SheWorth was founded in 2017, when co-founder Lara began to confide in her friend, co-founder Kim, that she had been in an abusive relationship with a narcissist. Kim, a registered psychologist, began to introduce Lara to psychological concepts and evidence-based healing strategies, that helped Lara heal from the trauma her abusive relationship had inflicted. Together, they quickly realized there was no platform for all these resources, and seeing how much these concepts and evidence-based healing strategies helped Lara, they knew they could help so many women. And so, SheWorth was born.
What We Do
SheWorth is a platform for women to share their stories, learn to understand themselves and create positive change. In a post #MeToo world, we are on the cusp of the most significant women’s movement; a fourth wave of feminism which will propel women forward. SheWorth provides science-based strategies, curated by Registered Psychologist and Chief Healing Officer Kim, for promoting self-worth, improving mental health, learning to have successful relationships and ultimately changing the world! Women have come a long way, but we have a long way to go. Believing in our own self-worth is the first step on that journey.
The Women Who Made It All Happen
Co-Founder, Chief Growth Officer
Lara is the founder and CEO of Lusomé Sleepwear, the technical luxury sleepwear brand founded to help the millions of women suffering from night sweats. Following a 20-year career as a successful executive with one of Canada’s largest retailers, Lara founded Lusomé in 2012 after seeing her sister battle breast cancer. Lusomé is award winning, doctor endorsed and now sold globally. Lara’s mission throughout her career has been to wake up in service of women, and this evolved into a more social mission with the creation of SheWorth. After fleeing her own abusive relationship, Lara realized how many women were suffering in silence with similar experiences and felt compelled to share her deeply personal story with the goal of helping other women. The importance of Brave Moments emerged to Lara throughout her journey, from starting her corporate career, founding her company and interacting with thousands of women while public speaking and in co-founding the SheWorth platform. Lara is a regular contributor to Thrive Global, and is a mentor and for the Foundation for Women Entrepreneurs and the UofC. Lara is a mom of two boys, is passionate about yoga, hiking and tennis and currently calls Calgary, Alberta home.
