Christie Garbett

admin@yrna.ca

I am Christie Garbett and I have lived in the Yukon since early 2008. My career path has taken many different directions from Aesthetics to Dog Grooming to working in the Yukon Mining industry. I am very excited to be part of the YRNA organization working in the field of regulation, supporting safe practice and assisting registrants with registration and licensing.

In my spare time I love to create art, listen to music, read and grow vegetables. I have two Yukon rescue fur babies named Rosie and Betty that are spoiled with love.
