Our Candidate

Meet Jennifer McAndrew


Jennifer McAndrew

Jennifer is the proud mom of two children, Chase and Bryn, ages 12 and 9. Jennifer and Scott, her husband, are current residents of Carp but have deep roots in Kanata, having grown up in Beaverbrook and Glen Cairn respectively.

Jennifer is passionate about contributing to the strong and vibrant community fabric that makes Kanata-Carleton a wonderful place to raise her children. Having completed her BA from Carleton in 2003, she completed her MBA in 2007. Jennifer and Scott founded their business in 2007 and have since grown from their garage in Morgan’s Grant, to a warehouse in Kanata North, and their newest space on Carp Rd. Growing this business and employing 16 people in various capacities, combined with community volunteerism, Jen is a proven leader. In 2015 she was the recipient of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce/Ottawa Business Journal 40 Under 40 award. 

In her spare time, Jennifer is on faculty at the West Carleton School of Performing Arts, as well as the chair of the Canadian Advisory Council for Meeting Professionals International and a board member with the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre.



Supporting Families, Neighbours, and our Broader Community!

I’ve been so fortunate to grow up in Kanata. Our family’s deep roots are intertwined in almost every arena, sports field and dance studio in the area. I am proud to have lived my entire life in this community and delighted to now be raising our two children here, while operating our family business in West Carleton (Carp). In choosing to run for office, the example I hope to be setting for my children and their friends is to do things that are bigger than you and do everything you can to inspire those around you with your positivity.
