Chief Minion (CEO)
I’ve always been the odd one. The strange thinker. The troublemaker. The friend who doesn’t quite fit the group. And I was, am still, ok with that. It brought me here.
My background is predominantly in health care with 10 years as a medical office manager and two years as an MOA program instructor.
My connection to the Autism Community is as a parent of a son with Aspergers, three years volunteering with the Burlington Autism Job Club and three years with CASDA (Canadian Autism Spectrum Disorder Alliance).
I believe that being weird is a positive thing. I love Marvel movies, musicals and singing when it best embarrasses my kids. I’m an avid baker, reader, gardener and collector of action figures.
Chief Ausome (CIO)

She has supported individuals with autism as a coach and consultant for over 30 years.
Chief Swissy (CTO)
I started my career in IT and while studying electronic engineering at DeVry during the day, I worked midnights programming placement machines that placed components on circuit boards.
From there, I moved into call centre and desktop support where I started developing website using MS Access, Cold Fusion, and Classic ASP (Active Server Pages). My first major project was replacing binders full of call centre routing information with a web app.
In 1999 I fell victim to the dot-com bubble when the company I was working for went under and I started my own web design and development company.
Shortly after that, I became 1 of the 3 first members of a startup that built a platform for selling ringtones and images. There, I created midi ringtones, wallpaper images, and built a backend licensing and content tracking tool with classic ASP.
