Carol returned to Edmonton from Texas in 2005 with her BComm in hand, ready to start a business. Canadian Houses, a virtual tour and photography business was launched in Edmonton in 2006. Shortly thereafter, Carol returned back to the corporate world and worked for the makers of COLD-fX as their Corporate Programs Manager for 3 years before having her first daughter. It was decided nearly immediately after the birth of Madelyn that it was time to focus on all things entrepreneurial, full time. In June 2010, Canadian Houses was sold to focus on two new businesses; Mommy Connections Inc. (offering mom to be, mom & baby and mom & tot classes across Canada) & Bossy Mama Inc. (now known as WECAN) Carol has a passion for connecting women, whether it be new moms or entrepreneurial women.
When Carol isn’t busy connecting women, whether new moms or business owners, she loves honing in on her inner Martha. Cooking, baking, decorating and scrapbooking are among her favourite things and Pinterest has become somewhat of an addiction. She is also a closet step aerobics fanatic and squeezes in as many classes as she can each week. Carol works to travel and is uber-frugal to ensure there is always a trip around the corner. Some of her frugal habits include reusing ziplocks, frequenting the bottle depot, coupon clipping, dress shirt laundering and (pour) sock mending. She is a sorority girl with a passion for cars and all things fast and does what she does for her precious children Madelyn (4) and Carter (7 months) and hopes to teach them the value of hard work and volunteerism. Her favourite Edmonton charities include Basically Babies and the Terra Centre for Pregnant & Parenting Teens and she sits on the Board of the Junior League of Edmonton.
