Who is the WOMAN ON FIRE?
The “Woman on Fire” is creating a blazing path, creating success for not only herself, but for those behind her. She boldly shares her journey on this road with others so they too can appreciate her challenges, witnessing her tears, but most of all…the smiles of accomplishment. While on the road full of pot holes and blind spots, the “Woman on Fire” seeks mentorship and support through the hills and valleys of business. She is not afraid to fail because she knows that in her failure lie her lessons for success that will bring her from the darkness and into the light. “Women on Fire” are known for listening to that small voice in the depths of their inner being, choosing to believe in themselves when no one else does.
“Woman on Fire” is about allowing yourself to discover and share your gifts with the world. We honour the “Women on Fire” at this gala. The evening will begin with a WOF Mingle, where all sponsors have an opportunity to present themselves followed by a catered sit down dinner. Guests will have the opportunity to hear from 5 outstanding speakers that will lead to the honouring of the 5 women nominated for WOF awards.

She then went on to begin her chiropractic education at the prestigious Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, graduating 2007.

Born in Bristol, UK, of Jamaican parents, Sandra grew up listening to the likes of Aretha Franklin, Amy Grant, Jessy Dixon, Andrae Crouch and Anita Baker. Her earliest memories of singing and songwriting were when she as 12 years old, performing at many conferences, festivals and fronting 2 bands. Sandra came out of these experiences stronger and prepared for her own solo career.
Her classy, refined vocals have been compared to Desiree, Anita Baker and Sade. In Sandra Godley, we see the embodiment of all the things in a diva we hold dear. Beautiful, yet somehow humble, Sandra Godley is so wonderfully talented that she has evolved from being just a singer/songwriter, to being a stylish, multi-genre songstress.
Easily adapting to all of contemporary black music’s offerings, Godley has performed funk, disco, house, soul, and R & B effortlessly.
By herself, Sandra Godley has evolved from the embodiment of the dance-diva to an elegant songstress. Always creative and spontaneous, Godley’s use of power house vocals in conjunction with the ability of holding an audience spellbound as she solos with an acoustic guitar, has taken black music to higher levels. Sandra has performed on many television and radio networks including BBC, Sky and God TV.
With 2 (largely self-penned) albums already under her belt, Sandra’s passion as a singer, songwriter, gifted communicator and entertainer is contagious to anyone who meets her. In 2005
Sweet Surrender demonstrates a variety of influences, showcasing the depth and flexibility of her abilities to include 11 tracks with a variety of styles including a twist of R & B, disco, church, and soul where she undoubtedly brings her signature energetic powerhouse vocals with an abundance of love and encouragement.
Junon Macéus is an author with a background in health sciences, with a B.A.Sc. in Nutrition and a B.Sc. in Human Kinetics. Throughout her academic career, she has done research within the health science field. She volunteered at the University of Toronto Sexual Education Center. She is the author of the novelette The Mandatory Orgasm (2008) and writes about various aspects of sexuality and relationships through my monthly TMO e-newsletter (2009-present).
Once Junon started exploring energy work, she discovered her gift as an unusually powerful healer. By training with various energy modalities and through careful experimentation, Junon learned how to use the full potential of what comes naturally to her. The results have been impressive. After one session, some people have reported that they have been healed from ailments such as depression, diabetes type 2, menstrual cramps, insomnia, acid reflux and chronic constipation.
She has completed Level 1 and Level 2 of the Therapeutic Touch program and has created an Energy Healing CD (2013) for her clients.
The Mandatory Orgasm depicts the journey of a young dietitian, who is told by her family doctor that unless she has an orgasm with her fiancé, she will remain childless. This unusual phenomenon is said to affect a growing number of the female population in North America. The young woman is therefore forced to face issues she ignored for years and start speaking her truth.
