"Very much looking forward to new york getting back to normal in that respect. I think we all are it'll happen. It's going to happen. It will happen minute. Just gonna so. So where do you see yourself in ten years interesting. Like if you'd asked me you know. Even a couple years ago. I would say you know on broadway in in in some musical and really in the thursday because i've found and even in interviews that i've had once you book a broadway show. It's easier to book the next one. It's getting them first one. That's at hurdle. So it's a matter of continuing on and progressing that so that would be like well. That's rescue myself. I'm a broadway performer. That's what i do. I'm able to then parlay that into doing other concerts it just kind of then blossoms into into other opportunities. But now i still want to do broadway. And i still know that i'm capable of it but i also know that for the most part it's outta my hands and i have to come to peace with will. What do i want to do like okay. Broadway is a place that i want to do it. But what is that. I want to do on broadway. And that is i want to be invested in in in a character that touches audience. I wanna be in a story that that is mutating something and and sometimes that meaning can be fluff. I've done fluff musicals. That are a joy to do. And i've done those. That are that are deep and dark and have a lot of of like i have to go through the paces in it so it it can run the gamut of that. But i've stopped letting broadway be the be all and i really want to be someone who who is working but is is working in such a way that that i'm i'm meeting the creative and artistic side of myself that doesn't depend on the place it just depends on the the what it depends on that that particular play or musical. And that's what. I'm trying to do more of before the pandemic i was. I was being more selective with the kind of shows with the kind of roles that i would go out for. So i'm not just saying yes to everything now. I'm a bit more like yes. Yes yes just give me. But but but but eventually yeah. I'll be able to get back to being more selective and there were even times that you know this big show would come on going to be like really really what i do. I mean it'd be nice to do that work. But i'd rather do this. You know like for example. One of my favorite shows is peer in the star catcher and there was going to be this big big production and they wanted to bring me in for lord astor now. I have auditioned. In many iterations broadway off broadway tour for black stash. Because i know. I am black. Stash like like when it comes to again. I was talking about connecting to a character I i love the character in connect to it and my auditions always went so well it was called back each time however they were bringing in lord astronauts like. I would like to audition for black sash. Well we're not really thinking of you for that. But how lord astor and i turned it down i was like all i know is if i do book i'm just going to be watching black stash that whole rehearsal process performance mean why can do that and then and then i'm not having any fun. Yeah now. I'm in a better place. Where i think in a what lord. Astor would be a fun role to do so. It's their different places where we find ourselves in our career where we can. Sometimes it's not the right time emotionally. I'm not ready for that. But i have a bigger vision now. And i'm not so focused on broadway that it excludes everything else. I'm able to to take a wider view of what my career can be. Well i think it's i think it's just expansive six expansive and i look forward. Certainly hope so. I look forward to the realms that you keep diving into may more commercial work come. Your way may more of singing opportunities as well as voiceover. You just have such a great voice such a great voice and so i wish shoot made more abundance. Keep loving your way my friend. Thank you. actually it's such a joy to talk to your your alight yourself.

The networks the access to capital that's required to be entrepreneurs times. Women tend to take on more than their share of childcare and housework burns. Which of course makes it tougher to balance work in responsibilities. Even women do get past a startup. Problem is you'd like to donate into a skin problem which prevents them from growing their businesses. The same way and you. The final point is that on one thing saturday doors in incubators and support entrepreneurs.

