Vice President

Marilyn is a dynamic woman from Toronto who has over 30 years of business and fashion experience. She also is producer and host of a radio show "From a Woman's Perspective" on Zoomer Radio. Her passion and experience gave Marilyn an insight into the need of a one stop compressed centre to educate and make goods and services easily available for seniors, people with challenges and those interested in accessibility. This led her to the concept of T.A.C - Total Access Centre. “ In the space of just 3000 square feet at 200 Spadina Ave ( 2nd Floor) TAC has made it possible for people to understand all their options and make informed decisions with no regrets.” It is Marilyn's intention to keep the Total Access Centre a showcase offering innovations and displaying useful items not easily found in the market place. Clients are made aware of all their options in advance of making their decisions and as a result can do so confidently. Total Access Centre includes Marilyn's " Pop in Store". It is a shopping space for "Zoomer" women so they can incorporate the current fashion essentials into their seasonal update and look their personal best effortlessly and economically. Marilyn's mantra "Age is just a Number" is demonstrated here every day. Universal design, accessibility , and a "Forever Home" that is safe , beautiful and welcoming to all are concepts Marilyn and her team share with their clients at her unique Total Access Centre. Everyone at T.A.C has a passion to achieve a barrier free, age friendly society. Therefore, the team includes those who provide all types of accessibility products as well as the capacity to design and built environments that are stylish as well as functional. Marilyn and her team are here for all who wish to stay engaged in life and make all aspects of it the best it can be. Visit the Total Access Centre to see the current incarnation. It is always evolving and growing just like Marilyn!!
