My decision to start this business came after a loss of a family member. I played a lead role in helping with the distribution of the personal property for the estate, then helped a family member transition into a retirement home. There were so many small details to contend with and the surviving widow was overwhelmed to say the least. It was then that I started to think about others who may not have someone able to help take care of this type of transition so I began to think about starting up my own company. I love helping others and to know that I make a difference in a family or person's life.
I strongly believe in giving back to your community. I have been volunteering for more than 30 years for one charity or another. I have spent 10 years on "Hike for Hospice" committee raising funds for Hospice Wellington, spent 7 years volunteering with the Rotary Club of Guelph Wellington, sitting on the Board of Directors and eventually the role of President. I volunteered on the e "Black Tie Bingo" committee raising funds for much needed equipment for the Guelph General Hospital for over 11 years. Presently I volunteer for "ElderDog Canada", helping seniors walk their dogs so they are able to keep their pet with them.
Prior to starting SWOT Services I was the Senior Manager, Operations for 19 years at the Guelph Chamber of Commerce. I have had the privilege of meeting and working with so many extraordinary companies in Guelph and surrounding area. I bring these experts and connections with me to my new company. I have organized and managed two office moves throughout my career on time and on budget. I bring these organizational skills to my clients assisting with whatever is needed to accomplish the task at hand.
No job is too big or too small. Making any transition easier for you.
