Care has infiltrated her life with the Kitchener-Waterloo music scene since 2006. After launching The Rock Show on 100.3 CKMS in 2007, Care went on to found Indie Rock Invasion Show Entertainment with local musician and fellow broadcaster, Todd Donald. The pair set their sights on celebrating, exposing and supporting independent artists, bands and musicians.
In 2008, after the successful launch of I.R.I.S. Entertainment, Care would continue broadcasting the Indie Rock Invasion Show on 88.3 CJIQ until 2012 and hosting live shows in the region at various venues (over 300 shows in total!) In the interim, she also opened the I.R.I.S. Special Events Dj Service, and began hosting I On Music featured on Rogers TV. Care also set her sights on charity work, and founded the TABU Music Festival in support of society-labelled taboo topics, and the Mariah Series; a celebration of Women and Music in support of families touched by suicide. After the demise of Echo Weekly, (Care’s first print employer), Care would incorporate I.R.I.S. Entertainment and launch Velvet Rope Magazine, and its newest editions Aggression Magazine and Whiskey Corral Magazine.
I.R.I.S. Entertainment and Velvet Rope Magazine officially closed after years of serving the Waterloo Region in 2014.
