Episode Summary

In this episode of The Catalyze Podcast I interview Marjorie Warkentin. Marjorie Warkentin spent most of her working career as a nurse in a healthcare setting. As a woman that has a heart wired to care for others you can also find her spending time giving back to her community. She has actively supported overburdened families with young children, while also dedicating her time to creating community development as well as facilitating healthcare leadership development. Marjorie has also been a trailblazer in many areas of her life, one being the main income earner for her household, providing for her husband and three children way before that was a common situation. She also started running marathons in her fifties which inspires others to do the same. Marjorie has not let retirement slow her down. After leaving her full-time nursing career, she has embraced a new role of being a speaker, author and life coach. Marjorie is a life-long learner with a passion for connecting theory to the practical applications that lead to transformation. With her wealth of experience and broad perspective on life, she is able to share her wisdom in accessible and inspiring ways. In her second half of life, Marjorie is a glowing example of the life that is possible when you combine curiosity, compassion, and kindness with a willingness to be vulnerable and explore life's moments with a beginner's mind and playful spirit. She is passionate about modelling a life that can be lived with lightness and flow as she has learned to trust herself and be at peace with uncertainty. Marjorie is a wife, mother, and grandmother who lives in Abbotsford, BC.
