Maggie Langrick, CEO and Publisher
Maggie founded LifeTree Media in 2013 to fulfill a long-held dream to lead a company dedicated to aiding personal growth and conscious communication, after a 14-year career as a magazine and newspaper editor. Before founding LifeTree, she was Arts and Life editor for the Vancouver Sun. In her teens and early twenties, Maggie had an all-too-brief but thoroughly enjoyable career as a film and television actress.
Maggie was shortlisted by Editors Canada for the 2015 Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence, for her work on Shell, by Michelle Stewart. She also serves on the Advocacy Committee for the Independent Book Publishers Association. Maggie lives in Vancouver, British Columbia and Los Angeles, California.
Jesmine Cham, Publishing Coordinator
Jesmine grew up with a love of books and pursued that passion into the publishing industry.

She honed her editing and marketing skills at Geist Magazine, Greystone Books, Quietly, and other organizations. In between freelance projects, Jesmine is either engaging in acts of mindfulness or whittling down (and adding) to her TBR list.
Heather Grant, Accounting
Heather grew up with stacks of books on her bedside table, featuring all types of fiction. Her reading list expanded to include business and accounting textbooks while she attended the Southern Institute of Technology, pursuing an accounting designation. Her early career was in land development before she took some years off with her boys. She returned to work as a consultant for small businesses in a multitude of industries, rounding out her hands-on business knowledge. Her desire to help small business owners led her to join the team at LifeTree Media in spring 2017. Heather’s goal is to make numbers and finance as approachable as possible.
