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 Xili (my grandmother was) Victorine Stump, Se ?etsi Xili (my 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.
