“Our move has worked out in our favour in many ways." - AJ Frey.
Calgary, Vancouver, Kelowna, Winnipeg, Brooks and Houston B.C., are some of the places they’ve experienced in the past, but it’s the inviting community atmosphere in Medicine Hat that urged them to find a character home and plant their family.
AJ owns a web design and SEO business and recently created a website for the new Medicine Hat downtown business Moose and Squirrel Artisan Village. When they visited to celebrate the couple’s grand opening, they scheduled a viewing for a house and signed the lease a few days later.
In one month, they moved themselves, their two children, two large dogs and a cat to the city.
The wildlife is what the family looks forward to, the deer that walk along the streets and in the parks and the birds that happily sing.
While AJ runs his business, Nicole works as an operations manager, and the two also run the non-for-profit Animal Food Bank, where they fundraise to support homeless and low-income households with food for their animals.
The two were nervous about putting their youngest son in daycare, but once they began their moving process, they met their neighbours who have a daycare home.
