Cheryl Ozen-Dyer, I was born and raised in and around the Ottawa area. In 1988, I travelled overseas to Zimbabwe as a volunteer for 3 months. Although, it was a very difficult thing to do, I knew in my heart, this experience and opportunity would impact me for the rest of my life. And so it has. I graduated with honours as a Social Service Worker upon my return home. My whole life all I wanted to do was help those in need. I am now a business owner, Business in Motions and am married to my amazing husband, Neil.
In 2014, I took a very bad fall and had suffered a concussion. Today, I am still in recovery and although most of my life has changed, the two constants that have remained the same are; my desire to help others and the love for my husband.
