When she’s not at the shop practically giving tires away at rock bottom prices, our putting smiles on customers faces, she is planning the next big community event where she has supported the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre for over 5 years.
She has taken over the family owned business on her own and still has the best prices, ultimate service, loyal customers, and of course the largest used parts and accessories selection (open to the public) available in Canada.
When she is not riding on her own favourite bike on curvy country roads, she is spending time with her son Ryder.
