Best Immigrant Entrepreneur


Please tell us your personal story and about your business. How you started, and how you have overcome challenges.

With my passion for nature and wellbeing, I wanted to find a way to share my knowledge, unique skill set and promote self-care. I am an Australian qualified Naturopathic Doctor and Massage Therapist and have lived in British Columbia since 2010. With no success in converting my university degree to allow me to practice Naturopathy in Canada, I hoped to stay working within the natural health industry. I found work in luxury Day Spas and became a skilled Spa Practitioner. Working in beautiful spas and locations throughout BC, recently managing and operating an Eco Spa on the west coast of Haida Gwaii. I had difficulty finding one brand that was natural, organic, locally made, eco friendly, suitable to use in all spa treatments and had outstanding skincare results..... this sparked an idea! Two years ago I moved to Valemount BC to be with my fiance, enjoy a mountain lifestyle and be close to nature. With limited career opportunity in the area, I was motivated to take the leap, follow my dream and start something for myself. Emerald Earth Organic Spa was born. As an entrepreneur my mission is to promote self-care, to create a brand of affordable spa-quality natural products, and open a spa facility offering skilled services to assist in healing the mind body and soul. My small business has been well received in the Robson Valley local community, with 5 local businesses stocking my products, new customers eager to try Emerald Earth's products who are now hooked and incorporating these into their everyday skincare routine. I have a regular client base of locals and visitors alike booking their spa experience for relaxation, body maintenance and self-care. I am beyond excited to see my business continue to grow, receive feedback and encouragement from my customers and see the benefits my brand is making to their overall health and wellbeing.

Why do you deserve to win the Best Immigrant Entrepreneur award?

Being a entrepreneur and small business owner is a labour of love, a rollercoaster ride of blood sweat and tears, but every minute of hard work pays off when you know you are doing what you love and doing it for yourself. Emerald Earth Organic Spa has allowed me to grow, gain confidence in my abilities, overcome fears, recognize my weaknesses, become part of my local community and promote the importance of nature and self-care. I have 100% self-funded my business to date and look forward to seeing profitable growth. Once financially stable I would like to employ other professional entrepreneurs who specialize in their field to take over my areas of weakness and collaborate for a bigger and better future. As my brand grows, I will continue to research and learn, creating affordable natural skincare, safe and suitable for all skin types. I want to spread the word of the importance of pure, premium, botanical ingredients and the elimination of chemicals in products. I will continue to source environmentally friendly packaging and offer product refills for local customers. I feel honoured to be nominated for an award, with hopes this can help promote brand recognition and the importance of self-care. I look forward to seeing my skincare brand in stores and spas through Canada, and encourage the public to treat themselves, to look good and feel great. Through this nomination, I want to promote the opening of my small business in a small town, share my success story and encourage others in the community to follow their dreams, take the chance and become an entrepreneur. I am looking forward to seeing Valemount continue to thrive and grow. If COVID taught us one thing, it was the importance of staying local, shopping local and supporting small businesses in order to keep our economy going.
