Lighthouse’s Founder, Cathy Goddard has been a Whistler resident since 1988 and clearly believes that a thriving small business environment is the essence of a community’s character. She consistently creates a culture of sharing, educating, connecting and promoting small business in the Sea to Sky Corridor. Her dedication to unite small business entrepreneurs and thought leaders, to share business wisdom, and champion people to reach for your dreams is boundless.
Lighthouse has shown how the power of mentoring benefits the greater community. Cathy has shared this message at Rotary Clubs, Whistler Chamber of Commerce, Capilano University – to name a few. She brought Lighthouse’s mentor model to a network of Whistler’s non-profits and recently, introduced the Community Beacon Award for a local non-profit leader to be a part of Lighthouse’s mentor program at no cost. Finally, she impacts the community through her Board roles with Zero Ceiling Society and Whistler Blackcomb Foundation.
