With 38 years in Fort McMurray, I call Fort McMurray my home. Moving from Ontario with my family in 1981 to where we once thought the roads were paved with gold. There was a one to 20 ratio with woman to men. So as a teenager, I did not have a lot of freedom. I kept myself busy by playing a lot of sports, while holding down 3 jobs. It wasn’t soon after I graduated, I landed a job at Syncrude. Every Fort Mac kid’s dream was to get a job at Syncrude. After getting a taste of job security, before I knew it I was married and buying a house (oh wait, it was the other way around)he he. After my first child was 8mths old, I had a hard time working and leaving my child with someone else and missing out on all his first, I decided to call it quits. I started my own cleaning company and found I loved working for myself. After 10 years, I sold the company and dabbled in social work and marketing for a local restaurant. When I was asked to tour potential employees for a few of the oils companies, I soon found myself assisting with company housing. I also managed 7 apartment buildings for a distant owner. Before I knew it, I was licensed and then took it once step further and purchased my own brokerage. I may have also done that backyards but more of a reason to speed up the process to obtain the brokers license. Since that day, almost 12 years ago, I have since added condo management and a expanded wealth of property management knowledge. As I continue to grow with a spectacular team of individuals, I also continue to learn and grow. Key is surrounding yourself with qualified people and although I made some poor choices in the beginning, I gained the confidence to know who was qualified to be with me on this crazy ride of property management. What’s in the future? More growth and like minded people who enjoy working for a business that is so versatile. I like to call it “One Stop Shopping”.
Both my children were born and raised in Fort McMurray. I now get to experience the joy of being a grandmother to two beautiful busy boys. I can be having the most horrible day and they bring those two precious boys around and soon I forget all my stress. They even have their own office at “The Bowers Group” There are also two little critters that will greet you at the front doors of the office. If you come in to the office in a bad mood, your mood will change after meeting Charlie and Macie. Come out to visit us and check out all the services we have to offer.
I was born and raised in beautiful Fort McMurray. This place has always been my home and I plan to stay here and watch my 2 beautiful children grow up and build their families here. Fun fact: both my kids and myself had the same delivery doctor.
Outside of work I am a hockey mom, cheer-leading mom, ringette mom and baseball mom. My kids keep me busy and young. I am the mom in the bleachers with a starbucks and a messy bun.
At work I love being around people and helping reach common goals. Some of my duties include ensuring payment received for condo fees, working to ensure all encumbrances are clear before the sale of the condo, and the collections side of the business. This typically involves sending bill reminders and statements to clients, posting financial transaction to an accounting system and making bank deposits. I am happy to be part of the Fort Management TEAM.

Myself and my family moved from Stephenville, NL to Fort McMurray 11 years ago. I started working with the company in September 2017. I can honestly say I love my job, I guess it is kind of hard not to when you work with such a amazing group of women. Outside of work I am normally spending time with my family or playing darts.

When not working I can usually be found on the ice, playing or coaching hockey and ringette, or roaming the trails with my dogs. After coming on board with Fort Management in 2016 as an assistant, I worked my way to a Condo Management position and currently manage eight complexes and enjoy working hands on with the various Boards to meet their needs.
