Occupation: Co-founder and CFO at Tangible Words, an inbound marketing and sales growth agency.

“You can always make more money, but you can’t make more time.”

Vicky co-founded Tangible Words in 2009 with her wife, Alysha, and they had a vision for creating a company that would not only allow them to live a life of their own design, but one that would inspire their team to live and work in the same way.

Tangible Words supports flexible work hours, location-independent lifestyles, and a company culture that encourages balance between work and personal passions.

Her motivation for creating Tangible Words was the desire to create a life that focused on living first and business second; personifying the philosophy her grandfather shared with her, “You can always make more money, but you can’t make more time”.

After years of travel, discovery, and exploration together, Vicky and Alysha bought a lakehouse in small-town Ontario and ran their company from their home. From there, they created and grew their family while simultaneously building their business. Vicky now lives in Ottawa with her wife and business partner, Alysha, and they have two boys.
