Powerful Women Magazine - Waterloo Wellington Edition
We have recently been invited to contribute an article to the "Powerful Women Magazine
", which is distributed in the Waterloo-Wellington region.
The Winter 2011 issue focused on "International Women"! Seeing that the owner of Premier Focus, Kerstin Krämer, immigrated from Germany to Canada in the 90's, this particular issue seemed to be a natural fit for us. We were excited to contribute!
