Bobbi was born into an entrepreneurial family and spent her childhood and youth working in her father’s grocery store in Northwest BC.
After graduation, she attended SFU and received her Bachelor of Arts Degree and later became a probation officer. After a decade, and the birth of her daughter, she decided that she wanted a more fulfilling life and left her career.
Just prior to leaving her role, Bobbi had started her first business, a home-based photography studio. She quickly grew her venture, and proceeded to move her studio to a beautiful downtown location in Prince George.
In 2017, Bobbi started her second business, when her family purchased a campground. They have quickly built it into a destination locals and travelers from around the world have fallen in love with.
Early into her first business, Bobbi had recognized the need to find resources to support her in her business success and growth. In 2009, Bobbi had learned about Women’s Enterprise Centre and applied to participate in a Peer Mentoring group. It was in this group, that she realized the importance of surrounding herself with other successful business women and that asking for help is necessary.
Within a few years, Bobbi wanted to give back what she had received, and became a volunteer mentor. She is passionate about supporting other women in business and excited to see the shifts happen during their mentorship.
Bobbi has since joined the WEC Regional Outreach team as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence to assist in delivering services in the North, sharing the resources available and helping women business owners access advisory services.
Bobbi was born and raised in Northern BC and has lived and worked in various communities through the North. She is excited to be a part of the WEC team because she recognizes the challenges that business owners often face in accessing resources and further developing their skills.
In her spare time, Bobbi is a volunteer Fire Fighter, First Responder and Training Officer at her local fire hall in her rural community of Salmon Valley, just outside of Prince George. Family and community are part of her core values.
