On ne dresse pas le chien, mais le maître ! Rencontrons Christophe Corré entrepreneur, coach humain en comportement canin!

Né en France, en Bretagne plus précisément, c’est en 2012 que Christophe Corré a décidé de venir s’installer au Québec. Sa formation d’origine dans le secteur du management et du commerce lui ont permis de se spécialiser ses compétences en matière de développement organisationnel. C’est en tant que conseiller en gestion de changement qu’il a commencé sa carrière dans les technologies de l’information au Québec en mai 2012. Il a eu l’opportunité d’accompagner plusieurs ministères et organismes, mais aussi des entreprises privées du Québec.

En parallèle Christophe a eu l’occasion d’adopter un chien puis d’ouvrir en 2015 sa pension canine à domicile. Cette expérience, riche d’enseignement et d’apprentissage, fut pour lui une véritable révélation et a conditionné ses futurs choix professionnels. C’est ainsi qu’en 2018 il a décidé de s’orienter vers l’apprentissage du comportement canin en suivant différents cours et formation pour lui permettre depuis 2021, et cela à 100%, d’accompagner les familles qui souhaitent bâtir et développer une relation harmonieuse avec leur chien.

Cette nouvelle orientation de carrière va également laisser place à un développement de projets dans l’objectif de créer un centre dédié à la sensibilisation de la relation chien-humain (https://orus.services/).

It’s Happy Mamas and Babies Guaranteed

Leanne Rzepa, owner and founder of Nourish Lactation Consulting, became a Registered Nurse in 2000 after graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Calgary. Rzepa quickly developed a passion for breastfeeding support when she began her career as a postpartum nurse at the Rockyview General Hospital.

In 2006 Rzepa began to focus her nursing practice on breastfeeding support and started studying to become a certified lactation consultant. Rzepa successfully passed her exam in 2007 and became an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant).

In 2008 Nourish Lactation Consulting opened for business to provide in-home breastfeeding support and education to families in Calgary and surrounding communities. Rzepa, always an entrepreneur at heart, saw a need for in-home support after years of working in the hospital setting. “Women spend such a short time in the hospital after giving birth. Most new mothers are exhausted and aren’t able to retain the information shared by hospital staff. Breastfeeding is a learned art. It often takes days or even weeks for a new mother to feel confident feeding her baby. Nourish provides support in the home setting which is more conducive for learning and confidence building.”

Nourish has helped countless mothers meet their breastfeeding goals by providing quality, caring, evidence-based support. Most women Rzepa supports struggle with latch, pain, tongue tie, milk supply issues, poor weight gain, or feeding multiples. In addition to providing in-home support, Rzepa has an online store that sells a variety of breastfeeding related products, apparel, and supplements. Nourish also offers a breast pump rental service, monthly workshops, virtual consults, a drop-in clinic and a multitude of services provided by other healthcare professionals such as a sleep consultant, registered dietitian, pelvic floor physio, and postpartum support provided by a Doula.

Rzepa is passionate about her job and receives much joy from supporting mothers to achieve their breastfeeding goals.

Taking risks and starting from scratch with Vincent Cheng

Vincent Cheng was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and presently resides nearby Ajax, Ontario.

Although Vincent calls Canada his home, he has explored 32 countries across the globe. This exploration has anchored his connection to diverse cultures formulating a deep understanding of humanity at large. Since 2013 Vincent has traveled to Japan annually and lived with a Zen Buddhist monk in a 600-year old temple until COVID-19 prohibited travel in 2020.

Vincent’s accomplishments are just as diverse as his travels. He began his career as an electrical engineer in 2004, and a year later, alongside this, Vincent began his quest of conducting orchestras, choirs, and operas. He coached and conducted hundreds of amateurs and professionals across Canada, the USA, Europe, and the Middle East in voice and musicianship. Feeling a deeper calling, Vincent retired from engineering to fully devote his pursuit to the music profession. In 2012 he sold all his possessions and booked a one-way ticket to Berlin, Germany; from there he conducted operas across Europe and won 3rd prize in the 2013 International Conducting Competition in Budapest, Hungary. In 2014 he returned to Canada and began his studies in psychotherapy, meanwhile continuing his conducting career as an ongoing passion.

These diverse worlds of work and life experiences have built upon one another and connect as a whole. They are what led him to develop ‘Heal The Source’, a method that helps people fast-track their own healing based on their need for change and development. It is through this one-of-a-kind approach that Vincent’s intuitive leadership and integrity shine through. His visionary way of thinking and his intriguing ability to motivate and inspire is what guides him in serving others through Heal The Source to heal the world!

When he is not traveling, you can find Vincent passionately enjoying culinary arts, creating cuisines of all types. He also revels in hiking, reading, meditating, piano and organ playing, and of course singing.
