I grew up in the Vancouver, BC area, and moved to Kelowna, BC two years ago.
I have created a brand called Empowering Choices which allows people to discover where they have options in any area of life. This includes health and wellness, and my business in which I partner with a company that makes top-of-the-line nutritional supplements, and world-renowned weight management and personal care products.
I am detail-oriented and enjoy balancing books as well as proofreading documents. I look forward to working with this team to create fantastic workshops for young entrepreneurs, supporting them to be successful in business and in their lives!
I was born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark but my passion for the outdoors and in particular alpine skiing instigated my decision to move to Vancouver. I have happily raised my children here while pursuing a psychology degree and licensing in the financial services industry. I currently run the insurance department for a boutique investment firm.
