Live It Active is owned and operated by Morgan Craig-Broadwith, a health and wellness specialist with a genuine passion for helping people find balance, peace and ensuring they have a little fun along the way.
Morgan started Live It Active back in 2011, supporting organizations in southern Ontario to manage stress and find fun in physical activity. Realizing she needed a full-time income (as a start-up usually requires a wee bit of time), Morgan and her now hubby, traveled a few thousand kilometers or so and landed in Calgary, Alberta.
Since arriving in Alberta, Morgan has worked in the non-profit and private sectors, specifically in oil and gas. In her various roles, Morgan has connected with thousands of Albertans to talk about the importance of mental and physical health. She has spearheaded workplace mental health programs, education sessions and seminars, and developed the FIVEinFIVE campaign: a mental health and resiliency initiative to support the five in five of us who have the capacity to build mental health (not simply the 1 in 5 who will develop a mental illness).
Live It Active, back from a brief hiatus, focuses on three pillars of health and well-being: mental, social and physical. Morgan firmly believes we need balance (or close to it) in all three areas to experience some level of peace and contentment. We are pleased to offer a variety of health resources throughout Alberta from retreats to education seminars and sessions for teams, leaders and organizations interested in making a positive health change. This summer, we will launch our first Rejuvenation Retreat geared towards new parents, and continue to offer public education opportunities as requested.
Morgan lives in Calgary, Alberta, with her husband and daughter. She received her M.Sc., Exercise Physiology and B.A. (Honours), Psychology from Queen’s University. During her maternity leave, Morgan started the Mountain Mommas Hiking Group, enjoying several beautiful hikes throughout the Rocky Mountains. Morgan is Manager, Fund Development for Young Women in Energy, a non-profit, volunteer-run, female empowerment organization and supports the Food Bank whenever she can. As an Albertan from Ontario, Morgan spends as much time in the mountains as possible – hiking, meditating and exploring the great beyond.
