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 their dreams is boundless. Cathy has shared the message of mentorship 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 partnered with Squamish Savings/Vancity to offer Community Beacon Awards to 2 leaders of a non-profit organization and the indigenous community to be a part of this season’s mentor program at no cost. Lighthouse is a former finalist for this award and with the support (and votes) of the business community we can win!
