This February, all month long, we’re honouring the work of 28 inspiring leaders. Women who are drawing upon and celebrating their culture while making a lasting difference in their community using their gifts. From authors and teachers, CEOs to entrepreneurs, not-for-profit directors, artists, and more, these women are changing the face of leadership.

These are truly women to watch and veza community is so pleased to share their brilliance.

May their stories inspire YOU to rise.

Meet Mollie Sommer.

Mollie is the proud mother of two beautiful children, and owner of Mollie Sommer Wellness in Kamloops, BC. Learning to let go and embracing her faith, she has opened her heart to a new way of life. Through trial and error, Mollie’s life has become a teaching tool for those struggling to find their feet. She uses her experiences to authentically teach, coach, and lead others. Her company offers meditation, mindfulness, yoga, Reiki, life coaching, and retreats to help clients grow, expand, and step into the life they want.

Mollie feels that life has been her education. She has experienced life’s highs and lows and has come out the other side with her lessons stored as tools in her toolbox. She has turned her Karma into Dharma, using her past to build her purpose. She feels that her past has made her strong: a lioness who uses the infinite love of the universe to help people rise out of their fears and fog.

So tell us, Mollie: What inspires you most? What motivates you to get up every morning?

Gratitude, love, and the great opportunities life offers.

How do you feel that your actions teach or inspire others?

I try to lead with love in everything I do. Every day, I practice gratitude, compassion, love, and excitement for life’s adventure. I hope that I teach others to do the same.

What is one change you’d like to see in the world?

I would love to see people shift from living from a place of fear into a place of faith and love.

Which of your contributions to date have given you the greatest sense of pride?

My children. They are pieces of my soul shining back at me.
