Nancy O’Halloran is the people-oriented heart behind BraveHeart, the largest, independent First Aid training and equipment provider in Nova Scotia. O’Halloran was inspired to start the instructional platform after noting a lack of first aid training opportunities both for the general public and community businesses. BraveHeart was named after O’Halloran’s vision to offer training courses that instill in participants the necessary skills and confidence to move past their fears and step into their bravest selves. O’Halloran is a self-motivator, who has held several public talks in the community with the aim of equipping others to feel safe in a first aid moment. In 2020, O’Halloran was selected as a finalist for the RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards.
