Who We Are

The TWS Board of Directors is a small group of individuals in the Squamish/ Sea to Sky corridor who are passionate about wellness.

Their goal is to:

  • empower people to live their lives to their fullest by being their healthiest.
  • make health services and learning healthy life-skills affordable and accessible for all.

Michelle Honsberger

As a Chartered Professional Accountant, Michelle has spent the last decade working in government, private sector, and non-profit roles, but her favourite role is using her financial expertise to improve the decision-making and operations of non-profits. After spending years weekend-warrioring on the Squamish trails, she and her partner finally made the full-time move in early 2021. She is a strong advocate for affordable and diverse mental health services for all, and whole-heartedly believes in TWS’s mission to offer these services to the Squamish community. Michelle is happiest spending hours running or biking on trails, fuelled by coffee and burritos.

Julia Bresalier

Supporting and promoting wellbeing has infused Julia’s work, and life, for over 20 years.  The powerful connection between mind, body and spirit has been reinforced time and again in her work with children, youth, families and communities as well as in her personal life.  It is exciting that these connections are being recognized more broadly and supported by research. Undergraduate degrees in psychology, criminology and women’s studies and a graduate degree in leadership combined with experience in community social service, advocacy and currently as a learning consultant galvanize her commitment to supporting the development of an organization that is values based, innovative and passionate about enhancing the lives of Sea to Sky community members.  Julia is passionate about enjoying skiing, mountain bike riding, rock climbing and her newest discovery, stand up paddle boarding in the local rivers.  These activities are most enjoyed when she is out with her family, soaking in the life-affirming beauty of her natural surroundings.

Elizabeth Grant

As a Registered Nurse, a mom and active community member, Liz has been part of Tantalus Wellspring since it’s inception.
She has worked in a variety of areas over the years, from hospital acute care to community Public Health – with a special interest in Aboriginal health and Health Promotion.  She has worked in rural Northern Canada as well as done volunteer work in the Philippines and Africa, and has been working with Squamish Nation since 2005.
She values an “upstream” and holistic approach to wellness and community vitality.  And especially appreciates the teachings of the medicine wheel, which acknowledges the person as a whole -the interconnection of mind, body and spirit.
As a parent, an outdoor enthusiast and musician, Elizabeth brings a variety of life experiences to the Tantalus Wellspring table.  She joined the TWS initiative as she saw the need for more accessible and affordable mental-wellness services in Squamish, and was inspired by the other members and their vision.  “It has been an exciting process, watching TWS evolve and to be a part of this dynamic group of wonderful people”.

Brent Stewart

A long-standing interest in the mind & cognition, a desire to help others and a truly great voice made hypnotherapy and mind training a natural fit for Brent.
