Nancy is a well-recognized young professional in the business world; not just in Outaouais, but all over Canada. In December 2005, she decided to take the plunge into the business world by purchasing a disaster recovery company. Her first challenge was to get the company back on its feet and to combine her family life with this new pace. In 2007, having met with great success on this significant undertaking, which was soon praised by the managers of other affiliates, Nancy purchased the chain to which her company belonged. She became the sole owner, president, and C.E.O. of this network, serving all of Quebec with 18 affiliates, from Outaouais to Shawinigan. In 2016, she acquired the Steamatic Canada chain, which has 35 franchises in Canada. Nancy is also involved in various associations and causes related to the insurance field and to other areas and serves on several committees. She holds a degree from the Elite program of the Beauce Business School and is the recipient of several business awards. Thanks to her business skills, leadership, and ambition, during these years she has become a woman who is greatly appreciated, respected, and influential in the business world and the insurance industry.
Josée has a great deal of experience in the insurance industry. She started in the field in 1992 as a receptionist for BEA (Bureau d’Expertise des Assureurs).

She participated in the installation of the first Xactimate system in the industry. In 2004, she returned to BEA and obtained her disaster expert permit from the AMF. BEA became CGI Experts en sinistres and she participated in setting up ISO 9001 certification. In 2007, still with CGI, Josée moved to Montreal to take a position in business development. Finally, in 2008, she moved back into the disaster recovery field, this time with Nancy Raymond, who had just acquired her chain. Josée held several positions directing management operations and also heading the Quebec chain. Following the acquisition of Steamatic Canada, she is now Managing Director of the Canadian chain and the entire network benefits from her expertise, her management skills, and her knowledge of the processes and procedures in disaster management.
