Tell us about yourself. Where do you live, what you do and the journey that has led you to where you are today?
My name is Missy, I live in Ontario, Canada. I am the proud owner and founder of Tipsy Treats located at Bramalea City Centre. Among other small business ventures, Tipsy Treats is by far my most rewarding endeavour. My parents were extremely creative and raised myself and my two younger brothers to understand the importance of trying new things and to also be diligent, and it was instilled in all of us to grow up one day to be a boss.
One of the things I’ve always admired was my mom and her passion for baking. What started off as fun in the kitchen, infusing liquor into treats and getting creative with decorating…led to the established storefront that many people of the city are familiar with today. It took a lot of questionable motives and plenty of sweat and tears to get to where we are now, but I am so grateful and appreciative of the individuals who supported me and were patient and believed in me through the process.
What's your favourite thing to do in the city?
I’m a foodie so one of my favourite thing to do in the city is to try the latest trendy spots for some delicious grub with some good company. Another thing I really enjoy doing is Escape rooms, its super fun and gets everyone involved in an unusual situation, working together using clues and solving puzzles before the time runs out.

What is your definition of an ambitious female?
A woman; who despite failure, hardship and defeat, keeps her head up and pushes through all the uncomfortable situations. Being ambitious requires great effort and aggressive determination to make room for perseverance.
And finally, what are your Goals/ plans for 2019?
To expand and franchise Tipsy Treats within Ontario, put a couple stamps in our passports, and buy a new home for my beautiful growing family. Also, to continue to inspire other women to pursue their dreams.
