​Life take us on many journeys, but always connected.




My name is Catherine I'm a graduate from Loyalist College in ACCT/ACC3 Business Admin and Accounting Advanced Diploma in the late 70's and in the early 80's, I also graduated a Legal Admin program at Ontario Business College and in early 00's graduating head of the class in Health & Sciences in Hamilton. Being a military spouse for over 20 years, traveled and lived  here in Cold Lake on 2 occasions, along with Comox BC, Shearwater NS, Trenton and North Bay ON and Hamilton. Where I have worked in Accounting,  Managerial positions, Research and Development and Public Relations and Nursing.  Once my X-spouse retired from the military in 2002 we settled in Southern Ontario,  where I partnered in the purchase of a Graphic Integrated Sales Corporation, where I had been the CEO.  In 2007 I returned to my home town and owned and operated a Salon in which later I sold and  partnered with my sister Arlene in her Accounting Firm.  Where I had gained a wealth of knowledge in the transportation industry as Arlene, after owning an accounting firm in Picton On.,  decided to take a break from seeing numbers  to seeing wide open spaces and became a Class AZ driver, while using her experience in accounting, gained a wealth of knowledge into the transportation industry in taxes, benefits and regulations. Working along side Arlene I gained her knowledge working with clients in the transportation industry.  The company went on to outgrow 2 different locations and served clients coast to coast in transportation, and clients from every industry- restaurants, farming, construction etc.

In 2015 after remarrying in 2010 my husband and I decided to relocate to the Cold Lake area, as this is where all but one of my children resides with their families. Where I decided to carry on with our company in grand Cold Lake, opening the doors of T.A.W. in 2016. 

Arlene still being an integral part but resides back in Ontario.
