''You can take a horse to water, but you can't make him drink''. Somehow, Nathalie can.

Hi I'm Nathalie 

My parents were freaks!!!

They never put a gate by the stairs when my brother and I were babies because they never wanted to imply that we could fall. They would instead say: “Be careful around there”. They didn’t say: “Don’t fall”. If they needed me to bring a full glass of water to the table they would just say: “Use a strong firm hand and bring this glass to the table” instead of saying: “Don’t spill it!”, creating anxiety around the action of carrying the water.

There were signs everywhere in the house with motivational phrases like: “You can be everything you want”; “Yes you can”; “You will miss 100% of the shots you won’t take”; “If you’re going to do it, do it right”, etc.

On Sundays, we didn’t go to church (although we are Christian Catholics), instead, my parents would make us sit in the living room to listen to motivational tape cassettes from Jean-Marc Chaput, Zig Ziglar, Og Mandino, etc. Needless to say, I was brainwashed into positive thinking at a very young age.

I believe that my life purpose is to motivate, inspire and support people to discover that they have everything inside themselves in order to be their best and live to their full potential.

I got my first “calling” to help people at a very young age. My parents would not read us Disney stories at night. They would either sing us a song to put us to sleep with their guitar (which explains my love for music), or they would tell us motivational stories.

Here is my favourite bedtime story: It is about an old man on the beach, who was throwing back the starfishes in the sea, one by one. A little girl asked him: “What are you doing sir?” and the old man responded: “I am saving the starfishes from dying, as the tide brought them to shore, they will dry and die if I don’t throw them back in the sea.” The little girl looked at the endlessly long beach and said: “But sir, no offence, but there are so many, you can’t save them all! It doesn’t really make a difference.” And the old man responded, as he was showing the little girl that starfish that he was holding in his hands: “Well my dear, for this particular starfish, it makes a whole world of difference.” I was thinking: “When I grow up, I will be a starfish saviour and save them all, one at a time!” And the rest is history.

I was born in Saint-Raymond, a small town near Quebec city Canada. I lived in Quebec for a big chunk of my life as a successful entrepreneur, co-owner of a manufacturing business in the printing industry, with over 50 employees, mastering human resources and sales techniques until I moved to Toronto, Ontario where I got seriously into fitness, personal training and nutrition consultation all while accumulating 16 more years of experience in sales in the Natural Food industry.

After reaching the top of my game as the No.1 Fitness Instructor in Canada, I realized that being my own personal best wasn’t fulfilling me. I started to realize that even though I was helping people, my clients were not successful because I was giving them a better kale salad recipe or showing them a different way of doing push-ups. They thrived because they were changing the way they thought. Their mindset was influenced by mine. I then started to study neuroscience and the astonishing powers of the brain. I got a Neuro-Linguistic Programming Master and Life Coaching certifications and spent the last 10 years developing a system combining my experience as an entrepreneur, my health and wellness knowledge and the specific processes I use with the thousands of clients I have helped reaching their full potential.

I work with clients one-on-one and propel people into the life they want through my coaching, online courses, books, events, and speaking engagements Keynotes and Conferences. I also continue to teach fitness classes, 33 years and counting, using fitness as an introductory platform in order to help people be their best. I also work with kids in schools, which gives me even wider audience to impact and improve people’s lives because I believe if certain values are planted at a young age, flourishing happens sooner in life.

I now live in White Rock, British Columbia with my loving husband Duff and we are celebrating our 18th anniversary this year.

The Adventures of Captain Vic

Co-Founder TYA Education


For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher. My love of children has been with me for a long time. At the age of ten, I was already babysitting my young cousins. Later, I became involved in leading different groups of children in my community. Therefore, it was natural for me to choose a career in education.  While studying at university, I went to France to improve my skills as a summer camp instructor.  I worked there for a summer and came back filled with unique new experiences.

With my bachelor's degree, I left for Ontario to be a teacher. For six years, I taught French immersion: first for the Petawawa Military Base School, then for the Durham School Board of Education in Oshawa.  I taught kindergarten to grade seven. I was also a music teacher and a librarian. 

Back in Quebec in my native area, I still teach with the same passion, for Portneuf School District. With my guitar and my devoted puppet Pierre Roquet, I am perfectly happy with my precious students.

When Nathalie spoke to me about her project to create a program for children, her enthusiasm and dynamism easily convinced me to join her. We connected from the beginning and the pleasure of building this program grew unexpectedly fast.

Each story was tested with my kindergarten students. Their great interest in the characters and their adventures confirmed that we were on the right track and that this program filled a need. I also validated the questions and discussions with them for each unit. Adjustments were made along the way to enhance this program. Students often sing Captain Vic's song and remind me to give instructions with words that would please our Captain! These reminders clearly demonstrate the integration of the concepts taught.

It is with pride that we are now offering THINK Yourself® POSITIVE; a proven program to develop self-esteem, awareness of inner dialogue and positive thinking. Reprogramming thoughts with positive words is possible, even at the age of five.

I would have loved to have had access to the THINK Yourself® ACADEMY for Kids' programs thirty-three years ago when I started teaching, for the well-being of the students.
