Sharon Marshall – Métis/Cree entrepreneur living in Lantzville
Sharon Marshall, a Métis/Cree entrepreneur living in Lantzville, BC, is an administrative professional with 3 decades of experience in private and public administration, all levels of government, and First Nations. Sharon has also provided administrative, creative and technical support to individuals and organizations globally. Having only self-identified 8-9 years ago, Sharon has embraced her heritage and finds herself compelled to help other Indigenous women find their voice. She has created Canada’s first 20-week online digital literacy and virtual support training program. Currently training Indigenous women across Canada, when the DEVAs are finished, they will become Digital Executive Virtual Assistants working for DEVA, an Indigenous digital training and temp staffing agency.
Sharon is CEO of Cree8iv Collaboration Inc dba DEVA Training & Staffing Solutions, a company she founded to creatively collaborate with individuals and organizations to bring programs and services to remote communities. Her first program is the DEVA 20-week Online Training Program. She teaches digital literacy, entrepreneurship, and virtual administrative skills to Indigenous women with the idea that they don’t have to leave their communities for training and once training is over, they have the ability to support themselves and their communities.
To remove as many barriers as possible to the training, Sharon has kept the tuition very low. DEVA is launching their first cohort in Onion Lake, Saskatchewan in January 2021 and is looking for sponsors. Sponsorship packages are available here.
