means to find strength in other women AND how impactful it is to look for and lean into one another’s strengths.

    Navigating Life's Wins and Losses to Better Strengthen the Family On and Off the Court with Lee Anne Pope

    Navigating Life's Wins and Losses to Better Strengthen the Family On and Off the Court with Lee Anne Pope

    She grew up on the basketball court, following her dad’s career as a college men’s basketball coach. She knew the game like the back of her hand. Still does. Learning from her dad as they watched his players, went on recruiting trips and just spent time together at the dinner table, were some of Lee Anne Pope’s fondest memories with her dad, Lynn Archibald.

    It was years of moving from state to state, years of wins, and years of losses that taught Lee Anne and her family what it really means to be part of a team, on and off the court. What she didn’t know in her youth, however, was that her experiences as the coach’s daughter would be preparing her for a future as a coach’s wife.

    But it was certainly not planned or expected. Lee Anne actually graduated with a Broadcast Journalism degree from Brigham Young University and landed a job at ESPN in Bristol, Connecticut right out of college. The job of her dreams, or so she thought.

    It wasn’t long after she started at ESPN that a friend encouraged her to move down to Manhattan and take a job with her as David Letterman’s assistant - a job that would change her life forever and actually help get her back on the basketball court.

    Lee Anne Pope is the wife of BYU Men’s Basketball Head Coach, Mark Pope, she’s a mother of four girls, and she’s helping to build the best locker room in America! (I’m only a little biased - wink wink).

    Today, Lee Anne shares with us the lessons she learned from her parents during the ups and downs of her dad’s career, as well as how her childhood experience shaped her and prepared her for her career, for marriage and for motherhood.

    Family First with Kelsey Nixon

    Family First with Kelsey Nixon

    Today’s guest is a long-time friend and a name you’ll no doubt recognize if you’re a Food Network and Cooking Channel fan - Kelsey Nixon.

    Kelsey has had a passion for food for as long as I can remember… and that goes back to our college years!

    Kelsey launched her career in food on season 4 of Food Network Star just as she was wrapping up her undergraduate degree in Broadcast Journalism at BYU, where she also created and hosted a college cooking show called Kelsey’s Kitchen that focused on fast, fun, and affordable meals for college students.

    Food Network Star was just the beginning for Kelsey. She later hosted Kelsey’s Essentials, executive produced by Bobby Flay and one of the first pieces of original programming on Cooking Channel - which earned Kelsey a daytime Emmy nomination.

    Kelsey’s Essentials eventually grew to Kelsey’s Homemade, a cookbook, “Kitchen Confidence,” and a line of kitchen tools and small appliances featured on HSN. She’s been part of the Food Network family since 2008 with appearances on Iron Chef America, Chopped, Beat Bobby Flay, Guy’s Grocery Games, and Cutthroat Kitchen. Kelsey also regularly appears on the Today Show, Rachel Ray and Access Hollywood.

    More recently, Kelsey executive produced and hosted the hit family meets food game show, Dinner Takes All.

    Kelsey lives in Southern California with her husband, Robby, and her kids, Ollie, Nora and Penny.

    Today Kelsey shares with us the ups and downs of this incredible journey, along with what it was like taking a step back from a booming career to focus on family, and what she’s doing now to help you focus on dinnertime and family time.
