"And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!”


And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.”

Gillian Rowinski

My bio should read “Gillian hates writing bios”.  Seriously.  I write all the time and writing my own bio is painful.  Like, stepping on Shopkins in the middle of the night painful.  Are Shopkins still cool?  I don’t know, but I have a rubbermaid container full of them.  In thirty years when Shopkins are collectibles I’m going to make a damn fortune.  


Okay, stop procrastinating Rowinski!!  The people want to know who you are.  Get on with it!



I live in Port Coquitlam, BC with my husband Chris and our three kids (Zosia, Lily and Ander).  I am a writer, a certified professional coach, and the creator of Unlearning SuperMom.  Prior to my work as a writer and coach, I spent ten years in the corporate world as a Human Resources professional specializing in leadership development, change management and performance management.   As a coach, I currently specialize in neuroscience and transformational coaching.  As a writer, I contribute regularly on the Huffington Post.


Other bits and bobs:

I’m a gregarious introvert (which means I can work a party, but I need a nap after).  I’m addicted to books.  I care deeply about being a conscious parent, and how I’m raising my kids.  I love enthusiasm, and laughing, and good music, and good chocolate.  I refuse to take myself too seriously.  I am deeply curious and love listening.  


Most importantly, I’m so glad you’re here.  In a world full of noise and distraction, I am deeply grateful for the time that you spend reading, practicing, and spreading the word.  


Lots of love to you all!
