An Exclusive Interview: Dr. ANN KAPLAN

ARTICLE BY JANICE RONAN




Chaarmz had the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Ann Kaplan, an incredibly savvy, award-winning business woman. We went in knowing that Dr. Ann Kaplan is a definite force to reckon with – the CEO and President of iFinance Inc., a FINTECH company she built from the ground up to a company that has processed over $2 Billion in loans, Ann is also an accomplished author (seven books). A fan-favourite on The Real Housewives of Toronto, a sought-after speaker and media personality, a devoted wife, and mother and guardian of a total of eight children - *Pauses to Breathe.* For good measure, let’s mention that she’s also a certified wedding officiant (a Reverend), a committed philanthropist and was an avid bodybuilder and runner at the competitive level. Undeniably, in this instance – life is far more interesting than fiction and there’s much more to come!

Is there anything this woman can’t do? The short answer is a confident, no!

(Ann doesn’t like the word ‘no’ but in this case, I think she will let me get away with the reference).

A bright, tranquil Sunday set the scene in Toronto as the Chaarmz team arrived at the picturesque Bridal Path home of Dr. Ann Kaplan and her plastic surgeon (former pro-hockey player) husband, Stephen Mulholland. We were greeted by a lovely member of the Mulholland staff and her beautiful two-year-old daughter, also named, Ann. It was then that we were given a glimpse at the character of the woman we were about to meet, lovingly told that little Ann was named after Kaplan.To me, that speaks volumes about her true character and spirit. Honestly, meeting the original did not disappoint.

Elegance, harmony and creativity filled the space – there was a definitive sense that happiness lives there. In true fashionista form, Ann greeted us looking as though she had just stepped off the runway - clad in a black ZOFF designer day gown with voluminous tulle trim and white sky-high Stella McCartney platform sneakers. Beautiful, radiating the type of confidence and authenticity that originates from deep within.



Ann treated us to a delicious, healthy snack comprised of homemade jam, and crackers she made from scratch (using left-over rice), served with heart-shaped vegan cheese made of cashews (she made this too). “I’m a big believer in health and nutrition. Understanding the benefits of the food you consume and being in the best shape you can possibly be in (not any particular shape or size) but the ideal shape for you, whatever you deem that to be.” Ann revealed (her book “Not Your Average Cook Book” is in bookstores this spring).



Up close and personal, we were captivated by her charm, poise and quick-witted mind. Chaarmz was privy to a first-hand look at her new clothing line, AnnKM- featuring collaborations with extremely talented and visionary Canadian designers; at the helm of AnnKMare herself, Evan Biddell, Christopher Paunil and Michael Zoffraneri.

Her creative confidence, positive energy, joie de vivre and ability to see the humour in everyday life is refreshing and infectious. Coming to the realisation that, in Ann’s words, “Through creativity, bright lights can emerge from a dark year.”
