About Me

Hi! I am Rubiena,  Mom to a 12 year old very opinionated, passionate, brilliant, loving daughter and my 9 year old busy, full of laughs and sometimes exhausting little boy.  Married for 20 years to an amazing husband and very hands on Dad who still makes me laugh.

Rubiena Duarte profileI am a Toronto born and raised woman but have all been adventurous at heart with a love of travel.  My life has lived up to this and I have worked across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and North America and lived in South Africa, Texas and New York and even Silicon Valley for 7 months!.  These global experiences are often reflected in my blog.

I also have over 17 years’ experience in the corporate sector as a senior leader driving employee engagement, leadership programs, diversity & inclusion, empowering women and heading up community upliftment efforts. Some of my most rewarding work has been working with women in rural villages in Africa who were survivors of domestic violence.

With my focus on enabling people, and especially women and young girls to bring their whole, authentic self to any environment drop me a line if you want to chat about having Supermom Adventures as a speaker at your next event.  This can range from women in the workplace, work/life integration, inclusion at schools and any topic related to the dimensions of diversity.

I am very interested in taking those steps to a more balanced approach to life.  That’s the secret of being a Supermom – making sure you have the time for yourself and yes, I know balance is very relative!   My blog will focus on how us moms can make sure we find the time for ourselves, for self-care and for fun so we can continue being Supermoms!

Being more balanced and refueling ourselves places us in better state of mind which always has a positive impact on the entire family.  If you feel good so will your family!!
