Tammy Schmidt - keeping healthy with new ideas

Tammy Schmidt owns a gym in Dawson Creek, and has since 2010. She was going through some changes in her career, and was ready for a new challenge. She especially liked the direction the Gridiron Gym was heading in. 

“Rather than taking the historical route of catering strictly to body building enthusiasts, the gym had a refreshingly comfortable and welcoming feel that any ordinary person wishing to promote their health could feel at home in.  It felt different and exciting.  I could see an opportunity here to put my skills to work and, at the same time, try out new ideas and become an important part of the community.”

On her role models in Dawson Creek: “Dawson Creek has a solid foundation of support and opportunities for a woman to succeed in the business world.  Kathleen Connolly, (Chamber of Commerce), has been a role model and support of mine for many years.   Her passion for helping our community especially during the pandemic has given me the inspiration needed to get through this uncertain time.”

“There is also an incredible group of local businesswomen and entrepreneurs in our town.   This is where most of my support has been found.   Building relationships, working together and being there for each other has allowed me to grow personally on so many levels.   

It’s nice to have someone to collaborate with, who understands your struggles, is there to cheer you on and truly wants to see you and your business thrive.  

I feel blessed to be a part of this community that’s full of powerful, hard working woman who are making their dreams come true in a variety of businesses.”
