By Josie Walsh
In the early 80's when Deborah Campbell, attended Queen's University, Chemical Engineering program, she aspired to graduating and pursuing a fulfilling career in the corporate world, instead her path became more of that of an accidental entrepreneur. She graduated in 1981, just in time for the then government's National Energy Program to crush the job market for chemical engineers. Along with a mid-80's recession and more job slowdowns, Deborah didn't plan on it but she founded Quality & Compliance Services Inc. of Mississauga, Ontario, a consulting firm that today has 40 full-time employees and produces technical writing services on quality-manufacturing practices for food and drug products.

Her perseverance at achieving this goal at Dan Coles Impact Zone at the Atrium Mall at such a young age is amazing.
