Born and brought up in Sydney, Cape Breton, my extended family is huge, between my father's 5 brothers & one sister the Muise boys were a strong presence in the workforce at the Sydney Steel Plant. My father, Gerry was the business man of his family and was General Manager of RJ Logue Ltd the largest GM store in Atlantic Canada in those years & after owning his own Pontiac dealership in North Sydney he spent 10 years as General Manager of Island Ford ltd. I moved to Halifax in 1968 when my father took over as the GM of A.E Fowles Ltd the city's largest Ford - Mercury dealership and after two years we set up Town Toyota ltd. It was always assumed but never verbalized that I would go to university and join my father in the car business and it came close, I did go to Saint Mary's but by the time I graduated Dad was in the Real Estate world. But that didn't stop me from getting the car & business bug. Before I graduated from SMU I started Nova Bar Supplies Ltd and supplied the growing Bar & Restaurant scene for a couple of years then worked in Hubbard's (N.S.) running a General Store owned by my father and a partner. I've worked for: * NCR as Sales Rep. for Northern Nova Scotia & Cape Breton. * AES Data Systems as Sales Agent - Word Processors * Parker Hannifen - Hydrolic & Pneumatic Controls as Regional Manager just as the offshore oil exploration started in this part of the world. * I've been involved in several other small business in the region as part owner / consultant * I've been an independent Consultant for the past 20 years. I've been told that I have the ability to be open and accepting with my own opinions without being opinionated. I'm a fast learner and enjoy a good meal and a conversation with anyone. I'm also known to introduce myself as a flirt, a tease and a pain in the ass & those who know me well would tell you I all that and a fairly lovable one.
