In January Angeline opened Occucheck Clinic Inc., a business with two main facets. Occucheck provides in one location a wide variety of occupational health services, including qualitative respiratory mask fit testing, TB skin testing, pulmonary function testing, nursing medicals, vaccinations, vision screening and drug and alcohol testing. The second part of the business is service focused where she does the recruiting and staffing of temporary nurses and dental assistants for professional clients.
Angeline worked as a nurse in an occupational health setting for almost 15 years, and through this she gained an insider's perspective and knowledge of how the industry functions. It is also how she identified a gap in the market and realized the need for a one-stop shop for occupational health testing and services.
Since starting her business Angeline has been extremely busy and her business is taking off! She received a Vancity microloan to cover the initial start up costs and now the loan from CML will help her cover cash flow while she gets established. Due to marital breakdown in 2011 Angeline has a poor credit rating but she has been working to improve it. Her payment records are very good for the periods before and after the divorce.
Angeline is a very driven, passionate and intelligent person with a high level of business acumen and professionalism. As a single mother she is also motivated to be a good role model for her child. We approved her loan and are confident she is poised for success.
