Nominee Program

Winners were chosen by a small selection committee within the WWC Committee on October 28th.


Little Ghost Creative

Robyn is an organized, analytical thinker, design mentor, podcast listener, tiny home enthusiast and, as Founder and Creative Director of Little Ghost Creative, your guide through the branding process.

After seven years of leading in-house brand and marketing teams at places like Brandish, SkipTheDishes and Neo Financial, Robyn left agency life to focus on living a more purposeful life.

Launched in 2020, Little Ghost Creative is a conscious branding studio, crafting strategic and bold brands for visionary female leaders and purposeful businesses that have a positive impact in their community and for the planet.

Robyn works collaboratively with her clients, guiding them through the process of strategy-led brand naming, thoughtful brand positioning and designing beautifully sustainable brand identities. Little Ghost Creative has worked with ethical businesses in both North American and Europe, and has helped craft personal brands for some of Winnipeg’s most inspiring female leaders such as Liz Choi and Joy Loewen.

In 2021, Robyn was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a demyelinating disease causing the body’s own immune system to attack the myelin coating of the nerves in the brain and spinal cord. As a result of this nerve damage Robyn experiences periods of vision loss, but she doesn’t let this hold her back from succeeding in a visual career. This chronic illness has caused Robyn to reshape the way she lives and works, allowing her to see things differently than your average creative.

Robyn loves the challenge of being a creative entrepreneur, using her skills as a design thinker to improve both her business and the creative process for her clients. Her goal for 2023 is to travel while working remotely and to fill her apartment with more local art and houseplants

Big Mama House of Pain 

 Coach Michelle Braithwaite, (aka: Big Mama) is the owner and founder of Big Mama’s House of Pain (BMHOP). With over five years experience in the fitness industry, Michelle has done it all. Michelle is a proud mother of two amazing children and has been an athlete her entire life. She started playing sports at the age of nine, and continues to involve herself in the community through volunteering, organizing charity events and playing slow pitch. 


On January 2, 2015, Michelle had her first Grand Mal Seizure. Two weeks  later, she experienced another Grand Mal Seizure and that left her with  brain damage. She gained 110lbs during this time. She was told by her doctor that her kidneys and liver were failing and  that if she didn’t make an immediate health change that she would die. This is why, on May 15, 2016, she joined a HIIT workout program and ended up losing 141lbs in  five years. After working out continuously, she went from being a gym member, to working the front desk, to a full-time Coach and Sales Manager. It was here that Michelle’s love for fitness truly came to be. When Michelle was a gym manager, her location won the Community Votes Winnipeg Award for the 2021 Gold Gym Winner, during the height of the COVID pandemic. Unfortunately, a year after that, the pandemic made it hard to scale sales and with a heavy heart the gym was forced to shut the doors, leaving her and her community at a loss. This is when Michelle decided to take matters into her own hands and open up her  own business, BMHOP.
