#InspireInclusion: Celebrate southwestern Alberta’s exceptional women with us

International Women’s Day is March 8 but Shootin’ the Breeze celebrates women in the community all year long.
When we inspire others to understand and value women’s inclusion, we forge a better world.

Legion Ladies Auxiliary

I would like to recognize over 75 years of Branch No. 43 Ladies Auxiliary ‘s dedication to the Pincher Creek branch, veterans and community.

Aurora Eggert

One amazing woman I would like to mention who made a big difference in my life is Aurora Eggert of the Yurt Experience.

Not because she is my daughter!

Her very broad knowledge in physiotherapy (practising many years in Germany) as well as her experience as a life coach and yoga teacher has given her lots of skills in helping people finding their path out of their struggles and pain.

She helped me in times of darkness as well as many other thankful clients. I owe her a lot!

Margaret Thomas

Margaret is an amazing businesswoman based in Crowsnest Pass. The Wacky World of Wildflower specializes in bath, body and cleaning products. Not only are her creations natural, they’re affordable as well!

Margaret is also one of the kindest ladies you’ll meet and I’m grateful to call her a friend.

Sheryl Baker

Even though she can be tough as nails while pushing us to our limits in her classes at SGB Fitbodies, we all love her!

Her nurturing manner and true caring for her clients are amazing.

Inez Hendrickson

Inez is an entrepreneur who thrives on promoting other women and their products. Her store (Crockets Trading Company) is loaded with locally sourced items and she loves to share their unique stories. It’s always a pleasure to stop in.

Jade Lu

A great businessperson is one who knows their customers’ names and stories. I love the personal greeting she extends when we eat at Bright Pearl. Always with a smile.

All the ladies

I am proud of any and every woman who chooses to stand up for herself, despite fears, oppression, and continues to power through a patriarchal society that makes it hard to be a woman.

Linda Davies

What a powerhouse! Linda is never without a smile and was a great champion for the Pincher Creek Chamber of Commerce.

Doris Blackburn

Doris is a sweet woman who truly cares about her customers. She can steer you in the right direction to find a perfect gift and is never wrong! This personal touch keeps me going back to Blackburn Jewellers.

Melanie at the Gilded Haus

Melanie is the heart and soul behind the Gilded Haus in Blairmore. She’s brought in a great selection of gifts and housewares suitable for all ages, and now she’s added the Gilded Cup as well, where her and her staff serve up the most amazing coffee! I can’t wait to see what comes next.

Chamber Stacy

She’s great!

Myra Hammond

Myra is a powerful, supportive, and incredibly inspiring woman. She is a force to be reckoned with and I look up to her every day.  

~ Love, Jillanna

Aurora Eggert

This is my Aurora. She is an inspiration, an incredible person, a powerful woman. She is kind and tender. The business she runs is absolutely incredible. Aurora offers a plethora of help to people and it’s done genuinely. She deserves everything about celebrating women.

Jaime Mitchell

She marches forward carrying her son’s legacy to help others who struggle with mental health. Thank you, Jaime.

Kaley White

Kaley is a huge community supporter and is wonderful at donating to organizations who are impacting our region. Kaley works mostly behind the scenes at Fountain Tire and is a very positive, upbeat woman in business.
