How many years have you been a CanSPEP Member?

I joined CANSPEP in January 2019 and I couldn’t be happier!  So many likeminded individuals that understand the highs and lows of being a business owner.

What do you look forward to achieving in your portfolio this year?

It’s a big learning year for me and that’s really exciting!  It’s a wonderful opportunity for me to expand my “tribe”, learn more about what CANSPEP offers our industry and our members.  I would love to see more Western Canadian members join us so we expand our connections!  Planner/Owners (Eventpreneurs) are a special group of people

Why did you get into the event management entrepreneurial space?  

Temporary insanity?  Actually I had a wonderful mentor who gave me a chance in the industry with no experience. She taught me everything I know about the events world and being a female business woman.  She inspired me to take the bull by the horns and buy the company.  She and her husband guided me through the process and helped with my initial success.
