Deanna Fitzmaurice, the one who started it all. Deanna has a fierce personal style and serious passion for fashion.
She devours books. You'll often find her with her nose in crime fiction or the latest Isabelle Allende novel. She has a severe chocolate addiction for which she is not going to get help, as it goes so well with Pinot Noir. Her love for travel has taken her to many destinations – the favourites so far being Australia, Turkey and Machu Picchu.
The most exhilarating 60 seconds of her life was when she blasted down the 1500 metre Olympic Bobsled run at 122 km an hour. "It was worth the whiplash to experience 5G Force and have the fastest run of the day!"
Don't let the fancy boots fool you! Deanna spent many years knee deep in chicken poop. Here are a few less well-known facts about this fabulous fashionista:
She's a northern Alberta farm girl (whaaaaat?!)
A former high school English teacher
Confirmed shopaholic since the age of 14
Mother of two gorgeous girls
Nana, or "BaNana" to four beautiful grand babies
"Having a personal connection with my amazing Virtu clients and reps, and searching out funky fashions keeps me so fulfilled!"
"When Karen tries on outfits she loves at Virtu we hear..."Bow chick a bow bow." and we know she is adding a new piece to one of her many closets!"
Scottish by birth, but Canadian by choice, Karen came to Virtu after seven years at Toni Plus – seven great years filled with exceptional clients and filling her closet with beautiful finds! She is an absolute clothing and accessory maven. We adore her wee Scottish accent and her crazy sense of humour!
Besides adding to her wardrobe, Karen loves to travel! She lived in Geneva for two years working as a nanny and later worked in Greece for six months as a local bartender, Her fav spots – Spain, Italy, Israel, Turkey, Dominican Republic and Portugal....We can just see her scouring out all of the best boutiques!
One of the craziest things she ever did was backpack through Europe and stay in a cave in Crete – the inn was full :)
Cooking and gardening are total passions, especially cooking things grown in her garden.
One thing left on her bucket list is going to a Super Bowl even if her team, the San Francisco 49ers, are not playing.
