Kelly

Kelly has held many different roles within both the private and not-for-profit sectors of business throughout her career. Kelly has had the privilege to work in a variety of industries, including the high-tech sector, high finance, manufacturing and the Graphic Arts industry, and most recently in Healthcare.

Her diverse experience lends a unique perspective and approach to her work ethics. Kelly’s passion and drive did not allow her to limit her impacts to the various roles she has held throughout her career. Kelly is a Certified Project Manager and graduated her program with high honours. She holds a certificate in Equestrian Coaching as well as a Certificate in Pilates Instruction.

Kelly possesses an ability to develop strong, lifelong relationships with all individuals with whom she interacts. Kelly demonstrates intuitive design capabilities and calls on her skills in creating unique materials. In her past roles, she developed a polished, professional mannerism, with strictest regard to respect for her clients and co-workers.

Kelly repeatedly returns to her passion for the arts and fills her spare time creating unique, one-of-a-kind greeting cards for friends and family. She has also designed custom wedding invitations for clients as a hobby. As well, she creates unique costume jewelry when the mood strikes.

Kelly now turns her passion to reviving a business that would otherwise have left the Town of Carleton Place forever following the retirement of its previous owners, Ron and Lorraine MacDonald.

Brett

Brett spent many years in the print industry here in Ottawa, and brings substantial experience in producing precision and quality into his workmanship. Whether it be in his woodworking hobby or in his passion for drag racing, Brett lives life to the fullest.

His sense of humour and passion for people is reflected in everything he does. His energy and enthusiasm is contagious. Brett currently works in the construction industry and has been working with companies who build high-rise residential buildings, as well as medium-density residences. Brett has a passion and appreciation for quality workmanship and is well respected in the industry by his peers and employers.

Brett’s passion for racing keeps him busy. Attending car shows and seeing pure stock muscle cars race is a passion both Kelly and Brett share. As well, they are often at the Luskville race track testing out the work Brett has completed on his 2013 Challenger RT.

Roscoe

Roscoe is an Olde English Bulldogge bred by Rivertown Bullies in Dunnville, Ontario. He was born December 1, 2014 and is the offspring of Champion Bulldogges (Penny and Dozer). He is very high energy and adores all people, dogs and other animals, but has a special affinity for young children. This little guy has a heart of gold and enjoys every experience Kelly and Brett present to him. He loves swimming in the Mississippi River and will often be found jumping from the rocks at the boat launch in Almonte’s fairgrounds. Roscoe is a Rock Star at every car show he attends with his owners, because he is so affectionate and handsome. We celebrate his presence in our lives every day.  Anyone who knows Bulldogges, knows that they turn your life upside down and turn your heart to molten metal all at the same time.
