In her dual roles as a human resources professional and entrepreneur, Ms. Zwiers focuses on building partnerships, strategic planning and implementation of practical solutions to reach desired objectives.

Ms. Zwiers has supervised up to 27 employees in the HR department.
Ms. Zwiers also works with her husband Mike manging Garden Source Greenhouses, a wholesale floral greenhouse operation which has been in business for 12 years.

The pair has substantially grown their customer base through referrals and a reputation for outstanding quality and customer service. Maintaining a balance in both her capacities is key for Ms. Zwiers, who is committed to entrepreneurship, ongoing personal and professional development and achieving results.
Ms. Zwiers received a Master of Industrial Relations from the University of Toronto in 1994 and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the same institution two years prior.
