Meet Alissa Kristiansen
Alissa Kristiansen loved to make home-made soap as a hobby. “I had enjoyed both the science and the artistry of making soap,” Alissa notes. In turn, she decided to take the plunge and turn it into a business.
Besides being able to do a job that often seems more like fun, Alissa also appreciates that she is able to have control over her work hours. It allows her to spend more time with her young son and be available for all of his activities. Alissa was raised in Vanderhoof but moved away for a few years, she returned in 2011 to raise her son, noting that Vanderhoof is a “family-oriented community.” She is happy that the community she loves has embraced both her and her business. During her down time, Alissa enjoys doing a variety of crafts or curling up with a good book. She also likes to get outside and go hiking and camping.
Creative. Natural. Beautiful.
