Miss Loosie is a professional clown who uses the power of humour to comfort, educate, entertain and heal.

Clowning around Calgary for 25 years, Miss Loosie is an accomplished speaker, humour therapist, entertainer, face painter, balloon artist, storyteller and Therapeutic Clown. Humour is a healing and coping tool for life, says Oberg. Whether its using humour in the face of illness, an accident, or death it allows the human race a way to cope. There are four areas of clowning: Entertainer clown, educational clown, clown ministry, and Miss Loosie’s favorite category . . . caring clown. I have had so many great experiences because of the way that people open up to Miss Loosie, says Oberg. To have someone open their arms to you is an invitation to love; and its not just kids-- its adults to. Humour is her passion. Miss Loosie can also be found spreading cheer at schools, special events, corporate functions, picnics, weddings, business promotions and family reunions throughout Alberta. Despite a busy schedule of volunteering and entertaining, Miss Loosie can also be found teaching. She teaches other people interested in clowning through various workshops such as Clown Fun and Clowns Canada.
