Sheila, Owner

Although Sheila had a successful career in finance, she increasingly felt unsatisfied with the lack of deeper, meaningful interactions that her profession offered.

In 1995 by lucky happenstance, Sheila was introduced to someone in the adult toy industry and began working shortly thereafter as a salesperson and home party representative. She found her passion and for the past 26 years has worked in this field, and opened her own store in 2005.

Sheila felt adult stores needed a shakeup and that she was just the person to do it! Since the beginning she has worked to break down adult store stereotypes by providing practical, informed consultations and quality, innovative products. Sheila now has over two decades of experience selecting products to enhance intimacy and pleasure for people of all identities and sexual orientations and is ecstatic to be offering some in her new online store.

She has two adult children and resides in the beautiful sea-side town of Parksville, Vancouver Island, British Columbia where she actively participates in Breast Cancer awareness and the survivorship dragon boat community.

Miriam, Manager

Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Miriami spent over 15 years designing and manufacturing clothing, operating retail stores for alternative lifestyles, and heading customer service teams for major events.

Dreaming of a slower pace of life on Vancouver Island, Miriam moved to Oceanside at the start of the Pandemic in 2020. After meeting Sheila, she was convinced that Sexessories’ history, and high standards for customer service were a perfect match for her entrepreneurial experience and customer service excellence.

For Miriam, designing and executing window displays that are engaging while subverting stereotypes, is one of the highlights of how she has enhanced the Sexessories experience.

Personal passions include life-long learning, the textile arts and outdoor activities.
