I had the pleasure of interviewing Courtney Riddell, owner of Guelph Moms and Co. which provides family friendly programs providing both Moms and their little ones with resources to enhance both physical and social development.If you are a parent and you live in Guelph, you have probably seen Courtney teaching kids during the weekdays or performing in her role as a princess on the weekends (where do I sign up for THAT job?). I have gotten to know Courtney in the last year and you can really see her passion and dedication to her family and to her job. Read on to learn a bit more about Courtney!
