When the COVID Pandemic hit in March 2020, Emerald Earth became a full time small business. Alongside making and selling natural skincare products, Sherrie also opened a Spa Facility in Valemount located at the Best Western Hotel to offer her 18 years of skills and experience in massage and spa treatments.
