Why Calgary?

Calgary is a place of opportunity and connections; this why I continue to ingrain myself, my family and my business here. My dad, Dermot Baldwin, started the Calgary Drop-in Centre. My husband's family came here in 1907 and they ran cattle down 8th Avenue for the 1st Calgary Stampede. My children, grandchildren and extended family continue to make Calgary their home. We are rooted in Calgary for generations to come.
