Meet Sally Baker
Sally was a child when her family moved to Fort St. John and it has been "home" every since. "I love Fort St. John because of the wonderful people, the small town pace that seems not as rushed and hectic as life in a bigger city, and the beautiful scenery we have in the area," said Sally, "I am happy to be raising my son here." Sally points out the residents pull together to help each other out. "There are so many kind hearts and such generosity that it makes you really proud to be a part of this community," said Sally. There are lots of scenic spots in and around the city. Sally enjoys the lookout and says it is a great place to stop and enjoy the scenery, go for a walk or have a picnic. "I used to go there during lightning storms for a spectacular view," she said.
Sally owns Thoughtful Expressions Gift Baskets and loves her work. "I am proud of how much I have grown my business since 2007," said Sally. Being a home based business, Sally found it it was especially difficult to make her presence known and worked hard at promoting her service and products. She worked markets and events and branched into e-commerce in 2009 which allowed her to expand her product line to offer a large variety of styles and price ranges. Sally now successfully sells to customers in Fort St. John area as well as Canada wide. She enjoys doing business in Fort St. John and appreciates the positive word of mouth recommendations from her happy returning customers.
As an entrepreneur, Sally has found the perfect fit. "I am so happy to be doing something that I love and when I’m working it doesn’t feel like work at all," said Sally. She also enjoys music and has recently picked back up her guitar. She loves camping, backyard fires, and spending time with her friends and family.
