Meet the Founders
Leanne and Ashley both grew up in North Vancouver and have been life long friends. They met in elementary school and were classmates through high school. After graduating high school they went their separate ways career wise, but now through divine timing, Ashley and Leanne have come together to pair their complementary backgrounds and years of experience to birth Vain & Vine.
Leanne is a multi-faceted healthcare professional with an Honor’s Bachelor of Science degree (double majoring in chemistry and biology) and an Honor’s Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy at the University of British Columbia. After a stint in Investment Banking, she shifted her attention to pharmacy working as a registered pharmacist since 2015 and store manager serving the Greater Vancouver Area. As a chemist, biologist and pharmacist Leanne has dreamed of starting her own health and wellness brand to use her years of knowledge and expertise to improve the well-being of others.
