TEIM Project One: 2015-2018

LED Lighting Savings Program for commercial buildings in Ontario. TEIM was a very, very small fish, in a large pond. I had a lighting supplier and outsourced a team of electricians. I completed the government rebate applications, making TEIM a one-stop-shop for an LED lighting upgrade. Chapter closed. There used to be a website with more information but it has now changed to this one! Let’s just say if you need LED bulbs for a commercial building, I can get you a good deal…

fall 2016

Started consulting work for xocial.

winter 2014

Quit full time customer service job to work on TEIM full time and waitress in the evenings to pay the bills.

In the beginning, ‘working on TEIM’ was A LOT of research and cold calls and emails being ignored…and Facebook posts. I had no idea what I was doing..


Incorporated TEIM Empowered Inc. right after graduating even though I had no distinct product or service – I just knew I wanted to save the world and have my own company.

fall 2008 – summer 2016


Turtle Jacks wings with New York butter sauce are the best chicken wings you will ever taste. And the Tin Cup burger, from the Tin Cup, is the best hamburger you will ever taste. Waitressing was a huge part of my life and evolving work ethic, and I am grateful for the amazing friendships that I made along the way.

xocial is an online gaming platform that conditions, measures and inspires acts of impact. We do this through targeted campaigns and challenges. Challenges are designed with “XP” points based on the time and effort it takes to complete (pick up trash 5XP vs. give blood 60XP). These XP points then filter up to an individual or organizations “XO” score. XO = social impact score.

What does xocial do better than any other app? Impact Gamification.
