Julie Card has been a full-time resident of Collingwood since the summer of 2004 and prior to that has enjoyed the area as a weekend visitor her entire life. Born and raised in Toronto, Julie began her career working as a legal secretary and moved over to Firstcom Marketing in 1995 where she would gain many years of experience working on customer centric marketing campaigns. Her area of focus was Contact Centre Management. Concurrently, Julie was also a partner in a 15,000 sq. ft. sports bar in Scarborough, Ontario for 5 years and has experience in the food and beverage industry. Julie launched the multi-award winning website www.mycollingwood.ca in December of 2005 together with her husband and business partner Dan Plouffe. The website was inspired by both a love for the area and recognizing the opportunity for an affordable on-line marketing solution that would connect local business owners with residents, weekenders and visitors alike. Julie is an Authorized Local Expert for Constant Contact and is also a certified CSIA Ski Instructor. She currently is a volunteer board member for the Blue Mountain Special Olympics Alpine Ski Team. Passionate about photography. Julie and her team cover between 300-400 local area events for www.mycollingwood.ca every year and she looks forward to catching your image at 6 Hours of Gibraltar in 2015.
