Spotlight

Origin story: Carscallen was a manager at Ark Envirotek in 2008, about to have a baby. Eight months pregnant and about to go on maternity leave, she thought about starting her own company. “That’s when an opportunity presented itself that I could not pass up,” says Carscallen. “When I was starting the company, I knew I was having a girl and I was thinking about all the strong, capable women in my family. My grandmother’s name was Arletta and it’s my middle name; I wanted to honour that tradition by naming my company after one of the strongest women I know.” Carscallen has continued the tradition by hiring other strong women (and men).
