Keynote Speaker: Jessica Janzen

Motivational speaker | Business Coach | Entrepreneur | Author | Philanthropist

Jessica Janzen is a motivational speaker, business coach, entrepreneur, author and philanthropist. Jessica’s world blew up in 2016 when doctors delivered the news that her son had a rare genetic disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). At the time, there was no cure, no treatment and she was told her son wouldn't make his first birthday.

After overcoming the loss of her son, Lewiston, Jessica decided she didn't want to be in survival mode a minute longer. She used her pain as rocket fuel to create the change she desired and built a life of joy and success. Through her advocacy work, Jessica breaks through barriers to make life changing impact for a more accessible, and joyful world. She is the master of getting unstuck and bringing the joy to any situation.

Jessica's mission is to empower leaders, teams, and individuals to reach their fullest potential by providing them with her Roadmap For Resiliency and strategies for navigating mental health and burnout. Through engaging storytelling and inspiring life lessons, she aims to cultivate a possibility mindset that enables individuals to answer the question of "So Now What" and spiral upwards towards success and joy.

Photography Partner: Stephanie Thompson

Professional Photographer

Kelowna raised, New Zealand born photographer serving West Kelowna and the rest of the Okanagan since 2018. 
 
When I’m not behind the lens you’ll find me with my sweet boy joey, my beautiful step daughter Saylor, my cute pup Ruby and hanging with my wonderful friends and family. I’m a cancer so I feel every emotion, I’ve backpacked Australia, I have celiac disease, I prefer savoury over sweet, and I am absolutely obsessed with golden hour portraits. I’ll make you laugh, feel super comfortable, and overall make our session fun!
 
Ive always been great with people, and now being behind the camera I want to make people feel comfortable in my presence even more so. I have a very loud and contagious laugh, a super big heart, and I guarantee I’ll have you laughing during any session we have together. 
 
If I’m doing a session with you and your sweet family, I want to capture it all! The dirty faces, the cute little giggles, temper tantrums, the missing teeth, & the hugs and kisses between siblings... as we know this only ever happens once. But must of all I want to capture the LOVE. 
 
Same goes for any couples session, mommy and me mini sessions, portraits of your dogs or even headshots! I will do my best to make you feel as comfortable as possible while having fun at the same time. I promise your partner will walk away saying “well that wasn’t that bad!!!”, because we all know the men usually dread these things.
