Anthropology lead me to become an entrepreneur

During my degree at UBC Okanagan, I became fascinated about how and why people use natural resources. I took every environmental anthropology course I could, and through my professor, I met the City of Kelowna's WaterSmart coordinator. After working for the City for four years helping Okanagan residents conserve water, waste and reduce transportation, I started my own company helping businesses do the same. Seven years later GreenStep Solutions Inc. is a successful sustainability consulting firm
