Alyson is a family counsellor and one of Canada’s most recognized parenting experts. She is the resident expert on many national TV and radio shows, as well as hosting her own TV show The Parenting Show and the podcast Parenting The Adlerian Way.
She has three best-selling parenting books with Harper Collins Canada: Breaking The Good Mom Myth, Honey I Wrecked The Kids and Ain’t Misbehavin’. Alyson has spoken on stages all around the globe, including Bulgaria, Uruguay, Belgium, Switzerland and more.
Besides conducting workplace wellness webinars, and parenting classes, Alyson also trains counsellors and teachers. Brands such as Dove, Facebook, Earth

Alyson helped establish two nursery schools and still works closely with elementary school boards in her region. She leads an active online community for parents of teens and tweens with a mission to raise the next generation of global leaders committed to social equality, inclusion, diversity and democracy.
The host Judy Librach is also delighted to welcome Leslie Gottlieb to the program. Leslie is the VP of Marketing for Smartbottle™, a revolutionary, eco-friendly and reusable water bottle. And there’s a Smartbottle™ giveaway too! Perfect for students, parents and the whole family! To get in on this exciting giveaway visit @theblissminute on Instagram for all of the contest details.
Leslie studied Theatre Arts at the University of Victoria, where she graduated with distinction and earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. She was then accepted into the prestigious Radio and Television Arts program at Toronto Metropolitan University, furthering her education in the realm of media and broadcasting. Leslie began her professional career in radio, working as an on-air personality for 92.5 Jack FM and The Fan 590. She then found her niche in television, producing both live-action and animated children’s programs at DHX Media on shows like That’s So Weird and The Latest Buzz.
After her time in television, her entrepreneurial spirit led her to co-found KLP, a design-driven video production company specializing in producing original and branded content for global brands like Sony PlayStation, TD Bank and National Ballet of Canada, just to name a few. At KLP, Leslie steered a wide range of productions from ideation through to launch across all media platforms.
After several years of successfully leading her company, Leslie stepped back from the business, to start her family and become a Mom to her two sons. While on mat leave, Leslie further honed her skills by earning her Real Estate license, enhancing her professional versatility.
As Leslie’s maternity leave concluded, she stepped into her most recent and meaningful role as Vice President of Marketing for Smartbottle™, Your Reusable Bottle for Life. There she blends her extensive background in media production, marketing and advertising with her passion for health, wellness, and eco-conscious living.
With heartfelt dedication, Leslie is grateful to be spearheading the team that is introducing Smartbottle™ to a global audience, empowering people to stay hydrated while helping the planet too — a mission she is wholeheartedly committed to.
