Seven years ago she was living in a shelter. Today, she is the CEO of her own company.
At 21,Brandi Leifo was living in a women's shelter where she created the concept for Evio Beauty. From humble beginnings, she raised millions through strategic alliances and is on a mission to create a kinder, more conscious future.
Launched in 2019, Evio is a judgement-free zone where affordable beauty - made with good-for-you ingredients - builds community, fuelled by kindness, to encourage everyone to do the right thing, even when no one is looking. As an alumni of the esteemed Sephora Accelerate program, one of Chatelaine Magazine's 2018 Women of the Year and one of 2020's Top 25 Women of Influence, Leifso continues to lead Evio with kindness in mind with initiatives such as the 20,000 acts of kindness for 2020 and its 1-for-1 program that donates product for every product purchased to organizations that support the underdog, such as TheCanadian Women's Foundation and Woodgreen's Homeward Bound.
