Welcome back to another episode of “I’m a Millionaire. So Now What?” 🎙🎙🎙 the podcast for self-made millionaires, busy entrepreneurs and creative startup owners!


I’m really excited to introduce you to today’s guest: Kyla Cullain. 🎉🎉🎉


In a classic example of our kind of innovation, she took her current specialty (in her case, nursing) and spun that off, in an entirely new direction.


As co-founder of BuildAble, Kyla and her teams specialize in accessible renovations for people with mobility issues. 🛠🛠🛠


She’s a multiple award-winning entrepreneur with a passion for social justice, human rights and the advancement of accessibility as a health care issue.


Trust me, you’ll enjoy getting to know her.



As co-founder of Canada’s only nurse-managed construction company, Kyla Cullain is the perfect example of what being part of the Self Made Nation is all about. BuildAble is an innovative merger of health care professionals and renovations experts, who specialize in accessible renovations and accessibility consulting for individuals with physical disabilities, those with mobility-limiting illnesses or injuries, and for seniors that want to safely age in place.


Kyla is a multiple award-winning entrepreneur, including being honoured with Businesswoman of the Year, Alumni of Distinction in Health Sciences, WOBOT Business Excellence Award’s Company to Watch and the City of Ottawa’s Accessibility Award, and her passion for social justice, human rights and the advancement of accessibility as a health care issue, have been an integral part of bringing BuildAble to life.


As a busy entrepreneur, she still manages to give back through teaching, as a part-time professor at the University of Ottawa, and as a clinical instructor and faculty advisor at Algonquin College in the Baccalaureate of Science in Nursing (BScN) program.


She’s an avid traveller, scuba diver, a new mom, and has regularly been voted 'most likely to be hit by a car crossing the street trying to pet all the dogs'.
