Ha, I honestly don’t remember, but probably to help others, just like my dad. He was an elementary school teacher at the time.

What are your long term goals?
To have Green Leaf develop a reputation of ‘The’ go to company for startups and small businesses, not only for our services, but as a wealth of resources, networks, and contacts for foundational success.
What inspires/motivates you?
I love having conversations with business owners about their purpose… their ‘why’… their passion. It always sparks my enthusiasm and desire to fuel their success.
Favourite memory on the job so far?
We’ve been so very lucky to have such wonderful interns work with us. The most touching moment for me was when one particular intern chose to stay to work with us for 2 extra months because of the experience, skills she was exposed to, and work culture. We truly are a second family.
