That's What She Said
In-Person (Toronto Area) 
Friday May 10th 7-9PM ET

TWSS is a monthly storytelling event for women.

Every month, 3 pre-selected speakers share their personal stories as they relate to the theme for the month. 

This highly interactive event provides the opportunity for women to learn from one another, connect, leave inspired, and have FUN. 

TWSS is back with a new format - one month will be in-person and the next month online, and so on!!!

I am so glad you're here! I'd love to share with you the story of how the Kick-Ass Ladies came to be. 

In 2009, my life as I knew it changed. As an only child of divorced parents, my mom and I were extremely close, she was my best friend and biggest cheerleader.  When I found out she had terminal cancer I felt so broken and defeated. I was by her side until that devastating day in the hospital when I ran my fingers through what hair she had left as she took her last breath.

For a long time after that day I felt like a grey muted version of myself. I wanted to make something positive come from this so I thought about becoming a grief counsellor and I went back to school with two young daughters and I got a degree in psychology.

After finishing my degree, life really started to change and this time for the better. I felt like an angry bear that was coming out of hibernation and I wanted to start having fun, experiencing joy, and feeling alive again. I did what most people would do and I gathered the most amazing women I knew to join me at Circus School.


That is when the Kick-Ass Ladies group was born because we realized how important it is to have adventures for ourselves and the power they have when we do them with others.

My experience attending the KAL events has been life changing.  It has pushed me past my comfort zone many times and opened the door to new experiences, friendships and networking opportunities with like-minded ladies. 

KAL has become an important part of my life and I am excited every time I talk about this group!  KAL brings me joy, happiness and has increased my self confidence.  This group has opened my mind to thinking about my own visions. 


I am pumped to continue riding the wave of KAL and look forward to the next event and the one after that, and so on and so forth.....!!"

Steffanie Munroe I Proud KAL Member

I have been a member of the Kick-Ass Ladies group since January, 2016.  It has been an amazing experience to connect with fun-loving, positive women in a supportive environment. 


Through play, we push ourselves outside of our comfort zones, attack new challenges and enjoy some time away from the stresses of career, family and life. 


As busy women, our KAL outings are designed to allow us to take time for ourselves and remember the importance of letting go and experiencing “play”."
