From Women's
Shelter to CEO

What if I told you that this all started
from the bed of a women’s shelter in
Vancouver, BC when I was 21?

Maybe Evio’s story can help break a stigma; Evio was created from the bed of a shelter when I made the difficult choice to leave anunhealthy relationship with $15 and a laptop. It was a full shelter which meant I lived in a shared room and 29 other women in a secured house with one bathroom. I cherished every moment I had for selfcare. The shelter team and volunteers would often say, “Brandi won’t be here for long.” In turn I told myself, “I can’t be here for long.”

It all began with our lip gloss in 2012

It all began with our lip gloss in 2012

I taught myself to mock products on photoshop by watching YouTube videos and photoshopped a catalogue of lip gloss named after people who inspired me and took the streets to pre-sell products to small local boutiques.

This is how I made enough money to get on my feet and bootstrap Evio for the first five years. I recognize that my outcome has been very different than most.

“I dedicated my life and career to breaking stigmas”

Dedicated my life Dedicated my life

“I dedicated my life and career to breaking stigmas”

“When I try to pin point why, I always remember the shelter team planting the seed that I wouldn’t be there for long. This sentiment helped me break down my own limiting beliefs and stigmas of what I thought life after the shelter would look like. Ever since, I have dedicated my life and career to breaking stigmas and building community fuelled by kindness. Thank you for being on this journey, and for breaking stigmas for a kind and conscious future.”
