Carmyn & Peter

Carmyn and Peter are the root system for this family foundation. Together, they are not only leaders in the community, they are also leaders in their everyday life. 


Family and legacy are the two true passions that fuel their innovative efforts. They know that in order to be able to help others, they must be the best people they can be, in all areas of life. As role models for their children and peers, they ensure their overall well-being is a top priority. This means embracing nature, prioritizing health, wellness and fitness and taking time for self-care, including their mental health. 

Through the Upside Down Tree, Carmyn, Peter and their family have collectively focused their passions into six areas of support, creating the “Tree of Support” which focuses on causes and areas in need that are important to their family.
