    Ep 027 with our friend Kaitlin Christine of Gabbi

    Kaitlin Christine is a breast cancer survivor and ovarian cancer previvor who has made it her life's work to empower women to understand their bodies and advocate for themselves. She is the CEO & Founder at Gabbi, Inc. where she and the Gabbi team are on a mission to decrease delayed diagnosis. Kaitlin has spent over 9 years in women’s health--working for leading nonprofits and as a sought after national speaker. She was the youngest hire for the world’s leading genetic testing company, Myriad Genetics. So far, she has brought Gabbi through a successful oversubscribed first round of funding in early 2021 and has pulled together a team of highly qualified experts and advisors. Kaitlin has also been selected as Oregon’s Entrepreneur of the Year 2021, winner of the HITLAB Women’s health tech challenge and HITLAB’s audience choice award. Kaitlin Christine lives in Portland, Oregon. She frequents the Portland State Farmers Market every Saturday and in her free time (what free time?!) is a yoga instructor, avid hiker, and (un)professional wine aficionado. In her past life, she was a food writer -- naturally she enjoys bringing people together to laugh while gorging themselves with her favorite farmers market finds and natural wine.

    Ep 022 with our friend Kat Plouffe of Get Only

    During today's episode, we chat with Kat Plouffe, co-founder and CEO of Get Only, offering a range of sustainable period products delivered across Canada. Kat was raised in Hamilton and moved to Ottawa to get a degree in Cultural Anthropology from Carleton University. Shortly after graduating, she snowballed her way into entrepreneurship after realizing that the period products made by the big brands she'd been using her whole life are made of heavily processed, synthetic materials.