Lead enterprises are kida canada's economy an rv see helping to accelerate and grow these businesses sponsoring the canadian woman entrepreneur awards a celebration of impacting achievement. And she oh a radically generous community supporting women working on the to do list. Women led businesses and the economy matter star be saying i was awoken by another streaming match but this time i heard beer bottles smashing on the kitchen floor and my mom's crying and screaming and so i ran downstairs and there. She was face down crying and he over her. I thought he was going to finish her. Off points chatter. That matters with tony. Chapman continues on the iheartradio canada. Talk network presented by rbc jenner from our channel chatter that matters jennifer stories a hero's journey. You're just tuning in. It was a young child found herself in the most dire circumstances abusive stepfather. A motherhood band deserve but tenacious finds a life of faith pursuit and passion. So did your your dad stepmother and your sisters were. They all part of that village that got cheated reach for branch. Branch has started to rediscover. That does that. there's still this magical human being inside. I sure because the last the last time i left my mother for good i was eighteen years old and she had kicked me out of the house or a long time at two. Am parked my entire car and never looked back and ended up moving to toronto. When i was twenty just hope in a dream and knowing that i would figure it out i worked very hard hospitality and yes. My sister's my dad friends colleagues strangers even my mentors over time my business partner today. My husband today. These are all people that i've met along the way that have helped me heal. They've they've been there for me in some way shape or form your with your dad your stepmother you're starting to feel better about yourself but you do another tour of duty at a guilt or whatever you decide to go back and try one more time to save your mom. How wilbur here. I think i was about fifteen. This time maybe sixteen. No i would have been sixteen because she bought me a car. It's strange because dr for years. Of course. I was angry and nine eleven on of all days. She gets into a car accident with my grandmother and my grandmother dies. I got this phone call from my dad. Saying i need to rush home and something happened to your mom found out that she almost died in the accident and felt guilty. I wanted to go back in and care for her to conditions and it was no more alcohol. No more fights. And i'll try one time and of course the alcohol in the fights didn't stop and that's how i ended up kicked out of the house at two. Am when i was eighteen Probably because i was i think disagreeing with her about Going to rescue her boyfriend from another bar fight and she got up. Said you weren't her parent your child. Yeah you just don't see it that way and even with my dad. I hid it from him because my dad to me was so perfect and always in the light. I didn't really share any of this with him until later in life he didn't really know what was going on the extent of what was going on. It's it sounds ridiculous. But i almost wanted to protect him from it so jennifer. Tell me what happens when you arrive in toronto with you own your car a knapsack that's filled with pain but also a loving father and knowing that you have an ability to work hard and make things happen. What happens next well. I really was determined to do things on my own as you can imagine. At this point. I trusted no one and i was not going to rely on anyone for anything so it just it started by being a workaholic. Really i landed a job with. Mls's in two thousand and six and then in two thousand eight. I ended up meeting my yoda jag. Who owned a staffing firm and And i started working for him I made my mark in staffing between two thousand eight. Two thousand eighteen started healing through being around the right people. The corporate world actually taught me a lot Therapy worked with a lot of therapists in specifically. Em dr is a great therapy for Ptsd and what. I was struggling with the work health. They kept me busy and busier. I was the last time. I had to follow a negative thoughts and so with that work become comes more independence war success Ended up with you. Know fancy car six figure salary and all kinds of materialistic things and Not only worked for so long. When i was thirty. I look at my vision board and it was lacking meaning and purpose and so i had to quickly work to figure that out and changed my direction because even the success i had attained was driven by fear. And it's not until that shifted. Was i really fulfilled. So what did you replace that with their sense of workaholic materialistic things trying to avoid your past by just focusing on the present. What did you bring into your life at age thirty. That really made you the remarkable person you are today so aside from all the tactical things that you can do to seek help and the resources that are out there and the people that you can position yourself around for me personally. It was about reconnecting with my christian. Faith i had walked away from god a long time ago. I no longer believed. And i had friends around me. That would always asked me to come back to church and and for me. I did in my early thirties. And i have to say. God has the power to heal faster than decades of therapy and i have so much proof. we're lots concerned nam's a whole other story But if you'll allow him in it's it's only when i certainly it's only that type of healing that allowed me to be more vulnerable and entrust people again and humility. And and so. Yeah so i a lot of it to Decades of therapy in great people but faith is extremely important in this equation jennifer question. Have you ever forgiven or did you ever forgive your mom and your stepfather hundred percents They've both been forgiven. And i saw him before he pass. It was really sad. You know he just some of his last words was just enjoy your life and don't worry about me. Don't don't be afraid. I felt so sad that he was dying cancer Assad situation But it was a great loss visit. I still remember him waving goodbye..

