Description of my gift

 

Inspired by great leaders and teachers such as Deepak Chopra, Dr. Vasant Lad, Sadhguru and a very dear friend, Dr. Sivakumar Varma, from Kerala, India, I have been led upon a path to be of assistance in sharing the amazing science of Ayurveda. For over 20 years, I have embraced an Ayurvedic Lifestyle.  Ayurveda comes from the ancient Vedic tradition of India, where it has been practised for more than 6,000 years. It is recognized by the World Health Organization as the world’s oldest continuous system of Natural health-care. Ayurveda, Yoga, Meditation, Astrology (Jyotish), and Vastu (architectural design), all came from the ancient Vedic tradition of India.  Although I practice all, I chose to study Vastu (the Vedic art of architecture, design and engineering) and Ayurveda, a traditional system of medicine based on balance in bodily systems through diet, yoga and meditation.

Experiences That Have Expanded My Gift & Me

 

I was born and raised on a beautiful dairy farm in Ontario where my parents thoroughly lived from nature and its resources.  

 

I was blessed to teach Math & Chemistry for 8 years at College Catholique Samuel Genest in Ottawa to high school teenagers who taught me more about life than I could ever have learned on my own in a lifetime.  We moved to Victoria in 1995 and made this place our home.

 

Then, for fifteen years, I  was a portfolio manager for RBC Dominion Securities in Victoria where I built my client base teaching personal finances and investments at UVic and offfering public workshops.  Again, life gifted me with more enlightening experiences than I could ever imagine in guiding families and listening to their family experiences around money and relationships.  

 

Then, from 2012 to 2017, by husband & I  transformed this 15 room Inn, The Craigmyle, into a beautiful boutique hotel where travellers from all over the world and friends and family of local residents enjoyed a very different lodging experience.   From 2013 to 2020 we created a second Inn, known today as Auberge Victoria.

From 2016 to now we created Bella Farm! combining all our past expertise and passion.  This magical property offers serenity, charm and organic living.  It is a 20-acre sanctuary when one can rest and enjoy optimum well-being.  I know many more opportunities and experiences will come my way.  I enjoy change and creating.  Hence, I know I will embark on many more career paths but always embracing an Ayurvedic Lifestyle.  It's simply the best.
