Erica Ryan-Gagné with Mary Polak, Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation

As a young entrepreneur, Erica Ryan-Gagné identified the need for nail care services in Skidegate. With a clear vision, she left the island to complete her education in esthetic services and upon her return successfully launched Eri-Cut & Nailed, a home-based nail care business. Erica currently provides services to over 200 clients and is planning an expansion to her salon, scheduled for completion in March, 2012. Erica values entrepreneurship training and has successfully completed the Province’s Aboriginal BEST program and has participated in the Youth Entrepreneurs’ symposium offering by New Relationship Trust.
