Sarah co-created the first marketing campaign at Miiko Skin Co (Nourish 2016), manages website security and updating, and successfully fostered publicity through applications and awards with Corporate Knights’ Magazine, EcoStar Awards, Douglas Magazine, and Victoria Business of Chambers.
Anneke is studying marketing at Camosun College and has spent a few years working with local YAM magazine as a co-op student. She became interested in Miiko Skin Co when she was given an opportunity to try the products at YAM.
