Tell us about yourself and family

We came to Kelowna, searching for mountains! I came from Montreal with my snowboard and my husband from Australia with his bike. We met at the local Hostel eight years ago, fell in love and now have a 2 year-old daughter with a beautiful personality!

My snowboard is at the back of the closet (for now) but being a mom and business owner is rewarding and definitely worth the sacrifice!

Describe your business/product or service

Finding fun and meaningful children’s gifts can be overwhelming – I help parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles by offering quality gifts that promote reading and creative play.

Running a socially responsible business is important to me. I support charities and non-profits as well as create and organize community events such as Okanagan Child ID Day and the Family Day Challenge.

How long have you been in business?

Since 2011. I started Story is Yours when my daughter was 2 months-old – she has been my little partner since the beginning!

Why did you start the business?

I fell in love with Personalized Books! I was looking to start a business and I remembered Personalized Books – where a child’s name, friends and hometown are printed in a story.

To me, having a business where I could get kids excited about reading was amazing! I continue to expand my product lines to offer a variety of gifts that inspire children’s imaginations.

Tell us why all parents need to visit your store or purchase your product/service

Parents need to know that babies have fun with wiggling fingers and out-of-tune songs, children love boxes and playing with dirt!

But, for those special occasions when you want to give a gift – I invite parents to visit to learn more. Check the about-us story, blog posts and customer testimonials.
