I was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada. I am the eldest sibling of a big, beautiful family that includes my two brothers, two sisters, and two loving parents. In 2015 my family grew when I married my husband, then again, when we welcomed our beautiful boy, Bennett, into the world.
I worked in the hospitality industry for over decade. I began this career when I moved to Toronto and grew to love it. After spending a number of years in Toronto my heart took me back home to Dartmouth where I continued on the same path.
After Bennett was born I knew I wanted to spend as much time as I could being with him so that’s when I decided to head out into the Entrepreneur world. Researching and putting together bennett’s boxes really opened my eyes to the importance of supporting small businesses in our Country. Knowing it’s an individual or family trying to live their dreams in the big business world is amazing and something I was now a part of. Realizing the joy it brings to your heart when someone purchases your product and supports your idea is something to be cherished.
“There is such a joy in giving. It lifts one’s spirits – not only for you, but for the person who is on the receiving end, as well. Why wouldn’t I want to create something that would be responsible for that.”
“The moment that changed me forever was the moment my first child was born. I was happy, filled with hope, and thought, ‘Now I understand the whole point of work, of life, of love.”
