Tell us about yourself

I have always wanted to own a business that promoted a healthy lifestyle, playing hockey my whole life, I knew that recovery was huge. However, after losing my mother and becoming a mother 3 years ago, I also realized how beneficial taking time for yourself is - to reflect and relax in your daily life. Combining both recovery and relaxation, Re Sauna was born, a 40-minute invigorating deep-tissue sweat sauna session. A visit to Rē Sauna will leave you feeling fully refreshed, rejuvenated, and renewed.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Opening up during the pandemic, it has been a wild ride but worth it.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

One of the hardest things you'll have to face as a business owner is dealing with the unknowns.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Begin with a detailed plan.
  2. Surround yourself with the right people.
  3. Find a healthy work-life balance.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

If you have a dream, chase it because a dream won't chase you back.