"To do something like that again. You talk about this sort of vicious cycle where you know things will get a little better and then your mom would bribe you to lie in court about the situation that must have compromised your value system. I mean how did you feel one side having the money knowing that you you're in some ways. Condoning are accepting Accepting the situation that was tough. I this is when things started shifting between her and i and going back to blaming her. I was extremely angry with her i became more angry with her than him. I almost felt like well. If you're gonna take him back you deserve to be abused. this is ridiculous and I thought i saved you. Thought of succeeded and here we are. Now we've got a court date and your back with him so you want me to change the story or whatnot hidden. Yes i'd be rewarded with gifts or money So yeah. I guess i felt used and Relationship changed with her. Then i lost a lot of respect and a lot of love for her. So jennifer talk to me a little bit about how you started going down the wrong path in life. It's a little confusing when the roles reverse. I felt like the parents. My mom felt like child to me. and so also alone. A lot. And i would hang out with adults mainly so i grew up pretty fast. I guess after. I was done with school and taking care of her or trying to save her. I would do whatever i needed to do to ease the pain or escape it at anything to do to distract me from the pain. That was anything from alcohol. Drugs hanging out with the wrong people Joy writing in stolen cars with friends. And how the witchcraft piece. That's interesting. I watched a movie called the craft way back when we're these. Witches were putting spells on people and the actually had power. It would work and go figure. I started dabbling into that. Maybe desperately trying to regain some sort of power or control within my situation and have to do a lot of spiritual cleansing too. Close those doors because that just a really weird. Time tony.

You also talked about in an article. I read blaming your mom and interview said you. She went from being your hero to zero. What was life like free trying to figure out your place in a home of constant alcohol abuse yelling physical battles. Who what did you do to cope. Well i'll and tell you a bit more but what it was like at home so you can understand how i got to these points. What i mentioned 'hero-to-zero. It's because when i was young i remember my mom being. She was my hero she. She was beautiful intelligence. she still is but she was successful. Very soft spoken never swore extremely polite. Very just a very loving kindhearted person. And i saw her change over the years into something else may be the little monster he was creating but she wasn't the same person anymore she would yell and scream and act like he did and she drank and i just i saw her her innocence. Leave and though so the same thing happened happened to me I can tell you an example of my stepfather and some of the things that would go on one of the nights or the first night. I think you had asked me. When did you first realize demons and it was one of the nights where my mom came running into my room because he was attacking her and she thought that if she jumped into the bed with me under the covers that he would leave her alone but it didn't work he just ripped off the blankets and rip fraud bed. And so that was my first introduction to the types of fights that would go on see. I'd be woken up a lot at three. Am by screams. And i would do a variety of things to try and jump in and help out. Sometime you nothing. Sometimes i would actually physically insert myself between the two of them. Sometimes they would actually wake me up and asked me to come downstairs and listen to their fight and almost says the moderator let them know who is right or wrong and like i said if they were both drinking it was either high to hide in a closet and tried to call the police myself. If my stepfather hadn't topped the phones rip them out of the wall. 'cause he's to do that or had to run to the neighbors fasten to use their phone but that was a last resort. Running to the neighbors was embarrassing. I i still remember their face when they opened the door. And i'm there at three. Am begging them to use their phone like the look of shock is just. I still remember that. And you're just a kid because at age thirteen you end up taking a knife. 'cause your mom's on the floor bleeding from a shattered glass. That took so much courage. I mean that could have been turned against you. How did you ever find it upon yourself to to step in front of a situation. That's a good question. I think i was changing as well being around that type of environment having to deal with these types of things on regular basis. I just had enough at that point. And i was trying to do my best to fix the problem and save her. I was awoken by a another screaming match. But this time i heard beer bottles smashing on the kitchen floor and my mom was crying and screaming and so i ran downstairs and there. She was face down crying and he was over her. And i i thought he was going to finish her off at that point when she lifted up her head. I saw the broken glass in her chest and she was bleeding and in an instance. I remember that he had this phobia of knives. I'm not sure why he was never afraid of guns or anything else but knives and my thirteen year old brain just looked over at the kitchen knives grabbed the biggest one i could find and it i mean how did i have the courage. Probably i wasn't even thinking i this or she would. She would die so that was not. I didn't think twice about it and I'll never forget his look because he was immediately jumped off from her and ended up crouched in a corner super scared looking up at me with a look in poorer. I think we were all horrified. That i have to stoop to that level and so everything stopped in that moment and faithfully and never had.

