Kelsey Matheson-McCord – Vice President, Co-Owner
Kelsey Matheson-McCord was born and raised in Calgary, Canada and is now based in Toronto. Shortly after learning how to walk she discovered that the next most interesting thing to do was perform. She began dancing and acting at the age of six and later in her career traveled the world working professionally as a model, an actor, a dancer & choreographer, and a magician’s assistant. Her love for the arts inspired her to start creating her own work and became a film and theater Producer.
Kelsey’s creative side is also balanced with a strong business background which includes working in Marketing, Advertising & Sales, Business Consulting and Entrepreneurship. Kelsey has a few irons in the fire as she continues to develop other business opportunities and ventures, is writing her first book, and continues to keep her inner artist alive by painting and sculpting with her family.
Andrea Drost – Bookkeeping, German Heilpraktiker
Knowing how to keep the books is a useful skill even in the jungle. But only numbers would bore the licensed German Heilpraktiker (“Healing Practitioner”), who has gained unsettling insights in harmaceutical
marketing, PR and press work. She is passionate about educating people about other ways to health. During internships at the practice of Dr. Gisela Slavin (Munich-Germany), a renown German phD specialized in the treatment of “lost cases” with chronic diseases, she learned how to re-establish a healthy metabolism and to enhance the energy level of the body. Areas of specialty are ear needle & laser acupuncture (Nogier/ Bahr, disturbing fields).
