I have been passionately serving the business-to-business community in Kelowna for over 17 years, predominantly in the fields of sales and marketing. My first experience as a digital marketer was for Columbus Networks in 2006. I was a digital ad sales specialist who sold online advertising to school districts and educational facilities across North America.
Columbus Networks also sent me to Austin Texas to open their U.S. headquarters and to hire, train and establish their American team. I have since spent the last 15 years in the fields of sales, publishing, digital marketing and business development, with an emphasis on real estate marketing.
My earliest experience in real estate marketing was in 2008, when I was the National Sales & Marketing manager for Homes & Land Magazine. I proudly grew that publication from 63 to 128 pages while simultaneously obtaining my real estate license.
In 2011, I launched my own publication, The Kelowna Shopping Guide, which I then successfully franchised and sold in 2013. Shortly thereafter, I acquired a Digital Signage Network now called Mission TV missiontv.ca.
In 2014 I founded OMG Web Development & Design Inc., a boutique digital marketing agency which has brought to market and grown several national brands. OMG’s clients include GCI, a Mergers and Acquisitions company out of Toronto, Newlook Capital, a private equity fund in Burlington, Visland Media, a television production company in Kelowna, Vitatek Solutions, a national disinfectant E-Commerce company, and many more.
I also helped found the Kelowna chapter of Valhalla Angels. An Angel Investment Club in Kelowna that was expanding from Alberta. I was the General Manager of the local chapter and their National Sales & Marketing Manager for several years. During this time, I became passionate about the private equity space, start-ups and Angel Investing.
In 2016, I acquired The Downtown Business Center, a failing office rental business in downtown Kelowna which I have since grown to over 3 different office centers.
I continue to own and operate The Downtown Business Center and OMG Web Development & Design, both of which are independently managed, so that I can focus on growing my passion in Commercial Real Estate with a specialty in Leasing.
With my diverse background in entrepreneurship, private equity, business development, leasing and real estate marketing. I feel uniquely qualified to help local business owners and investors find the right property to meet their business goals as well as to help current owners to sell or lease their properties for a maximum return.
