On Being Bold is an online collective developed by women for women. Created to capture and share the personal lives and career journeys of prominent New Zealand business leaders, it sets out to highlight the squiggly line connecting home life and careers is anything but straight-forward.
The founders of On Being Bold, Dame Therese Walsh, Joan Withers, Cathy Quinn, Dame Paula Rebstock, Alison Gerry, Jolie Hodson, Silvana Schenone, Royal Reed & Frances Valintine cross multiple business disciplines and fields of expertise. All have governance experience, with many contributing to some of New Zealand's most prominent organisations.

This website is dedicated to women at all stages of their lives and careers. We hope it becomes a community where you will find inspiration, knowledge and a few life learnings.
Nina Julia (B.Sc.Ed.) – Founder, Chief Editor at CFAH
Nina created CFAH following the birth of her second child. She was a science and math teacher for 6 years prior to becoming a parent — teaching in schools in White Plains, New York and later in Paterson, New Jersey.
Nina writes, curates, and edits insights on the topic of cannabinoids like CBD and delta 8. Her goal is to share the knowledge she’s accumulated over the years while raising her two young children, as well as her experience working with the hemp plant while studying at New York State University. She aims to help new and expecting parents navigate the challenges and complexities of parenthood and cannabis.