"For what was lacking and did she bring home a string of boyfriends or did she find remarried. Fine love like your dad. That is no. She never remarried. It was a string of boyfriends until she ended up with the one who abused her the most. What do you think she went after pop culture. They call bad boys. What do you think she was attracted to to people like that. I i didn't understand. I didn't understand how you could leave my quote unquote perfect dad but now understanding the cycle of abuse. I found out years later that she was actually abused as a child and it makes sense that she would leave. My perfect died for someone who would use her. Make sense to me now and the last person that she ended up with was by far the worst. I hope i actually hope. He's resting in peace. Now he died of cancer a few years after she left him and our relationship actually was better back then him and i he. He had a lot of demons and he was bipolar. And you could actually see it in his eyes when he would have an episode. He had these light green eyes. And when he i guess turned on her or especially. If he was drinking his eyes would turn dark gray and so if they were both drinking. That was game over the cops i called. My dad.

It's good to be back so up until age seven you describe your life as glorious. Take us back to that time. And why things were so magical yeah. I grew up in a small town. And i remember my family home being this sunny hockey lot of good memories there. There is no issues with my parents and just remember having a good time. A lot of friends on my street. My dad used to have memories of my died loving to brush my hair and my mom driving the around her cool car so it was a good time. It was just the three of us so your first nations. Oh gibb way and french canadian growing up. Did you identify with one or another. I actually identified with being french i. I went to french catholic schools. My dad is is from quebec and so identified with the french language and still speak with him in his side of the family on the indigenous side of things. My mother didn't really share that with me until later in my teens i actually didn't claim i nation status until then i'm not sure why i don't know if she was worried about the. Stereotypes are embarrassed. But i didn't. I didn't find out until later on so at eight seven. Your parents sit you down and tell you they're divorcing. How did you feel as a child. But that was the worst thing in my life. I remember that like it was yesterday. I remember sitting on my mom's la crying huge headache there. The living room was empty. And i think maybe that's when my feelings of wanting to fix become that fixer upper started. Because i just remember feeling like there's gotta be something i can do. Can't believe this is happening and your fought and won full custody and that dad that brushed your hair night you only got to see every second weekend. How did that make you feel It made me sad and angry and probably resentful over time. Because i felt like i was stuck between both of them Fighting over child support payments and everything else that comes along with parents being separated and then your dad is incredible role model remarries and with that. Obviously is a new stepmother. Did you did you feel your whole situation. Changed again for sure. I mean every child. I think does doesn't really want to see their parents split up so i don't think it would have mattered. Who was. I just didn't feel like it was right. I didn't want it to happen. And so i wasn't a fan of him. Remarrying at i and this your stepmother. How's your relationship with her. It's great now. We have a very loving relationship. But i feel or i felt like at the time. She resented me. Maybe i reminded her of my mother. I just always felt like. She favored her daughters more than more than myself. By my my steps i i. Sometimes i say i felt like cinderella minus than wicked stepsisters. My my sisters are they. We've always had a great relationship and very proud of them. Never had any issues with them. One of them's my baby. Sisters a respiratory therapist and my middle sister is a funeral director. they're awesome. They've always been soldiers. I'm by my size. So you're tethered to the footsteps of your mom was at a stable situation after your dad left. Not at all. I would say that. We moved around several different towns in northern ontario and around submarine and i went to about four different elementary schools in to high school before i graduated so always had this sense of needing to restart make new friends every year. So wasn't ideal. Did you ever find yourself in a situation where the cast or your bullied or just felt like you didn't belong this yet another place your member. id to. I always felt like that inside. But i think i did a good job