I am a Cree woman, and a mother of two. An ultimate colonial Canadian mix with French, Welsh, Scott and Irish background, I am an Indigenous woman. My ancestral lineage found themselves resigned to Kawacatoose reserve in Saskatchewan (Treaty 7, Circa Sept,15 1874), originally from turtle island and powerful trappers and traders of the prairies.
My mother found it necessary to remove me from Regina Sask when I was 6 years old and I was raised in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. I have been honored with a deep reverence for Mother Earth and a young life well versed in traditional protocol and ceremony. As a young adult I traded it all in for puff and lace and left to study aesthetics and hairdressing in Vancouver, British Columbia. I originally focused on image only; hair, skin, nails but as I worked more and more with people in the chair it naturally evolved into wellness coaching. Moreover, as worked more with people in aesthetics and on a massage table it turned into energy work and exceeded body work. I have been in British Columbia working with beauty, health and wellness for 18 years.

I seek the softest and simplest form of beauty in an individual or in a product for the maximum results.

I also strongly believe that accountability with a healthy dose of humor is what makes a whole and spiritual human being. I plan on living a full life and I will walk lightly. Mi/Na/H/Ya/w/I/n: I will walk in beauty.
Our impact on the natural world is great, too great to be secondary. We can and should consider our small singular impact, daily. With that said I choose to measure my impact, I chose to walk consciously and I choose to share a way that you can too. With gratitude and thanks to the ancient territories of
