Amanda McKenna

Hampton, New Brunswick

Enthusiastic, high spirited and imaginative; I see life as full of possibilities. I am a dreamer and a doer and can usually find a compelling reason for what I want. I am an avid DIY’er and house flipper/ renovator. I have a creative streak and don’t mind getting my hands dirty.

I love small businesses and people who are passionate about their business and ideas. My passion for business and my grandmothers gift of baking skills lead me to start a dessert business in Fredericton. What started as a side business on kijiji blossomed into a storefront and lead to an award winning dessert business.

A little over a year after opening the storefront (3years in business) my husband and I found out that we were expecting our second child and decided it was time to move “home” to the Kingston Peninsula after living in Fredericton for 11 years.

So we sold the business, packed up the family and made the move. My husband, Patrick, and I are now proud parents to two beautiful daughters Ellie and Callie. Living in Kingston, we are now able to share with them our childhood experiences of living in the country, while surrounded by family and childhood friends.

While my time in Fredericton gave me plenty; a bachelors degree, my husband, two daughters, lifelong friends, 3 homes, numerous apartments (I like to move), and more work and life experiences than I care to share, Kingston was and always will be home to me.

An introvert turned extrovert (yes it is possible), I am a sociable and outgoing person that prides herself on being genuine and open. I’m always up for chatting business, DIY projects, real estate, recipes and just about anything else so feel free to connect with me on twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook.
