Vanessa, I think this might have to do with the GMB accounts language settings.

The categories in your first screenshot look like Canadian versions of the Categories.

Can you check that out? I have a feeling it might have something to do with the Language Variant that was set-up with the Owner account.

I can show you what I mean since we work in the same office :)

Thanks Colan, I didn't really understand the question since there was not much context to explain the screen shots.

Also wondered if she worked for you due to location, but she didn't use an Imprezzio email, so I just wasn't sure. Now I know. :)

It turned out to be the language settings. Switching the Language Variant from United Kingdom to United States fixed the issue. Thanks Colan! :D
