What is your current career/job?

Owner of a wedding photography business

What inspired you to enter and pursue this field?

Deep desire to be independent, I always wanted to be the one in the boss’s chair.

How did you come to be in this position? Tell us about your journey - how did you get to where you are now, what inspired you to pursue this career?

I always loved photography and quickly became known as the person who was always taking pictures- combined with my desire to be independent and to own my own business, I created my photography business as an assignment for my grade 11 Entrepreneurship class. I kept it going once the semester was over, kept it through 3 years of college, and it has turned into a successful business with 5 associate photographers :)

What advice would you give young women looking to enter your current line of work? OR what was the best advice you have received through your career?

Start the business- you can make it perfect later :)
