S02E35: Lindsay Tarnoff - The deliciously mad genius behind Laughing Gull Chocolates
There's not a lot that we take more seriously here at O&H Consulting than food - and chocolate is right up at the top of that list. Add to that a healthy dose of grass roots activism (we bought 8 of the chocolate uteruses and are pleased to say we got one with the raspberries!!!), women finding fulfilling careers that allow them to earn profit, follow their passion, and be full-time moms and there was no way we weren't going to love Lindsay Tarnoff and her team at Laughing Gull. They are pioneering a new way of creating sweet treats - that acknowledges the true cost of their ingredients. Really, our only regret is that they're not partnering nationally to have one of their amazing pairing menus local to us! Go and learn more about them! Buy chocolate!! 'Tis the season.....

Armed with her extensive credentials and experience, along with an empathetic approach as an ADHD Warrior herself, Dr. Moore breaks down some of the common misconceptions regarding this condition.

She specializes in cognitive rehabilitation training and cognition assessment for ADHD and other neurodevelopmental disorders, brain injury, learning disabilities, and age-related cognitive decline.

S02E31: Jamie Barlett - Cutting through Bull$shit to Create a Fairer Business World
Long-gone are the days when cash ruled the world. But many payment-processing companies still aren't set up to look out for the best interests of solo entrepreneurs or even small businesses. Jamie Barlett's company, Polypay, is out to make the system more accessible for businesses of all types and sizes. Meanwhile, she's working to improve the work-life balance for her own employees, ensuring fairness starts from the inside out. In this episode, she talks with Michele about overcoming many of the obstacles and expectations associated with being a "Head B*tch in Charge," including why it's okay to make certain jokes in a professional setting, but not acceptable to call your employees "family" -- or waste a person's time with an unnecessary "Rose All Day" happy hour.

S02E30: Kate Dunne - Making Short-Term Housing Feel Like Home
There are a lot of ways that this country lets down those who serve. An often overlooked one is that we don't provide affordable, safe, and comfortable housing for them and their families when we ask them to relocate. Often enlisted personnel - and their families - spend months waiting on housing to become available. Kate Dunne and her employer, Patriot Family Homes, are trying to help. They offer reasonably priced AirBNB's designed to accommodate families in longer term stays. Kate talks a lot about their process and her design ethos (comfortable, sturdy, affordable), but mostly about the people they help. Think that travelling around the country decorating homes for veterans sounds like a dream job? Great! They're hiring....

S02E29: Jill Urbane - The Mentor Mom we all need in this moment.
There is no harder job than being a parent. Add to that the conflicting societal stresses put on women about who they "should" be, and you get a real need for a mentor. Everyone has their own thought, suggestions, and recommendations on how to raise your kid. Most of this is based on either how they were raised themselves, a book they read, or how they raise their own children. And 90%+++ is garbage. It doesn't reflect YOUR child, or YOUR household. Jill Urbane is an actual expert with actual training who works with parents to cut through the noise, cut through the drama and find ways of improving things for their actual household. She's the bestfriend every mom needs. Jill will come to you live via Zoom to help, but she's also got a wealth of free resources available to help anyone who needs it.

S02E27: Caryn Ruby - Kickin' a$$ at the most important job in film you've never heard of.
When we think of jobs in Hollywood behind the camera there's a standard list: Director, Producer, camera crew, casting, etc. The truth is that there are hundreds of roles that are required to make the films and television we love - and most of them are ones we've never heard of. One of those is Script Supervisor, and leading the charge to change the visibility and value assigned to this role is Caryn Ruby. Caryn has held a wide number of roles both in front of the camera, and behind the scenes after much soul-searching she decided on a "day job" as a Script Supervisor. Listening to her talk through the duties and responsibilities, the only response is "wow!!!". It's a LOT. Yet, they get so very little press. To help with that Caryn has recently launched an awesome new podcast: The Script Supervisor. This limited series podcast talks about the role, the craft, what happens when it's right, and what happens when it goes WRONG. Exciting answers include what did happen with that coffee cup on GOT??? Here's a bit more about Caryn: An award-winning dark comedy writer, performer and professional Script Supervisor, Caryn Ruby has scripted alongside Oscar and Emmy award-winning crew on award-winning and groundbreaking films including both Women In Media Camaraderie initiative Grand Prize Winning Films "Charlie and the Hunt" (Cannes), and “Blood and Glory” (Tribeca) and Women In Film/Google’s short film lab selection, “Choices.” Additionally, she had the privilege of script supervising the American Society of Cinematographer’s Standard Evaluation Manual (StEM2) film “The Mission,” and was selected as one of 17 fellows for Blackmagic Collective’s Filmmaker Advancement Initiative. She just launched her original podcast, “Script Supervisors: Unsung Heroes of Film and TV” - a backstage pass to filmmaking from the rarely acknowledged, but incredibly important department head’s perspective, featuring over a dozen top script supervisors from across the USA.

