ABOUT

Ashton Lacey Consulting (ALC) is an Indigenous owned small business. ​

 

My name is Ashton Harry and I am a member of the Tsilhqot'in Nation. I was born and raised in Tl'etinqox. I was raised in a traditional way by my grandparents. Se ?etsu Xinli (my late grandmother was) Victorine Stump, Se ?etsi Xinli (my late grandfather was) Myles Pigeon. Se ?inkwel (my mother) is Eleanor Cooper. Everything I learned about being a hard working contributing member of my community I learned from my mother and grandparents. I was fortunate to have many strong matriarchs in my life that taught me what it was to be a matriarch, and grandparents who took my traditional education very seriously. All the values I embody today come from the Tsilhqot'in influences in my life. I value respectful relationships, integrity, honesty, and fairness. I have always believed that these simple things carry me through life in a way that make my ?esiggdam (ancestors) proud.

 ​In 2023, I completed a Masters of Arts in Leadership and was apart of the first cohort to graduate from the Executive Leadership program with Royal Roads University, I also concurrently obtained a Masters certificate in Change Management. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts with a major in First Nations Studies, with two minors; one in General Business and the other in Planning with a special focus in First Nations Environmental Planning, from the University of Northern British Columbia. In 2013, I also received a diploma in Business Administration from the College of New Caledonia. ​

 

I bring with me over 5 years of Executive Director experience with Indigenous government, as well as extensive knowledge of Indigenous Services Canada, Emergency Management, and leadership. Throughout my previous work experience I was able to develop a land use plan, community comprehensive plan, several governance policies, managed projects that included community safety initiatives, and advocated for community led child and family services.  

 

I was fortunate enough to be able to procure a certification for Land Use Planning from the Naut'sa Mawt Tribal Council, and completed a Indigenous Governance Policy writing training with FNPSS, and so much more.

 

 ​It has been my dream to work for Indigenous communities and give back in a way that moves communities forward toward goals they wish to achieve. Self-Governance should always be a long term vision, and I am ready to meet communities wherever they are at and assist with whatever projects they have in mind that create success for them.
