I fell in love with painting early on, inspired by both my parents, and by the artist Beatrix Potter, and the Impressionists, Renoir and Monet. Diagnosed with a serious illness at a young age, I would pass long days at the hospital by painting and learning calligraphy from my father.
My family and I spent a large part of my childhood traveling through Europe, where I was inspired by all the rich culture which surrounded me. Later in my teens I taught “ Summer Art”, and am now working with special needs children for the WRDSB, using art as a form of therapy. Connect with Margie here…
I spent the first half of my career in treasury operations; learning the business side but also participating on the team that transformed IT from a gigantic IBM mainframe to desktop computing. Just over 20 years ago I moved into technology, I’ve witnessed the growth and expansion of security teams, the advancement of AI everywhere, hybrid work forces and the push into cloud solutions. I’ve helped customers get comfortable with using the internet, managed the tech groups responsible for ensuring security and stability, and been part owner of a software company.

At the time, I thought my life was normal. As an adult, it was far from normal. Being born slightly more than one pound, at the age of 2, going into an orphanage. Watching my parents struggle financially. My parents beliefs were extremely old fashioned. I had to break out of that poverty mentality and their beliefs. I had to create the me I believed in.
