Worth Every Penny (WEP) is a multi-layered, for-profit, Social Enterprise that operates globally to create opportunities that foster and support the empowerment of women and their families and improves the sustainability of our communities. Our goal is to mentor and support people to collaborate and leverage their skills and strengths - particularly in art and design, health and wellness as well as business planning and funding workshops for women.
Penny has been involved through her extensive network of women in the Cariboo Chilcotin region, developing and facilitating cultural programs, events and workshops and has also has been instrumental in supporting roles and working with women, youth and elders through the delivery of holistic healing. With her father’s heritage in the Shuswap nation and her mother’s history rooted in the Chilcotin for three generations she is currently working with an author on two books. The first, to be published in 2018, is the memoirs of a Shuswap elder and the second, 1000 Strands, is a true epic family biography set across a millennium in Europe, Wales, England, West Indies, and Australia - arriving ultimately on the Cotton Ranch, in the breathtaking Chilcotin.
