My name is Gifty and I’m the founder of Baller Mom Canada. I’m a mom of 2 boys living in Toronto, Canada. Being a parent to a dedicated athlete takes a whole village.

I know from firsthand how hectic any season can be, whether you have one child or more. From staying on top of schedules, updates, tournaments, practices, schools and home life. Sometimes we’re not sure if our children have the best support in helping them reach their potential. My dedication to sports stems from being a former
high school cross country and track & field athlete.

I founded Baller Mom Canada in 2018 to build a community that provides positive encouragements to Basketball parents and their athletes in all stages of their sports journey.

In 2018, I combined my education, experience and dedication to sports and founded Baller Mom Canada. My educational background includes a degree in B.A. Sociology from York University, a diploma in Business Administration – Marketing from Sir Sanford Fleming College and other professional accreditations including Business Leadership Essential designation from McKinsey & Company.

Additionally, I have over 10yrs of experience as an entrepreneur, I am a recipient of several
community champion awards which includes 1oyrs+ of advocating for parents and students as a
