About Kelly G
I grew up in a small town on the outskirts of Sudbury, ON. Even at an early age, I stood out in my style and interests, so after high school I looked for adventure in a bigger city. I moved to Ottawa to study Small Business Management and, ever since, I’ve dreamed of being an entrepreneur. I eventually moved to Montreal after falling in love with the music scene and finding my community.
While living in Ottawa and Montreal, I built a career in retail management for some of the most inspiring companies. All the while, deepening my passion for leading an engaged team, providing exceptional customer service, and managing a successful business.
Surrounded by so many independent businesses, I started to take an interest in what made certain brands, restaurants and stores memorable. My values shifted to supporting local and making conscious buying decisions. Self-development and healthy living became part of my everyday routine. People were inspired by my elevated lifestyle habits, and I realized there was an opportunity to help others.
During a month-long isolation due to covid-19, I reflected on how much I missed my family and Sudbury. After 20 years of living away, I decided to make the move back home. I knew it was finally time to realize my dream of being an entrepreneur.
Dep de Vie – a lifestyle department store - was born.
