Sales Representatives Team
Vancouver and Fraser Valley
I started with Ecotrend in April of 2013 after many years in the aquatics industry as a product manager. I am an entrepreneur at heart, and thrive on the challenge of being linked to so many brands and customers in the dynamic natural health industry. Every day I learn something new, and can thank my customers for continuously teaching and growing with me as we work towards a more preventative health mandate in Canada. In my spare time you can find me riding my bike or skiing in the mountains around Vancouver.
Vancouver and North Vancouver
My interest in human health and nutrition started in my school years, leading me to a degree in Biological Sciences, and then to become a Holistic Nutritionist. Anyone who knows me would say I love learning about new foods, products and modalities to improve our health and overall vitality. I have a strong background in supplements, and it pairs well with several years of sales experience. I have a true passion to help educate and advocate health and wellness to retailers, consumers and friends alike.
Vancouver and North Vancouver
I have been with Ecotrend since July 2013. I have a strong interest in natural health and I’m very passionate about my work. I truly believe that health care and a healthy lifestyle are intrinsically linked and that each serves to support the other. In my free time I love spending time with my family and I also like to travel. I’ve always believed that travel is one of the best educations that money can buy. Each culture has something unique to offer and I feel fortunate to have had many opportunities to travel near and far over the years.
Vancouver Island/Gulf Island
I started my journey into the world of health at the age of 18 with an herbal apprenticeship program. This sparked a deep love of natural remedies and healing. After working in the health food industry for 20 plus years in a retail environment, I joined the Ecotrend team in 2009 covering Vancouver Island and the Gulf Island territories. When I am not working with this wonderful company I spend my down time teaching my own herb classes as well as a government funded program for Aboriginal youth during the summer.
BC Interior and Kootenays
I have had the great privilege of working in the Natural Health Industry for the past 24 years. 18 of those years I have worked as an account manager and also had a practice in Holistic Medicine for 13 of those years. Living holistically is my true passion and it influences every aspect of my life. I am excited to work with a company who shares the same values as me.
SK and MB
The natural health industry has been a huge part of my life for the past 28 years. Gaining experience as a retailer, sales representative, product developer, educator and small business mentor has given me the opportunity to share my experience and learn. I have acquired certification in Iridology, Reflexology, Live and Dried Layer Microscopy, Reiki, and as a Registered Nutritional Product Advisor. This journey led me to join Ecotrend’s amazing team back in February of 2017. Along with my partner of 23 years, my three children and one joyful grandson, each and every day is an adventure.
I've always been interested in helping people improve their health. Over the years, this passion has taken on many evolving forms. From helping customers directly at the retail level in my earlier years, to educating store owners and staff about the unique benefits of specific products as a rep, to product development; connecting people with quality, effective products providing tangible results has always been my passion. I believe that one should take a natural approach to healing, as Western medicine has been around for a mere fraction of the time that natural medicine has.
When I’m not working on landscaping around my home, you can find me somewhere in the Great Outdoors. If I’m not climbing up a mountain, I’m enjoying skiing down one or pitching tent beneath one. My passion for a balanced, vibrant life has been a wonder-filled journey of constant learning and challenging myself. Although new to the Ecotrend Sales Team, I have had the great fortune of working in this industry for over 17 years now, sharing my passion for health and wellness with my great customers and my wonderful family.
AB, SK, MB
With 20 plus years in sales including the last 13 years in the Natural Health industry, I have a passion for working with my retail, FDM, and practitioner partners in providing b2b solutions that have a positive result in their business’s bottom line. Passionate about Natural Health; I find my purpose when providing product knowledge in a way that can be disseminated to the public. In my spare time I am an avid downhill skier, and golfer. When not on the golf course, you may find me in the mountains backcountry camping, or hiking filling my camera with lots of landscape and wildlife photographs.
Greater Toronto Area and West
I have always been passionate about nutrition, health and the wellbeing of others. Although I pursued another career for 20+ years, I always made time to study and practice holistic medicine and nutrition. In the 21 st year I decided to take the leap and become a Nutritionist. The CEO and founder of Ecotrend, John Harrison, has a passion for health, the environment and high quality products which inspired me to dive into the world of selling natural products. I have been representing Ecotrend’s great range of brands for over 15 years. I am lucky to say I work with an amazing group of retailers that make my days in the field interesting and fun!
Central and Eastern Ontario
I have always been interested in natural health. I started taking different classes at Wild Rose College right out of high school. I have worked in the natural health industry almost ever since. I have owned a health food store and a colon hydrotherapy clinic, and after all these years I am still very passionate about this industry. I love that we get to help improve lives and health. I feel very blessed with this new chapter of my life, and am very excited to partner and work with a conscientious company such as Ecotrend, and all the outstanding retailers and professionals in my territory.
My journey into healthy lifestyle started with my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science. Over the years I developed an interest in nutrition and the usage of food and nutritional supplementation in achieving optimal health which led me to a degree in Holistic Nutrition. Over the last 20 years I've been involved with various wholesale and retail supplement companies. I am thrilled to be representing a conscious company such as Ecotrend, who values quality brands and customer satisfaction.
