Brian is a veteran police officer, licenced lawyer, speaker, and author who has been involved in criminal justice and law enforcement since 1994. In 2004 he was the lead investigator in a motor vehicle crash involving the death of a friend, causing his life to spiral downwards around him. He was finally diagnosed and began therapy for PTSD in 2012 and slowly rebuilt his marriage, family, and career. Brian has published two books about his experiences with mental health, trauma, and leadership: ‘On the Other Side of Broken – One Cop’s Battle With the Demons of PTSD’ in 2016, and ‘Career Suicide is Overrated’ in 2018. Brian speaks and trains extensively on issues surrounding trauma, leadership, and public safety culture and has been consulted by media outlets and public safety organizations across North America.

Ange joined the team in 2019, with 15 years of experience in finance and relationship management. Starting her career young and travelling to developing countries as part of her work requirements allowed her to develop a strong appreciation and deep love for doing what she can to be a part of change. Her career has allowed her to continue to support underprivileged populations through developing and leading fundraising initiatives, child sponsorship programs and volunteering time in various orphanages and teenage support programs in the Philippines.
Working in developing countries as part of her career, Ange has witnessed a number of social inequalities and extreme poverty that have continued to motivate and inspire her passion for supporting the wellness of children and youth across the globe.
Ange is a single mom of two children and two dogs. She loves music, fitness and food and she hopes to eventually make a full transition from a corporate career into the non-profit space.
