About the owners

We’re Paul and Val, a husband and wife team that moved to Gibsons from Edmonton in 2014 in an attempt to escape the cold and snow of the prairies. We love it here!

Val worked as a pharmacy technician for 13 years at the University of Alberta hospital. She loves the outdoors and being active – If you ever want to go for a walk, hike, swim, kayak adventure or outdoor outing of some kind, just ask: she’ll likely say yes!

Paul’s been a marketer since 2002. He spent eight years as a creative writer in Edmonton’s crowded radio market where he conceived and created advertising campaigns for hundreds of local businesses. In 2010, he left broadcasting to help many of those same clients grow their social media presence.

In the fall of 2014, we moved to Gibsons and upon our arrival, launched a hyperlocal news website which ultimately became LiveOnTheSunshineCoast.ca. We LOVE telling stories and working with local businesses and have been telling Sunshine Coast stories in some way or form since we arrived in BC.
