Brenda Van Dusen
After 25 years away from Brockville, I returned to start a companionship based service for seniors. In 2007, I started “B” Cause I Care. In addition, because I love the products, I’m also an Independent Scentsy Consultant. As the Membership Chair my responsibilities include promoting recruitment and retention of our BWB Members. As well, I provide the Communications Chair and Treasurer with pertinent member information. Each month you will find me at the Membership table greeting you and your guests.
I am a Financial Planner, Investment Retirement Planner with RBC in Brockville. I will be celebrating 30 years with RBC in August 2020. My husband, Rob and I, with our children Mitchell and Mara live in Brockville and love to support local. I have been involved with Brockville Women in Business since January 2018 and have been on the executive since June 2018. I am responsible for Logistics. I work closely with Brockville Country Club by planning the meals, along with ensuring we have enough sponsors each month to round out the great experience we have each month.
I am a Certified Software Quality Engineer, working remotely, with a financial services company in Toronto. I worked in this capacity for American Express and CIBC in the past. I have several other businesses that I do on a part time basis, once of which you hear me speak of during our meeting, ACN and its Xoom Energy Product. I have been involved with the Brockville Women in Business since 2010 and am currently Treasurer for the Group. I work closely with the Executive team to be sure they know what funds we have and where they are spent so that we provide the best events to our members at a reasonable cost.
My name is Amy Jacques and my role as the communications executive includes designing and sending out the monthly newsletter, managing our social media accounts and taking photos during the luncheons. I have been a member for 2 years and immediately jumped on to the executive committee to fill an empty roll. It’s been a fantastic learning experience
I am a distributor for SweetLegs Clothing Inc, a brand that designs fashion leggings, shirts and accessories. I have had my business, SweetLegs Brockville with Amy almost 4 years
A little about me coming soon.
