General Manager and Owner
Founder and Managing Director
Greg is the driving force behind the vision for community collaboration at Salt Spring Island Wellness Centre. A lifelong entrepreneur, Greg is personally dedicated to creating mindful communities and projects, so after spine surgery and the birth of his first child, he was called to pursue a more purpose-driven path for his family.
Establishing a permaculture community farm – Aloha Aina Farm – on Salt Spring in 2014 seemed like the perfect start. At the same time, Greg was called to purchase the building that is home to the Wellness Centre and to take on transforming the space into an inclusive and diverse hub to benefit the many local and independent wellness practitioners on the island and help make holistic health accessible to members, visitors and the wider community.
With his extensive management experience, creative energy and strategic foresight, Greg’s approach is to offer the Centre as a shared space for industry leaders and practitioners to collaborate and grow the vision for health and wellness to become synonymous with Salt Spring Island living and tourism.
Greg has an entrepreneurial business and finance/real-estate background with a Bachelor of Commerce degree and a Masters of Business Administration. He spent much of his early career working as a independent commercial mortgage broker in Calgary. Greg has spent time serving Salt Spring on the Board of Beaver Point Hall, the Agricultural Alliance and also served on the 2015 Incorporation Study Committee and the Salt Spring Island Chamber of Commerce Board
