About Me
Many people have seen Kirsty at St.Albert Chamber of Commerce meetings or at her old stomping grounds; Bodacious Baths. Kirsty owned Bodacious for 7 years. It was during this time that she discovered that as much as she enjoyed designing bathrooms, kitchens and interiors and finding renovation solutions for people, she actually really liked bookkeeping and doing HR as well! 
 
When she left Bodacious Baths, she moved on with an I.T. consulting company as their HR & Corporate Services Manager. It was here that she discovered her passion; helping small business's grow through assisting them with their everyday administrative, bookkeeping and HR tasks. Now, having been a business owner for over 10 years and a senior manager in a small I.T. company for 3 years she knows what the unique needs of small business are and strives to fill the voids that these small businesses can have. 
 
Bliss came about as a direct result of her networking with other business owners and discovering that they too were struggling with finding someone trustworthy and on a contract basis to do administrative, HR and bookkeeping tasks. Kirsty filed this idea away, and a few years later Bliss was created. Bliss is your administrative, HR, executive assistance and bookkeeping team right in your back pocket. Let Bliss get to know your company so they can be a part of YOUR team too.
