Why did you choose WOW 1 DAY PAINTING?

I chose WOW 1 DAY PAINTING because I enjoy working with people and getting my hands dirty. After doing a renovation on my house I found that I loved painting! I had dreamed of starting my own business in the trades but I didn't want to go it alone. With the WOW 1 DAY PAINTING brand, systems, and support I felt like it was a natural fit for me.

What was your background prior to joining WOW 1 DAY PAINTING?

I was actually an employee of O2E Brands, the parent company of WOW 1 DAY PAINTING, working in Field Operations. While working at the corporate head office I kept an eye on WOW 1 DAY PAINTING. After getting to know the Franchise Partners who were already in the system and seeing what they were doing, I came to really admire what the brand was building.

What are you looking forward to most about being a WOW 1 DAY PAINTING business owner?

Creating opportunities for people to jump start their career! There is so much room for people who want to grow with WOW 1 DAY PAINTING. Being able to offer someone a start as a painter and provide them with training, development and promotion opportunities is extremely exciting to me.

What are your passions outside of work?

I'm an avid fisherman, so if I'm not at work, I try as often as I can to get out on the water. The Vedder River, Stave, Dewdney, and Harrison are some of my favorite places.

How are you involved with your community?

I've been an on-call Firefighter with the Mission Fire Rescue Service since 2006 and am extremely proud of the service we provide to our community.

Do you have any role models or key motivators in your life?

Definitely my parents. They both have worked so hard to provide amazing opportunities for me, and have taught me what it means to work hard and earn things for yourself.

What makes Fraser Valley unique?

It's a growing area for young families. With real estate prices being what they are in Vancouver, a lot of young families are choosing the Fraser Valley as a more affordable place to live and buy a home. I've lived here my whole life and am amazed at how fast it's growing!

Fun facts about you, or anything else you'd like to share?

I was born and raised in Mission and have lived in the Fraser Valley my whole life. I truly believe we live in the best place on earth!
