Kristi is from Calgary, where she married the love of her life. As their family grew, they decided to move to a smaller town from Vancouver. While on vacation, she discovered Vernon didn't have a 30 Minute Hit—they took the leap and made her dream come true to own it. Kristi needed a dance partner and found Aaron, an advisor at Sun Life Financial.
Aaron, from Saskatchewan, fell in love with the Rockies, which lead him to the Okanagan. Now this dad of two keeps busy with his passion for the outdoors, including SilverStar in the winter and enjoying the lakes in the summer while exposing his children to the Okanagan lifestyle.
WHY DWTVS—Kristi and Aaron want to give back to a community that is so generous. Kristi's grandmother's final days were in Calgary Hospice and Aaron is familiar with Hospice House—making it a no-brainer to participate, even though Aaron doesn't know how to dance and might be a few inches shorter than Kristi in heels!
