For as long as I can remember, I dreamed big and was always inventing new businesses. As a young kid, I was the one making business cards from construction paper and crayons. Business is my jam.
Really, business brainstorming is my jam.
OK, the real truth is, business brainstorming (with wine) is my jam.
I’m the oldest of four girls from a close East Coast Canadian family and my sister Brigid (the second eldest) does quite the job of capturing what it was like to grow up with me in her blog: How I got Addicted to Shopping at the Age of Six.
My one true goal is to share my experience, expertise and energy with like-minded entrepreneurs – to collaborate and help them create custom events that grow their passions, businesses and bank accounts.
From designing my 10th birthday party theme (a backwards-themed party) where I had hand-written invitations in the mirror and convinced my parents that eating the cake first was just part of the theme, (one of my 10-year-old self’s most brilliant hoodwinks), designing event experiences has always been in my blood. Since starting in 1998 in Halifax, my one goal was to achieve as diverse a portfolio as possible. Effectively, the more I do, the more I can do for my clients and their audience… At the heart everything I do, lies my passion for elevating each event to their highest potential.