hiding it. I always tried to appear pretty normal in front of people. And i think that's where the impostor syndrome started for me. I think at a very young age. I'm a. I'm actually writing a piece on that but i think it comes from from those times where you're trying to pretend like your normal and there's all this chaos going on at home. What does the kid due to find. Happiness when you're sort of tumbleweed rolling into a new town or your mum's rolling in a new boyfriend like the did you. Some people say they should journal or do art. Did you find anything escape to or do you just have to find a way to breathe and get through each day. Yeah i think. I used to be a bit of a perfectionist. Even back then as a child i guess i was trying to focus on what i can control. I would. If if i wrote something and it wasn't perfect i would rip apart the page and restarts aside from that i would say i understand now. That happiness is a choice but back van. Mom spoiled me a lot so it was. It was candy and restaurants and shopping and gifts maybe to make up.

So I think it goes back and forth I, don't think there's a wrong way right way but I think that understanding what sort of constraints you can live with. Is going to help you to be happier as you're working.
"menard" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW
"Home Depot and Menard's like, six times a day, and, of course, my other work, and you know they're wiping down the terminals that people use between customers. And it's it really is businesses, not just restaurant bar and restaurant. And in the food service industry, hospitality industry Britney Ruby Miller, but also every other industry and it seems like that's a lot safer when they're making you wear a mask. But, hey, you gotta wear mask to come in here and then what do we do on the weekends? We get together, family and friends and and I was in a couple birthday parties this weekend. Now they're outside. We're trying to social existence. But there's no protocols in place there on bits seems like if you're going to pick it up and spread it. That's where it's going to be because your guards down Yeah, And I mean, bars and restaurants are I mean, we We kind of are the Kobe police right now. You should We should trust the professionals. And my concern is if you shut bars down, you're gonna have a spike because you're gonna have people going to help parties and they they do not do. They don't use the EPA, you know, type of of sanitizer that we are happy to use. They don't use any of the products that we use. We're not going through and doing a once over everything time again gets up. I mean, we are. This is like surgical that what we're doing in restaurants and bars. You know, there are going to be out liars don't follow the rules and and that has been the restaurant advisory. That our group suggestion this entire time is that before we continue to put restrictions, we've got it and force and we gotta hold accountable the outliers who are not doing it right? The challenge with that is the budget is has been completely cut in half during this process, which you would expect that when you would want inspectors in restaurants and bars and they are overwhelmed. Now we're doing contact tracing. They are very busy. They appreciate the help. Like I said, this doom call that were on this little group in Cincinnati work trying to work together at the state level to get them answers because they're they're overburdened. And until we can enforce the outliers, you know to me just this logically thinking. A doctor coming in and just saying we'll shut it all down. Well, then why are we even wearing Mac If you're saying all employees and now all I have to wear masks? You believe that or not? I mean, we're all wearing Mac. People walk in the restaurant there wearing a mask. They go to the bathroom. There were no Mac. He sit down with your small group of people at a table and you can take it off to eat. It's just, you know, I'm very confused by the direction of the waves. Yeah, I just got this pretty. I mean, if you're cut a few weeks ago, a couple weeks ago, downtown in one places like it and I get it. I mean, you guys are scared to death. You know, You don't want to get shut down again because it's death for your industry Well to get to in just a minute, But it's that this poor manager was like pleading with tables, including someone at ours, like, Hey, listen, if you stand up You either have to If you stayed up, you have to have a mask on. But if you're sitting down, you don't need a mask on And you Khun during HQ like I don't know to two feet make all that big a difference. But if you're the high top like we were in one party one someone standing, you can't stand and drink. You got to sit and drink and it's just I guess I get it because you know people