You may know Lisa as “the fur pom pom lady”, the “goat milk soap lady”, or remember her from the jazz lounges of Whitehorse. Lisa was a carpenter before moving to Haines Junction to raise 2 daughters with her husband Andy. She loved living in a community, and being part of the network of volunteers there. She started and ran her company Minus 40 Fur in Haines Junction, sewing fur directly from the trapline. In 2020, her family packed up the goats, chickens and trapping/sewing supplies and moved to Whitehorse. Lisa is excited to work at Yukonstruct, and to connect with entrepreneurs from the communities.
