My purpose is to share the teachings of various types of holistic modalities that nourish the soul and promote well-being with emphasis on Ayurveda.
A student, an educator, a mentor
Description of my gift
Inspired by great leaders such as Deepak Chopra 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.
With the help and Dr. Varma and, we created the first Ayurvedic centre in Victoria in 2001, "Be Now". We were then blessed with the birth of our amazing daughter, Chanel. With the presence of an inner light, intuitive insight and a loving guiding force, that already knows the way, Chanel grew up to be this amazing happy soul! And we ... as happy parents! I believe that living an Ayurvedic lifestyle is the secret!
Let me share a poem she wrote to me on October 3, 2015, on my birthday. Chanel was 10!
I love the moon that shines bright at night
The stars that twinkle in the sky
for this is YOU!
For with all my heart
I cherish You!
You are the universe that shines bright in my eyes as I see the world.
For you are YOU!

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 in Ottawa to high school teenagers who taught me more about life than I could ever have learned on my own in a lifetime.
Then, for fifteen years, I was a portfolio manager for RBC Dominion Securities where I built my client base teaching personal finances and investments. 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.
From 2012 to 2017, by husband, my daughter and I have transformed this 15 room Inn into a beautiful boutique hotel where travellers from all over the world and friends and family of local residents enjoyed a very unique lodging experience.
Then we created Bella Farm from 2016 to 2020! combining all our past expertise and passion. This magical property offered serenity, charm and organic living.
