It doesn’t get much more authentic than Dr. Brittany McKinley. She is refreshingly real. As a practicing dentist and owner of Mint & Ivory Dentistry, she takes great care in making her clients feel comfortable. She has even enlisted the help of two therapy dogs to sit with patients when they are in her chair. Aside from working extremely hard to reach her dream as a dentist, she has experienced many trials. Just a couple of years ago, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer and endured traumatic treatments. She was then left with limited choices on completely her dream of having a third choice. She discusses her journey to finding a surrogate very close to home (or should we say work) and the emotions that have come with that journey. We are so excited for you to get to know the authentic, hard working, and fierce, Dr. Brittany McKinley.

National Infertility Awareness Week begins this Sunday, April 21st. Infertility is something that will always be a part of mine and Becca’s lives. In this episode, we chat about things we have overcome and perspective we have about certain aspects of infertility. Helping others who are in the thick of it, is something that is near and dear to us. Recently, Becca and I, along with two other ladies, started a local support group that continues to grow each month. Each year I dedicate the upcoming week to bring awareness through my jewelry business, Jackie Blue Handmade, with informative posts. And another very exciting event is a fundraiser that I host through my business for a couple going through infertility and pursuing treatments or adoption. With each purchase of this year’s awareness piece, you can nominate one couple. The pieces will go live this Sunday, April 21st at On May 21st, we will hold a drawing to name the winner of the money raised. Becca and I also started another fundraiser last year with our Broad of the Year event, where we gifted the remaining sponsorship money to a couple going through infertility. We were able to gift $2000. We truly want to help others because of how we were both blessed on our journeys. We hope this episode and the mission we are on, will bring awareness to those who haven’t been effected and support to those who are. 
To shop this year’s fundraiser, visit beginning this Sunday April 21st to purchase the 2024 Infertility Awareness pieces and nominate a couple.

There is no argument, that on this episode, we have our coolest Broad yet. Shaina Tinnell, known to many as DJ SHAY, grew up right outside of Owensboro in Maceo, KY. Basketball and softball were the center of her life as a teenager. After graduating from Daviess County High School, she studied Psychology at the University of Louisville. From international destinations to countless music festivals, traveling has always been a big part of Shaina’s life. When a friend saw social media posts of her at festivals, he suggested she look into DJing. One opportunity led to another and now DJ SHAY is one of the most popular DJs in our area. Shaina is also our first Broad who is a member of the LGBTQ community. Hear how Shaina has navigated her identity in a small town and as a public figure and about how another overbooked DJ helped get her unexpected career started.
