Meet Nicole

"There's no greater feeling, than the feeling of joy."

I’ve been blessed to have many moments in my life that have brought me joy, and I’ve come to learn that connecting people with what matters to them, being of service and sharing my gratitude are where many of those moments begin for me.

I’ve worked in a number of industries, where I’ve always done my best to be helpful, nurture meaningful relationships, and to provide impactful services and products. Most recently, I’m fortunate to have fallen into a career over the past decade that has allowed me to experience joy, gratitude and connection, by serving the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation, our regional hospitals and its donors. It has really reinforced what is important to me and how I can make an impact.

Life is supposed to be fun, and for me, I am having so much fun connecting with local and Canadian businesses, to find treasures that I can share with you. I also get to find creative ways to present gifts to your staff, clients, friends or family.

With all my experience, I want to offer my services to those who are busy, or struggle to find just the right thing to say, “I care”. I’m honoured to be part of this journey with you and look forward to seeing how I can best serve you, and those you want to connect or share gratitude with.
