Who We Are / The Team


Centaine Hlushak,
Community Leader

Centaine has been part of the Be Local team since August of 2014, when she began writing for the Be Local Awards. Having just graduated from the Journalism program at SAIT, the job was a marriage of Centaine’s passion for writing and interest in locally-owned businesses in Calgary. She believes that every person has a story, and that the phenomenal work of Be Local businesses should be brought to the forefront. Centaine took over as Community Leader in spring of 2018.
