Portia Tickell spent her childhood with her head buried in books, writing stories and dreaming under huckleberry bushes. She has had a successful career in the film industry working on feature films and television shows all over the world and owned the much-celebrated children’s bookstore called Once Upon a Huckleberry Bush. As a dreamer and passion seeker, Portia has always yearned to make a difference, so she with her business partner, Janet Shirley created betweenbyskip.com, where they create tween/teen fashion and empower girls to make change and create their own future. Portia lives with her husband, daughter, and a menagerie of farm animals on a hobby farm in Kelowna, BC. She has no idea about farming.

Having started out her journey with a career in Conflict Resolution for the Department of National Defence followed by an 8 year stint in Strategic Planning, Rachelle felt that something was missing and that she wasn’t living up to her authentic self. While her business background and passion to help people were still very much alive, Rachelle was also passionate about creative arts and was a hobbyist photographer working with various clubs in Ontario and the Northwest Territories. It wasn’t until 2015 that Rachelle decided to combine her passion for empowering women with photography and started Rachelle Alexandra Photography. A service dedicated to building women’s confidence through visual art. Today Rachelle owns and operates www.raphoto.ca and is super excited to be a part of and to share her knowledge with the members of Kelowna Women in Business. Don’t be shy to come say hello!
