Hello and welcome to the new KAT & GIO co. blog.
First, let’s get personal. Who am I? I am Chanelle, the newest member of the KAT & GIO team. I am a 23-year-old cat lover, candle lover, and life lover from Winnipeg, Manitoba. I will be keeping you updated and connected with all of the exciting things going on with KAT & GIO co.

Second, let’s get deep. Why am I here? A little over a year ago, I was living at home after graduating from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Arts in Labour Studies. This degree did not come easy. The challenges did not come from the assignments or exams... instead, they were internal. I lacked direction and drive. I went to university because it was the right thing to do. After many tears and late nights, I finally graduated.
After graduating, I moved into my first apartment and got my first adult job. From the outside it looked like I had it all together but I was struggling and could not figure out why. After a lot of self-reflection, I found out that the stability and income that I had did not matter to me. What mattered to me was a sense of fulfillment and purpose. After my head and my heart got into a scuffle, my heart came out the winner. I chose to quit my job with no plan B. Most of the people around me thought my choice was absurd. Few thought that this was brave. One day I reached out to Stella, a family friend since 2005 AND one of the most inspirational women that I know. She took me under her wing and now I am able to inhale, enjoy, and be well.
I chose the above quote because I was lucky enough to be able to follow my heart. My dream is to give back and share as much positivity as I can. I am so grateful that I can pursue a job that I love and be surrounded by people that give my life meaning.
