AKA: Market Curator & Community Facilitator
BAWSE \'baus\n: a person who exudes confidence, hustles, relentlessly, reaches goals, gets hurt efficiently, and smiles genuinely because she has fought through it all and made it out the outside!
Kathy and her hubby Richard are the Heart and Soul behind our Markets. We would be missing out greatly if not for this Bad A** Bawse and all she does to make this market the most incredible Market experience in all of the Okanagan. We are so grateful for all you and Richard do. If you see these two at the market make sure to stop to say Hello!
Katharina Van Zant
Vivacious Community Builder
Of Buzz &Community Connections
A vivacious person is lively and spirited. Some people are just naturally fun to be around; they sparkle, they animate any group they're part of, they're full of life. That, in fact, is the root meaning of the word: it's from Latin vivere "to live." It has more of a sense of playfulness than lively or animated. Even the most sedentary slob can feel revitalized in the presence of a vivacious soul.
Katharina Keays has been a member of our market team for a couple of years now. Most of you know her as Kat. Her Youthful and Vivacious outlook has injected new life into our growing market. She has been in charge of our new website and our application process. Plus with her background in Tourism, and Culinary Arts, she is to go to contact for liquor/ Food Vendors at our markets. If you have any Liquor Vendor questions she is your gal.
