Big Red Catskiing Rossland BC Canada

Paula Gaul

I'm one of the owners of Big Red Cats, is the CAO, and the only one game enough to fiddle with the back end of the website, so most of the posts are by me.
Born in Toronto, raised in London ON, graduate of Royal Military College (RRMC), with an MBA from Ivey (UWO). After 7 years in the army as a logistics Captain, I did a year in tech sales in Ottawa, then my MBA in London ON, before sailing the south Pacific (Auckland-Tahiti and back to Tonga), and then moving to Sydney to work as a strategy consulting with BCG.
Then got pregnant and married, and we decided to stop working for the man and strike out and do our own thing. Kieren dreamed up Big Red Cats, I couldn't poke any holes in the idea, so off we went.
We now live in Rossland with our 3 daughters, and spend a few months back in Australia every few years.
I like beautiful beaches, cool cocktails, and classy cappuccino.