will wander around. I suppose That's the idea. If you're sitting, you're not moving. But the same time it's it's difficult for people trying to have a good time and and understanding the new dynamic and the thing is, it's much like workers, a Kroger or nurses whomever can't playing you guys, you guys are trying to figure it out just to keep your lights on. And your people working. I get that. I appreciate that. Right? Yeah, and whether I look at it really is if there's people you're that concerned and don't want to go out, and I don't want to, you know, like my dad, For example, I don't credit about him going out, but we can service him at home. We could do carry out we can still keep him happy and his small world But in order to do that, you have to have a business model that sustainable and restaurant can't operate a 25% so you start limiting that 25% restriction. The domino affected at its restaurants are going to shut down Most restaurant I had talked to numerous restaurant operators that are 1 to 2 weeks away. Some clothing there. PPP money is out. We don't know. You know, I hear there's rumors of another stimulus package, which is great. I do think that restaurants are going to be the beneficiary of some of that again, which we should But it's you know, we can't we cannot service our communities. And for us like we're doing, Neil Kid, Jeffrey, be milk it for what? $125. It's a steal it really 125 Still a lot of money, But let's say that you genuinely wanted to celebrate your 80th grandma's anniversary or birthday, and you can come for a family of four and get an entire entire meal. We can't do that if we're just operating a 25%. Well, not only that, too. I mean, you know the way you look at what if I went and had the experience and you know, it's Jeff Ruby culinary entertainment. There's there's a show behind. This thing to the meal is I'm getting something. I'm getting the presentation the service that you guys were known for all that. And that adds obviously cost to the meal. I'm just buying some meat in some asparagus and some 16 breaks bread and bring that home with cheese and warm it up. Yeah, OK, it's the same food doesn't quite taste the same. Freddie Sal just is good, but I'm looking at go while it's like, 30 bucks a person that's nothing. You know, If you're going to go out to a restaurant, you'd be hard pressed to go. A lot of places. You just dropped 30 bucks a head. But you're getting a five star meal in this case, but I'm missing the whole experience..

"menard" Discussed on KQED Radio
"MAURICE logos asked Rene Menard with the center on juvenile and criminal Justice to describe the conditions athletes facilities you walk in. And it really feels. Like a prison. You have large numbers of youth from across the state coming together, and they're in an institution that's inherently violent inherently relating and that becomes a part of their daily life. So when we spoke with youth every one of them could describe an experience in which they either witnessed or directly experienced violence. The other thing the report really hits on is this idea that after over a decade of court oversight brought on by a lawsuit by juvenile advocates. There was really prompted by suicides and violence staff abuse, including sexual violence deejay did emerge from that lawsuit. And I think that there was hope that it would be a better more rehabilitative place. It doesn't seem like you guys found that that's the case in in fact, that it might be sort of slipping back into where it was absolutely beyond. What we are seeing is occurring at the facilities. You have to also look at what is happening for youth after they're released. I think that's one of the greatest measure. We have at this point to see if the institution is doing what it sets out to do among the youth. We spoke to you. You have them all describing feeling very isolated when they come home feeling distant from their families. They come in as teenagers, and they come out as an adult at this point over seventy percent of youth are rearrested within three years of being released from D J. Our new governor governor has proposed moving this entire department out of the corrections department and into health and human services. Can you talk about what your reaction was when you heard that proposal? We were certainly encouraged that the governor decided to focus in on the division of juvenile Justice. We also recognize that the institution needs more than a switch in its agencies without more major reform. We are concerned that youth would continue to be subject to traumatizing conditions at D J facilities, and we need to begin reimagining juvenile Justice. More broadly in the state, and that's Rene minority. The center on juvenile and criminal Justice speaking with Marie Salah goes, I mean, it Kim.