S02E26: Kim Hamer - Helping us all help better when those around us are in need.
When someone within our circle is diagnosed with cancer it's a difficult experience for everyone. Kim Hamer reminds people that "they're experiencing it too". She leads from a strong place of empathy and experience. Having lost her husband at a very young age to unexpected cancer she knows what it's like. In this episode Kim talks about how she was frustrated with her mother in law until she realized "I lost a husband, but she lost a son". Big, scary things happen not only to us but to those around us. They affect our colleagues, families, friends, businesses, and so much more. Kim helps businesses deal with those big scary things. Her organization, 100 Acts of Love provides training, coaching, and more to facilitate those conversations. She helps managers know what to say instead "let me know if I can do anything" (which Kim advises is actually the worst thing you can possibly say). Visiting the website will tell you why that's so bad, and the other 4 things you should never say. Here's how they describe it on the website: DID YOU KNOW 46% of those diagnosed with cancer are between the ages of 25 and 64, prime working years? 80% of those diagnosed with cancer intend to work while they are being treated? Managing an employee with cancer is disquieting. Most managers don't have the correct tools to manage their team in a crisis. Most managers don't know how to be empathetic and clear about workload and ability. Most team members don't know how to support the employee affected by cancer and avoid giver's resentment. Most employees affected by cancer are scared to ask for help and are worried about their ability to continue to work effectively. Most organizations miss the opportunity to teach their managers how to manage through a crisis and help teams show up in a meaningful way that builds camaraderie and productivity! Kim's work is amazing and so important. Her energy is instantly healing. You should get to know her better.

S02E25: Limor Bergman - Helping women not just survive but thrive in "the boys club".
Limor Bergman managed to work her way to Director of Engineering despite all the odds being stacked against her as both a woman and an immigrant. Along the way she learned a lot of lessons about "playing the game" and when not to play it. Today she uses that hard-won knowledge to employer the next line of women in engineering. Here's what she says: Hi, I am Limor. I have been working in the tech industry for over 20 years as a software engineer, engineering manager, and Director of engineering. I know firsthand what it is like being a woman in a male-dominated field. After spending nine years living in the US, I returned to my home country and decided to focus on my passion for supporting women's career growth in tech. I have been mentoring women for over four years and created a mentorship program for women with PowerToFly. I also consult with companies that want to build mentorship programs or build a complete mentorship program based on the company's needs. When I moved to the US in December 2010, I had to find a job in a new country without knowing anyone. So I had to navigate LinkedIn and figure out how to brand myself for employers and find a job. I perfected my LinkedIn profile and was able to get multiple job opportunities without even looking for a job. I now help women do the same and have a one-on-one coaching business and a course on LinkedIn.

S02E24: Danielle Orsino - The real-life Fairy Queen with attitude.
Think comic book geeks are all boys? Nope. Think the ones that aren't are all chubby teenage girls? Nope. Think people fantasy fans are all starry-eyed romantics who can't deal with reality? Nope. Meet Danielle. She breaks all the stereotypes. Beautiful, smart, kind, and in every possible, amazing way - a massive NERD! She's breathtaking. Danielle was a nurse trying to help her client deal with the painful reality of regular treatments for Lupus, and started making up stories for him. That world grew until it needed to be captured on paper. That's how Locked Out of Heaven started. Here's her story as she tells it: Danielle M. Orsino is a fantasy novelist whose compelling word-weaving pays homage to a multitude of personal muses, from Chris Claremont and George Pérez (both famous comic book writers), to Anne Rice, Jim Henson and Wonder Woman. The creative spark of storytelling has been with Danielle ever since she was a child, but martial arts and her nursing career took center stage into adulthood. Then, on a day like any other, it was reignited during the most unexpected of moments: while treating one of her patients. It started as a simple tale to distract her patient and transformed into a fantastical narrative that would become the foundation for the series "The Birth of Fae". In keeping with the roots of her creativity, it was a unanimous decision by 4 Horsemen Publishing to place her on the cover of each book in all her Fae cosplay glory. The series also features Los, an affable chameleon dragon, inspired by her fun-loving Yorkie named Carlos. This “New Queen of the Fae’s” unmatched world-building and masterful Fae-origin retellings have led to an ever-growing queendom of “Fae-natics”.

S02E23: Alex Boylan - From the Amazing Race to the collegiate rat-race.

S02E22: Athena Peters - Creator of worlds, histories, and leader of unicorns.
When you think of an up-and-coming C-suite exec in the technology sector you probably don't imagine a 5'2", 40-something LGBTQ+ woman with purple hair whose dress fashion is self-described as "pajama-chic". You'd be wrong. Athena Peters is a veteran creative leader in the gaming industry who has a star-studded career working on some of the biggest titles with the biggest studios in the industry. After dealing with rampant misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, and masculine centric narcissism of that world for 20 years Athena declared it enough. Today Athena is at the creative helm of her second venture (her first, Incantrix Productions is very alive and kicking, delivering insanely creative live events and epic LARP scenarios) into the world of gaming with Rainbow Unicorn Games. Their motto? Women, POC, Indigenous & Queer stories are rarely considered by the video game industry, and yet we make up the majority of people playing. It’s time to make games for this majority. At Rainbow Unicorn Games Athena is assembling a team unlike any other in the industry to create a style and premise of game without violence, preconceptions of gender, race, or body-type and with deep and engaging story lines. Like most trailblazers there are bumps and struggles along the way. In the interview Athena talks about some of that, and how she got to where she is.

