BPW Greater Sudbury has named Charmaine Kennedy the BPW Woman of the Month for her commitment to wellness and community support.
Six years ago, Kennedy decided to embark on a journey of entrepreneurship.
Kennedy founded Tree of Life North Complementary Healing Center where she, alongside a group of practitioners, offers people a variety of complementary, alternative health-care services.
The goal of her business is to encourage people to take charge of their recovery and healing journeys in a way that works best for them.
While Kennedy has been busy in the past six years, evolving her business to suit the needs of her clients, she also regularly volunteers her services to the Maison McCulloch Hospice providing Reiki services for residents, family members, staff and volunteers.
Kennedy has also been a committed community volunteer and has offered and provided her services to many locally-run organizations and causes, including her work with the Elizabeth Fry Society and the Sudbury Sexual Assault Centre.
Her business also contributes regularly to community organizations such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, the Edgar Burton Christmas Food Drive and the Sudbury Women’s Centre.
"Women like Charmaine work hard to create a safe and welcoming environment for people from all walks of life," said Marianne Matichuk, BPW Greater Sudbury president.
The BPW Greater Sudbury Business Awards Gala is coming up June 6 at the Hellenic Centre. This gala focuses on recognizing women with a formal celebration and recognition event. Purchase your tickets at www.bpwgreatersudbury.com.
