Unlocking Secrets for Women Resources Inc.
(USFW) was founded by Candace Newton Chaput in November 2004 as a new style of radio airing on CFUN in Vancouver, Canada. Her many prestigious sponsors such as Johnson and Johnson Women’s Health Division, Proctor and Gamble and many other recognizable corporations saw the value in educating women and their families through her natural leadership style.
As an adult educator Candace’s classrooms were often opportunities to share ideas, stories and find solutions to the challenges facing her students in their natural circumstances of life. Statistically most of them were women returning back into the work force after raising children. They needed encouragement, education, information, products and other and desperately needed resources to assist them in their new pursuits. USFW was born out of this passion to educate and provide answers to common challenges facing everyday women and their families.
Candace’s skills have accumulated into consulting in her areas of expertise in Health Care, Media, Adult Education and Operational Management for the past 10 years. She is a inspiring and humorous speaker, talk show host, radio and television producer and professional Master of Ceremonies.
She has earned the respect of her extensive list of thousands of contacts in business, political and entertainment arenas for her generous networking, strategic alliance and business collaboration on behalf of her many clients. She is currently the producer and host of WSA Radio heard in over 126 countries around the world throughhttp://www.womenspeakersassociation.com She is in collaboration and development of several entertainment and education projects involving recognizable local and international celebrities.

As a member at large with the Michael Cuccione Foundation, she actively supports cancer research to help find cures and treatments benefiting both children and adults. Candace’s first hand experience with this disease started with the loss of her own father when she was just 23 years old and the family experience of her young granddaughter being diagnosed with Leukemia at just 20 months old. She was honored to be invited sit on the 2009/2010- Advisory Committee of the Women’s Leadership Circle of The Vancouver Board of Trade.
As a television producer she was strategically responsible for the concept of interviewing celebrity biographies that were reflected on the show that she both produced and guest booked. The Daily Weekend Edition was an hour-long talk show on the Vision Network in Canada where she developed and implemented a celebrity interview segment for the show which eventually became a new show called “Unscripted”. She was successful in producing Season One of “UNSCRIPTED”, a celebrity biography that launched in prime time all across Canada on VisionTV; and was syndicated across Europe and North America. In addition to providing celebrity guests to be interviewed, she provided publicity and promotion for the show and has established herself in Hollywood as a credible networker and connector in her own right. She assisted in the coordination of their regular production of celebrity interviews at the beautiful Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Despite an early life marked by physical and emotional abuse, turmoil, estrangements and as a child of divorce; Candace has devoted her life to the empowerment, education and well being of women and their families. “I grew a natural compassion for women’s issues by watching my mother and other women face challenges with self-esteem, violence and emotional pain.” She is passionate to see women stand strong with dignity, independence and respect for themselves and others.
