Erica Ehm

Erica Ehm is one of Canada's most recognized personalities, having started her career in the mid-80s as the voice of her generation on MuchMusic. Ehm is the Founder and Editor-in-chief of YummyMummyClub.ca -- the online destination for modern moms looking for adult stimulation. Her multimedia resume includes acting, award winning songwriter, playwright, author, journalist and most importantly, The Yummy Mummy Club.

It was her difficult transition from career woman to new mother that inspired Erica to create an online destination for women with children. Thousands of women have become devoted members of the Yummy Mummy Club, and Erica has become the passionate voice of a whole new generation -- Yummy Mummies.

A busy woman herself, juggling multiple activities at once, Erica has become a resource for Canadian women, who often look to her for insight and advice on how to manage their busy lifestyles and still make time for themselves.

Marketing to today's modern woman has become one of Erica's strengths. Advertisers and marketers often use Erica as a resource to connect with mothers.

Erica's career in television spans two decades. She was co-creator, writer and host of Yummy Mummy, a parenting show for the music video generation. Other shows include Baby and You, Popstars: The One, Real Life with Erica Ehm, Power Play, and The Company. Erica’s most recent business venture has been the launch of a new broadband channel that is focused on modern moms.

Ehm's talents extend to songwriting. She has won two Junos, three Country Music Awards and three SOCAN Awards. She co-wrote the theme for the film and series Pippi Longstocking. Love Me Even More was the theme song for the film Some Things That Stay.

Since becoming a mother in 2000, she was contributing editor for What's Up Kids magazine and wrote three stage musicals for the family market for soft seaters across North America.

She is the author of the book She Should Talk: Conversations with Exceptional Women about Life, Dreams and Success and the children’s book, The Mischievous Mom at the Art Gallery. Encouraging women and young people to follow their dreams is the re-occurring theme for many of Erica’s projects.

Erica sits on the advisory board for SickKids Foundation and is involved with Worldvision.

Her son Joshua, little sister Jessie and husband Terry are the reason Erica is a Yummy Mummy. More information on Erica Ehm can be found at: www.speakers.ca/ehm_erica.html.

Why I Posed Topless -- For Free!

I'm not in the habit of doing nude photo shoots. Especially at "my age." When my mompreneur friend Karyn Climans, helmet safety advocate invited me to take it all off in support of Mothers Against Naked Riding, I agreed. I'm not an exhibitionist, especially as my once fit body is beginning to sag like an old fence. But, the underlying messages are so important I sucked it up and took it off.
