Karen Muir has a real passion for people and uses her networking talents to connect friends and associates. Years of contract work has provided a variety of experiences and many business connections within Southern Ontario.
Karen met former Franchise Owner Cori Porter at the Brantford Women’s Networking Group in 2016 and immediately made plans to get together and find out more about BarterPay. Karen liked the concept so much she came to the realization that it was a fit for her! Through further conversations, she learned of plans for future growth in the Brant, Oxford and Norfolk Counties and meeting with both Stephen and Cori lead to Karen joining our team!
Karen’s experience and knowledge of local businesses date back to 2001 working with The Manufacturers Association serving Haldimand – Norfolk, coordinating Career Fairs for Service Canada under her own Event Management company for several years and continued with Workforce Development (formerly Grand Erie Training and Adjustment Board) as Passport To Prosperity Coordinator, acting as liaison between schools and employers. She was also involved with Venture Norfolk, assisting business owners in the area.
Currently Karen feeds her passion for travel by arranging just the right vacation for clients as a part-time home based Travel Consultant and she sometimes takes time out for her own vacation!
