Christine Ginther

Owner

I am blessed with a wonderful husband and 4 children. I grew up in the Camrose area and currently reside on a farm east of Camrose where we raise sheep. With an education in the field of rehabilitation, I worked with people with disabilities for over 15 years before starting this business. Serving my community has always been a priority through my church, school council, playschool executive, and a variety of other organizations. My journey with my aging grandmother and raising my daughter with a disability have been my inspiration for this business. I have a passion for serving others and being able to help others do the same.
