Q. What brought you to Garage Guru?
A. I saw a piece about Monkey Bar Storage in Entrepreneur magazine. I thought: “What a great idea for a business, there are SOOOOO many garages in Metro Vancouver – and sooooo many people with just a LOT of STUFF to store!” Organizing a space is a passion of mine. So we started Garage Guru as a very small business, and we’ve expanded over the years to include other lines, to the point where now we cover all types of garage storage needs throughout the Metro Vancouver region.

Q. What’s your role at Garage Guru?
A. We’re not too concerned about titles here – you can call me Guru-in-Chief. Or you can just call me Christine!

Q. What do you do when not at Garage Guru?
A. I love to hike the Mt. Seymour trails, go for bike-rides, travel the world and hang out by the ocean with Tom at our house in Deep Cove.
