A lifelong resident of the Kitchener area, I’ve owned and operated a local corporate apparel and marketing company for
the past 25 years; and founded Trachten-Quelle ten years ago. I’m a long-time member and director of the
, one of five German cultural clubs in this area.
In my downtime you’ll find me treasure-hunting at local antique markets and auctions. I also love to travel. Last but
definitely not least, I’m the devoted Dad (though these days, mostly chauffeur on-call) to my teenaged twin boys.
I’m Neil’s spouse, and the official “Jill of all Trades” at Trachten-Quelle – tending the online shop, helping at our
local trunk shows and travelling with Neil to Salzburg each Spring to “shop ‘til we drop” at the amazing
trade show. (I know…it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!)
I share Neil’s interest in antiques and travel; and also enjoy many creative pursuits when time permits. My greatest
joy, though, comes from spending time with my adorable grandkids!
