from the

PUBLISHER

Launched in 2017, The KNOW Book + Tribe began as a way to bring more attention to dynamic women doing remarkable things in the Phoenix metro. We knew there were an outstanding number of women impacting the community and making big strides in their industries. Our goal was to get those women from behind their computer screens and into the public eye. Thus, we created the KNOW Book, a carefully curated publication that would feature vision-led women in a glamorous and authentic style. As the momentum grew and we recognized the need for more, we launched our Tribe around the women featured in our KNOW Book. Our mix & mingles soon ensued and we witnessed incredible things happening. We saw our women doing business with each other, creating friendships, supporting each other, collaborating on projects together and so much more. What started as a fun project to spotlight women, has turned into a full-blown movement. The KNOW Book + Tribe has expanded beyond its birthplace of Phoenix, Arizona; its aim is to launch in every major city across the United States and Canada. Today, we are excited to welcome the dynamic women of the YYC into our KNOW Tribe. The women featured in this book have been vetted against our high standards. I am proud to say that each and every woman featured is filled with integrity, vision, and grace. Welcome to KNOW Calgary!

engagement or wedding rings, earrings or necklaces, or functional silverware or sculptures. It’s bespoke art, rather than simply a commodity. It’s about creating family heirlooms, to be handed down through generations. It’s not just a beautiful item that signifies an occasion. It’s a treasure you pass on and with that, you’re creating memories.

Raised in Finland, trained in the UK and working under her own name in Calgary since 2010. Recognized nationally and internationally for her bold statement pieces rendered in contemporary Scandinavian style, Ellinor’s use of clean lines and architectural integrity appeals to those confident in their own style, with an appreciation for high quality craftsmanship.

INTRINSIC PSYCHOLOGY CRISTINA KALAS REGISTERED PSYCHOLOGIST

I always knew that I wanted to help others. I recognized my own difficulties as no longer being something that needed to be feared or fixed, but a resource to be utilized and valued. Through self-exploration, vulnerability, and acceptance, I began to see that inner peace, contentment, fulfillment, and happiness become more automatic when we own who we are and what we believe in. I strive to help clients attune to themselves, whatever their concern. I believe that identifying who we are, trusting ourself, and developing the courage to stand in our truth, are at the core of living a fulfilling life. We all long to be seen, heard, and understood exactly as we are. My journey lies in empowering individuals to remove anything that lies in the way of their greatness and to develop the ability to be who they have been all along.

Calling herself the “Astral Alchemist,” Julie used her knowledge from becoming certified in Reiki, Crystal Healing and Angel Healing modalities to intuitively design a modality that combines mind, body, and spiritual healing practices. Astral Healing can be accomplished in two ways: exclusively through visualization, or through the inclusion of light physical stretches. Each practice is designed to revolve around Earth’s energetic laws of circular motion, allowing you to recognize energy cycles and use them to promote energetic balance within your mind, body, and spirit. Julie teaches Astral Healing in her online communities, as well as in-person through group and private classes in the Calgary area.”

As an award-winning boutique photographer focused on artistic portraiture and special event photography, Brandie Sunley loves being behind the camera. She’s inspired to reveal the true beauty of her clients as she captures honest, meaningful moments through her lens.

Born in a small town in Southern Alberta, Brandie grew up travelling North America in the back of a wood-paneled station wagon. Her unique experiences and daring personality sparked her passion for the arts early on, starting with creating outrageous paper dolls and later experimenting with mediums like oil painting, fabric sculpture, and more. Brandie often relied on photographs as inspiration for her artwork, and began creating her own photographs to use as source material. This opened her mind to the deeply expressive power of photography.

With photography now her primary passion, Brandie balances her time between her photography subjects and her family. www.sunleyphotography.com

HOME & LIFE CULTURED CANINES BETH O’CONNOR Hello my name is Beth and I founded Cultured Canines in 2011. Before I became a dog trainer, my first dog, Jett and I were at the off leash park when he ran across the street to see another dog. He was hit by an SUV and died shortly after in my arms. This was, without a doubt, the worst day of my life. I became a dog trainer so that I could made sure no one would have to endure what my family and I went through with Jett. The relationships I have been able to build with my three dogs, Jake Leia and Kirk, has shown me just how amazing and complex the relationship between dogs and humans can and should be. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the bond between a dog and their owners grow and blossom.

HOME & LIFE Meet Ruth Everett and Tammy Nishimura: friends, fitness instructors and fellow dog lovers. When the opportunity to become business partners and co-owners of Dog Gone Running arose in 2015, they jumped on it. The chance to combine their individual passions for running and furry family members in service of Calgarians and their canine companions seemed almost too good to be true! Since then, Calgary’s premier dog running company has doubled in scope

and size, adding pet sitting and an on-line delivery service to its roster. Currently employing 25 runners city wide, Dog Gone Running has runners paired with a canine client for an hour session, which is then documented, photographed, and blogged on the DGR website. This individualized service and attention to detail, coupled with the wide variety of dogs and dispositions they are exposed to, is what makes Dog Gone Running’s service stand out from the pack.

EZER PHOTOGRAPHY SARAH DEMPSEY-BAUER In a time when photographers seem a dime a dozen, it’s not years of experience or a vast online following that sets one apart from the rest. A born and raised Calgarian, Sarah Dempsey-Bauer knows the heart of a city that has risen and fallen only to rise again. She seeks out the naked beauty of a moment that is born in those instances, unadorned and candid. Sarah, a wife and mother herself, specializes in family, newborn and birth photography. It is life’s tender, intimate moments that she is drawn to —a glance, a touch— and the reality that some of life’s greatest moments are also life’s shortest. As owner and photographer of Ezer Photography, her desire is to allow people to slow down to invest, treasure, discover and capture life’s moments, big and little alike. For they are not just moments to remember, they are what defines who we are.

ELAINA KUTZ 3X3 CONDO MANAGEMENT Ms. Kutz has always been a strong female leader in male dominated industries. Some say she likes the challenge. Some say she finds her niche in the more aggressive sectors. Others say she is just plain crazy. While her background varies from psychology to government to condo management, she never did figure out how to just sit still or what she wants to be when she grows up.

Raised in Calgary, both parents were self-employed entrepreneurs. So, when they say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, it’s quite true. Her current endeavour is to capture the small to medium size condo management market and provide effective, efficient and friendly service to those who require it. 3x3 entered the Calgary area as a sassy alternative to an industry that could use a shake-up. It’s only been a few years, but the management industry has definitely been shaken, not stirred .

In 1986 when Christine McIver’s son Derek was diagnosed with a brain tumour, there were very few programs in the province to help children and families navigate childhood cancer. With a group of dedicated volunteers, Christine started what would become Kids Cancer Care in her basement. Today, Kids Cancer Care is internationally recognized for the quality and diversity of its programming, which is uniquely designed to meet the needs of the whole family at each stage in the cancer journey—from diagnosis through treatment, and even bereavement. Christine’s life’s work to improve the lives of children with cancer has been recognized with several prestigious awards including a Governor General’s Meritorious Service Medal and an Alberta Centennial Medal. In 2017, she received an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree from the University of Calgary. Although her son Derek did not live to see the work of his mother, his memory lives on in the work of his mother and her staff at Kids Cancer Care.
