Crowe BGK is no stranger to the Kanata Research Park since it opened its first Ontario location in 2005 – quickly becoming a gem in the west end of Ottawa.
Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Delegate and make time for yourself. During my first year after moving into my commercial space, I eventually burned out. Now, I say no a lot more and yes to the right opportunities so that I can have as balanced a life as possible.
First job: Music teacher when I was 14. My first student was 45!
Advice I’d give the younger me: Your most important relationship is with yourself. Practise more self-love.
Favourite pastimes: Hanging out with my husband, friends and three puppies and watching live music with a cold beer.
Favourite song: That is a VERY tough one. I am Light by India.Arie or In Da Club by 50 Cent.
Favourite Ottawa sports team: Ottawa Redblacks