S02E18: Lady Mekaella - Proving that smart, determined women can change anything... even repressive standards of beauty.
If you're a fan (even a casual one) of Lady Mekaella, you've seen a lot more of her than you have most of our other guests. Her talents are varied, to say the least, including costume design, stilt walking, fire eating, dance, singing, and so so much more. There is no way to see the vibrant and imaginative costumes she creates and not be clear of how exceptionally gifted she is as a seamstress. Lady Mekaella uses all of these formidable talents in her nerdlesque shows, and self-describes as a stripper. Brassy and unapologetic she embraces her profession and seems to revel in the art, power play, and (at least a little) the inevitable pearl-clutching that job elicits from some. Lady Mekaella is stunning. Her photos appearing in your Instagram, FB, or any other feed will stop you in your tracks every time just from the sheer beauty of the images. That's not accidental. She works hard to get the pictures perfect, the costumes vibrant, the lighting exact, and then to add just enough personality and zazz to bring it all together.

S02E17: Reketta Peterson - Revolutionizing healthcare practice for minorities... all the way from Alaska~
When most of us think of exceptional thought leaders driving an agenda of inclusiveness and trying to force the medical establishment to be better, do better, and treat better - especially those who come from minority groups we don't usually picture a fierce Black woman, who is a health practitioner in Alaska. Heck, most of us probably didn't realize there ARE Black women in Alaska (with right around 3% of the Alaskan population being Black there is a reason for that). Yet, there she is. Reketta Peterson and her practice, Arise Counselling is helping Alaskan citizens stay "Boo'd Up" - building connections and helping people maintain social networks in a time that we're all struggling to remember how to engage with others. As a BIPOC Health Equity Consultant Reketta does something just as important, at a systemic level. Here's how she describes it: At the root of poor quality services lies subtle and often overlooked discriminatory practices stemming from Medical Racism, Gender bias, and Weight Discrimination. As your consultant, I take the time to look at your organization’s specific needs for success in order to curate an experience that positively impacts staff and clients. As a note to listeners, in this episode Michele and Reketta talk about some deeply personal and potentially triggering topics including post partum depression, and SIDS. While they bring it to a healthy place we want people to be warned about it.

S02E16: Tasha Sattler - Creating wearable art for movement artists
What is art? Do you think of paintings? Sculpture? Art takes so many forms and functions within our community and means different things to everyone. Beautiful, hand-crafted functional things like jewelry, ceramics, and textiles hold a special place as art that we can engage with everyday. Tasha Sattler not only makes wearable art, in the form of jewelry, she specializes in creating it for dancers! During this conversation Tasha spills all the insider tea about the fine jewelry biz. From diamonds to platinum, and how to be a great customer. She's hilarious and down to earth - but above all insanely talented. Hopefully this episode will inspire you to look for something bespoke, perhaps custom from Tasha or someone like her, when you're next in the market for a special, beautiful item. Here's more about Tash in her own words: Growing up I was a really imaginative and creative kid. At 15, I began working in a local jewelry store where I spent a lot of time learning the ins and outs of diamonds, gemstones and fine jewelry. After university, I travelled for a few years but kept being pulled back to jewelry. I felt that jewelry design and goldsmithing could be the perfect blend of having a job that is both in demand but also allowed me to be creative everyday. I graduated from FVCC in Kalispell, Montana in 2008 with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Goldsmithing and Jewelry Arts as well as an Associate of Applied Science Degree in in 3D Jewelry Design and Production. Since then I have worked as a bench jeweler, training under multiple goldsmiths in various disciplines, with the majority of my career being in fine jewelry repair, diamond jewelry and engagement ring manufacturing. A few years ago it was brought to my attention by some dancer friends of mine, how little jewelry was available on the market that represented the lifestyle of serious professional dancers. Most dance genres, other than ballet, are barely represented and there is even less currently available for male dancers. If dance is your life and you have spent years training and practicing, there should be an option available other than jewelry designed for five year old ballerinas shouldn’t there? I not only wanted to reflect the passion of dancers with our collections, but I really feel that in a world full of mass production and fast fashion you deserve something better. So I set out to create a line of jewelry that is high quality, hand crafted and timeless. Made from precious metal in small hand finished batches, it is meant to be a true reflection on the outside of how you feel on the inside. When I am not in the jewelry studio, yeah right like that happens, you can find me hanging out with my amazing husband Shawn, our two little girls Elyse and Lydia, and my stepson Nate (otherwise known as my free gift with purchase).
