This year, Okanagan Edge and the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce have partnered to showcase some of the Okanagan’s most exciting entrepreneurs, through the Top 40 Under 40 program.

This week we recognize Lauren Meads, the executive director of the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of BC.

Lauren Meads has always been passionate about animals, but became fascinated with animal behaviour and conservation during her university studies.

Meads started volunteering with the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of BC when she was working on a breeding program for the Northern Spotted Owl.

In 2015 Meads became the field manager for all of the release sites across the province, and this year was named the executive director of the Burrowing Owl Society of BC.

Along with managing breeding activities, Meads works with other volunteers, organizations and local schools.

“This is definitely not your typical job, that you would think has a place in the entrepreneurial world, but it is,” Meads says. “Even with a cute owl by my side I need to convince others of conservation through presentations, fundraising, grant writing and media.”

Having some cash on hand should spare you from having to worry about setting up a bank account for the first couple of days – just make sure you have somewhere safe to keep it.

At the start, the system could only take credit card-related complaints, but now it has been expanded to include a variety of financial products including car loans, bank accounts, mortgages and student loans. More categories are on the way and the "Tell Your Story" feature remains a more free-form alternative for sharing all kinds of consumer experiences.

Pettitte, 41, threw a season-high 110 pitches and made only one mistake of consequence, a badly placed breaking pitch that Colby Rasmus crushed for a solo homer into the second deck in right field with one out in the fourth inning.

    Could I have a statement, please? https://nguoiviet.jp/how-long-to-take-bactrim-for-sinus-infection-q8o2 bactrim f 800mg “These are wild assumptions,” he states flatly. “Firstly, I never wanted to see any production of Streetcar after I saw Elia Kazan’s movie many years ago, because I thought that was absolute perfection and those characters should never be played by anyone else again. And I had no interest in Madoff's wife. What happened was, my own wife came home one day and told me a story of a friend of hers, who knew a woman who was very wealthy – private jets, boats, lavish parties – and it all collapsed on her after 10-12 years, with the government taking her houses and jewels and money, and she was traumatised and broken by it. I thought it was a tragic story, so I went to work on it.”
