Meet Charise Smith
Charise loves the familiar faces in her hometown and feels that the community is an extended family. Neighbours care for one another in Valemount and she says this makes a great environment to raise children. For awhile she did live in a larger centre but found it didn’t fit her needs. “In the city I spent most of my time after work sitting in traffic or waiting in a lineup at the store instead of fishing, berry picking, cooking or gardening with my family and friends.”
In Valemount Charise enjoys a high quality of life. There is a slower pace to life which allows her to have time to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors and experience it with her friends and family. She loves to garden, cook and preserve her garden grown bounties. She also spends time volunteering for local nonprofit organizations that work with children. In the evenings and on the weekends she can often be found as a local DJ for events or community fundraisers.
Charise enjoyed a successful nail career in the city where she was well thought of by peers and sought out by clients. Her skills and her reputation allowed her to pursue new opportunities to own and operate her own businesses in Valemount. She loves being an entrepreneur. “I have established independence and flexible hours that promote a healthy home life for my family as well as financial independence,” she said.
Charise enjoys doing business in Valemount. “The businesses support each other with endearing referrals and people try to shop local to show their support,” she said, “we all look out for each other and want us all to succeed.”
Charise believes that shopping at local small businesses is one of the most important ingredients to encourage investment in the town core, to provide more products and services and to promote future population growth of her community.
