Life in General
Tell us about your background. Where are you originally from?
I am originally from Kamloops, and I moved here to Vernon with my family when I was six. I’ve moved away several times but always ended up coming back; it feels like home and there’s no place more beautiful.
What are you passionate about? What motivates you?
I have many passions: good food, wine, and gardening are a few of my favourites. My daughter motivates me to try to be a better person every day.
What do you think is the best thing about living in the Okanagan?
Everything, what’s not to love? The scenery, the wineries, the lakes, the parks, the recreation, the art scene. It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
I think it would be nice if I could heal through touch.
Who has been your hero? Someone that you look up to in life?
My late father. He was patient, kind, wise, and he had a strong ethical compass that I seek to follow.
How do you incorporate Health and Wellness into your life?
I stay away from processed foods and sugar as much as possible, meditate often, and spend time outdoors and in nature when possible.
