Jennifer was born in Montreal but raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia makes the East Coast where she calls home.
With entrepreneurial parents, exposure to commercial and residential real estate at an early age meant that a career in Real Estate was inevitable. Homeownership and investment in real estate have been goals throughout her life and continue to be passions that drive her.
When searching for a brokerage to align herself with, Jennifer looked for a level of professionalism and high standards that matched her processes and a strong sense of community to allow her to give back in her profession as much as she does in her personal life.
Volunteering with Shelter Movers Nova Scotia, a volunteer-powered non-profit organization providing free moving and storage services to people and families fleeing violence and abuse, as a Manager of Volunteer Services, keeps her busy when not spending time with her family.
Real Estate was a natural fit for Jennifer, having worked in corporate leadership and management roles for over a decade in addition to 30 years of authentic relationship-building. Jennifer carries the value of hard work, integrity, and passion in everything she does.
Kaytee Mullins is a young entrepreneur from Cape Breton, who moved to Halifax in 2016 for College but fell in love with the City and now calls it home.
Before starting The Change Room, Kaytee completed programs in American Sign Language and Veterinary Medicine, and although she loved both, neither were the right fit. Having always dreamed of being her own boss and after countless jobs in retail, restaurant, and hospitality industries that left her unhappy, she took the leap, after the business she worked at closed down. With the pandemic just starting, she started on a wild journey, trying to navigate the entrepreneurial space and start a business in a world where businesses were shutting down every day.
Starting The Change Room, not only gave her the freedom to make her own schedule, which allows time to visit her family in Cape Breton (and snuggle with her cat), it also gave her a sense of purpose. Helping the environment, reducing waste, saving people money, and finding really cool pieces, are just some of the reasons running this business is fulfilling for her.
When she’s not thrifting and sourcing colourful clothes, she likes to listen to podcasts, crochet, explore new places, and spend way too long on the phone with her Mom and Niece.
Kaytee hopes that if there’s anybody out there who feels stuck in what they’re doing that they too, find something their passionate about because life is too short to do anything that steals your joy.

Tobi has been in the arts for most of her life. She began as a competitive dancer in jazz, acrobatic arts and ballet and during this time fell in love with performance and choreography and the art of moving bodies around a stage in a way that created a visual story.

When her sister Nikki began crafting novels and later screenplays, she’d indulge in planning out how they’d come to life on the screen. She attended York University as a Dance major and then finished her Fine Arts degree at Dalhousie as a Theatre major and found her way to stage management on a number of productions in the HRM.

She enjoys photography as a hobby and as a sometimes career and crafting stories in a single frame or capturing people in candid moments.

Tobi is the Director of A Walk In The Sun, a short film created through AFCOOP’s Film5 program. She brings a lifetime of love and passion for the arts to all her projects.
