About Our Founder
Janet Lewis loves the online world!
Her first encounter with cyberspace began in the eLearning industry where she started out designing online learning programs at ISOPOIA, a small Canadian start-up company, which was eventually acquired by Sun Microsystems. Moving up to the global platform, Janet was able to work on an award winning team with some amazing clients. Eventually she parted ways with Sun Microsystems to venture out on her own as an eLearning consultant. Janet has had the opportunity to work with many of Canada's top companies to assist them in developing and implementing their eLearning strategy - helping move them out of the past and towards their future. With over 10 years of experience implementing learning solutions at start-up companies and large organizations in a variety of industries Janet felt she had made her mark within that sector and that it was time to move on.
Janet started “Flirt Accessories”, a small jewellery company that allowed her to be creative and produce items that she could actually “touch and feel” at the end of the day. After attending various tradeshows that were sometimes great and sometime not so great, Janet was determined to create an “online boutique” that would showcase Canadian artists in an effort to get their product into the online marketplace. Orangefish was officially launched in the fall of 2006 and has continued to grow each year.
Although Orangefish’s original focus was on products from independent Canadian artists and we still carry many items from Canadian companies the fish is now exploring global waters as well, discovering the best products from France, Israel, the United States and beyond.
An entrepreneur at heart and committed life-long learner, Janet is always willing to try something new. She believes that every individual can achieve their dreams as long as they are willing to work hard, be positive, stay focused, take risks, and continue to learn. These five driving principles have allowed Janet to find balance and success in both her professional and personal lives. She brings passion, drive, sparkle and zest to whatever she is doing. Janet loves a great challenge and actually thrives when presented with complex situations or issues to overcome. She is a builder and an innovator – someone to keep an eye on now and in the future because you never know where her path is going to take her. If you have the opportunity to meet Janet, you will be “hooked”. She will reel you in by doing nothing more than being genuinely Janet through and through.
