Courtney Killpack
Presenter

I'm a wife, a mom to two, and I'm obsessed with bras. It all started back in 2006 when I was hired as a Bra Fit Specialist at Nordstrom. I had no prior experience with lingerie or bras and little did I know my life was forever changed.

I worked at Nordstrom for four years where I got my experience, learned a ton, and become a Certified Bra Fit Specialist. I grew a large and loyal clientele and I LOVED what helping women. It's cliche' but I truly felt like I was making a difference in women's lives by helping women find bras that fit them. Bras are more than just underwear, they can help women gain more confidence and help them to look and feel amazing.

I quit by Bra Fit Specialist job at Nordstrom when I graduated from college. I worked in the medical marketing industry for a couple of years and when I had my daughter in 2012, I was really tired of not feeling passionate about my work. So I quit to become a full time stay at home mom.

I soon found myself bored. I started a blog and decided to write about what I was passionate about... BRAS! Long story short, things grew fast on my blog and I soon found my calling in life. In 2015, Bra Fittings by Court www.brafittingsbycourt.com was created and my mission is to be a place where women feel empowered, find the beauty within, and learn how to love and accept flaws, imperfections, and themselves! And if I happen to solve your bra problems too, that's a plus too! I strongly believe women can conquer the world when you're in love with yourself.

Suzi Sands
Aviva Woman

Presenter

Since she was a little girl, Suzi has always been interested in the harmonious works of nature and the role she, along with her other fellow species, plays in her environment (biological science degree from WGU). She has always been eager to share any and everything she learns with the nearest listening ear. Maybe, she just loves the sound of her own voice (teacher and public speaker). The way she shows love and compassion is by caring for and making memories for her family and friends (Master Esthetician and Instructor). But the most important skills came in creating her own clan of 3 (single motherhood) where she learned to juggle home, work, school, and child rearing all in one day and before the age of 30!

The story continues as one day Suzi sat frustrated with the lack of avenues for women to talk about intimate issues and find relief for common problems that women deal with during the many phases of life. Thus, the birth of Aviva Woman. As Co-founder, Suzi has a vision to empower the women of her community, and all communities, to take control of their intimate wellness, to embrace, love, and nurture their own unique identity.

Megan F. Brown
Presenter

Megan Faulkner Brown is the founder of The Sweet Tooth Fairy, embraced the foundations of baking and entrepreneurship simultaneously, and at an early age. Some of Brown's earliest memories are of sitting at the kitchen counter helping her mom make cookies. From her mother Megan learned exactly what color chocolate chip cookies should be when they emerge from the oven, and how a tasty treat can bring a smile to any face. From her father Megan gleaned an entrepreneurial spirit and the courage to pursue lofty ambitions. From the perfect mixture of these philosophies emerged The Sweet Tooth Fairy, a gourmet bake shop that has quickly become one of the most beloved companies in the Rocky Mountain region.

Deemed by Food Network’s Cupcake Wars as one of the country’s most accomplished bakers, Megan not only has battled and won their competition, but she also has 9 retail bakeries located in Utah and Arizona. In January of 2013, she was a featured chef at the prestigious Chefdance in Park City. In addition to finding new locations, making regular appearances on local news stations and TV shows, national blogs, and introducing her signature Cakebites™ on the Rachael Ray Show, TLC, QVC and the Gayle King Show, Megan spends her time returning to her roots, standing over her mixing bowl with pinches and powdered sugar developing new recipes. Before any product hits the shelves of the Sweet Tooth Fairy locations, it is first created and refined in Megan’s kitchen. Last year, Megan launched a line of baking and decorating tools that hit the shelves of major retailers like Micheals, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Joanns.

Megan’s passions expand beyond baking and mixing. Prior to embarking on her baking career, she was a staff member for former U.S. Representative Chris Cannon for nine years. However, her favorite job is being the spouse of Ethan Brown and the proud mother of six children, who serve as the company’s executive taste testers. Megan sincerely believes that every role, whether it is cooking up meaningful legislation, creating special delights to ease someone’s day or reading a bedtime story, provides an opportunity to better society. With this mindset, Megan launched the Bake a Difference initiative, which actively supports causes that seek to improve and inspire communities.

Megan is looking forward to leading the continued growth of The Sweet Tooth Fairy, helping customers in new communities make memories with those they care about, one batch at a time.

2 Chicks & A Toolbelt
Presenter

We are friends who would consult and help each other on all of our home and furniture projects and one day decided if we are going to be doing this all day, let's make it fun and do it together. We have worked so hard and after months of mixing and creating our own paint colors and constantly being asked, "Do you sell your paint?" We thought, why not? So, we hired a chemist and after months and months of hard work and testing to insure we had a superior product Chalky Chicks Furniture Paint was born! We love what we do & helping others succeed in all their projects too.

Pink Rose
Photography

Presenter

Photography means something more to Michelle Ellsworth. She started her professional photography career the day before her oldest son was in an accident that took his life in April of 2006. Her mission became to give to others what she wished she could give to herself-the gift of more than just the smile, but to tell the story behind those smiles. Michelle passionately believes the importance of family portraits and capturing everyday memories.

In memory of her son, she started the “Good Grief Project” where she photographs families who have lost children to celebrate how these families have turned their grief into something good. Michelle studied photography at Brigham Young University-Idaho and has been a professional photographer for twelve years. She is the mother to six beautiful children and the wife to a very tall man.

Pink Rose Photography will be teaching a 30 minute class on how to capture great photos of your kiddos in everyday life. Michelle will be discussing how to interact with your child(ten) to achieve genuine and authentic facial expressions as well as tips and tricks for flattering lighting. This class is for all moms who have any type of camera and want to remember all the moments of their child's life.
