OFFERING CREATIVE AND BUSINESS LEADERSHIP SINCE 2009
For over 10 years as principal designer, Bethany has brought creativity and skills to residential and commercial projects across Western Canada. Inspired by the belief that authentic design is a reflection of self, Bethany passionately encourages her clients and associates to design their built environment, and their lifestyles, around their own unique personalities. In 2014 she expanded her small business into a location-independent cloud model and successfully implemented virtual studio management.
In order to realize new goals for both her family life and professional development, Bethany has transitioned out of entrepreneurship in 2018. Bethany now actively contributes to the growth and success of other small and mid-size businesses, as well as individual professionals. Key successes include business development strategies for specialty product sales, efficiency and quality improvements for high-end services proposals, communication audits and brand consolidations, and personal branding for corporate professionals, creatives, and entrepreneurs.
Bethany's mission is to enable meaningful and authentic contributions in creativity and business through actionable leadership and genuine relationship. Values of openness, creativity, leadership and compassion motivate Bethany in all aspects of life. In her personal time, Bethany is committed to motherhood, relationships, and a combination of ever-evolving creative and intellectual interests. With clients, colleagues and friends across Western Canada, Bethany calls both Vancouver Island and Calgary home.
