I've always had a passion for the outdoors ever since I was a child so its not surprising my career has become what it is today. I started foraging food on the West coast when I lived on Vancouver Island and developed a true passion for this. I eventually moved home to Goulais River and right away started looking for foods and natural medicines that grew locally. That's when I came across Chaga. I started harvesting it and using it daily when I realized how great I felt. The more I read about it and the more I heard first hand from people that they were healed from this mushroom, the more I knew that this was something I wanted to pursue as a business. I started TruNorth Naturals about 3 years ago and haven't looked back since. I'm looking into harvesting other types of medicinal mushrooms in the near future such as Reishi and Turkey Tail because of the amazing health benefits they possess as well.
