Shanay Smith

Executive Assistant

Shanay joined SkyX early in 2018 as Executive Assistant to CEO Didi Horn. Since then, she’s also been supporting the company as Head of HR as well as Office Manager. A graduate of Carleton University with a BA in Business Law, Shanay has also obtained her BBA.

Outside of work, Shanay dedicates her time to the eradication of homelessness in Toronto through a non-incorporated non-profit she founded in January of 2016. In addition, she also volunteers with a Christian-based education company committed to inspiring the youth of today as their photographer and web developer/designer.

Somehow, amidst all this, she’s also a single mother of a beautiful little boy. Shanay says her deepest fulfillment comes from one-on-one time with her son. She dreams big: For herself and her child.

On those rare moments when she’s not busy with SkyX, volunteering, or parenting, you’ll find her unwinding at a sports bar with an ice-cold beer and a pound or two of wings. She grew up in a family of football players and race horse owners, and attempts to revisit these guilty pleasures as often as possible.
