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.
