In 1996, Tom & I purchased Tradebank Hamilton, the first franchise in Canada, and I have been a broker ever since. We did it all, we had to! It was just us – administration, marketing, TRADEflashes and much more, and all before the internet was as slick as it is now! As a TRADEbroker I find it very gratifying to save companies money and raise their bottom line by helping owners leverage unused capacity to obtain much needed goods and services. I particularly enjoy learning about our client’s businesses and products they sell and love the interaction I have with each, as I strive to fill their requests.
I am a nurse by profession, formally trained, graduating in June of 1972. I worked up until our first child was born and again in a part-time capacity, when our youngest child started school. Immediately prior to Tradebank, I worked with Tom at our surveying business for 6 years. I have been with Tradebank either as a franchisee or employee since 1996.
My priority outside of work, is my family, especially my 12 grandchildren. Just spending time with them brings me much joy. I am very involved in our church in several capacities including Youth Ministry Co-ordinator and Awana Cubbies Director. Serving in this way affords me ample opportunity to be around more children on a regular basis. A few of my favourite pastimes are jigsaw puzzles, crocheting & knitting, and camping with Tom.
