Professionally, I am a healer, licensed acupuncturist and co-founder of a wellness clinic. I am also a graduate student doing my Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology.
In this lifetime, I was also a corporate banker, aerobics and yoga teacher. I have a brown belt in Karate and I was in the Police Cadets when I was young.
My Pottery Journey
I started taking pottery lessons to help deal with my grief after my father died. I did not expect to fall in love with the process. (I almost quit after the second class but no one needs to know that)
Pottery has taught me that it is okay to be imperfect, to trust in the process and most importantly, to slow down and be present.
(Because when you are not present at the pottery wheel, the whole vessel collapses!)
I enjoy experimenting with different techniques and colors. This is why I seldom create the same design twice.
Who Am I?
I do what brings me joy and have spent the last few years breaking down social and family expectations.
I am strong, a good listener and I can hold space when clients and friends are in need. I am calm in stressful situations and I can easily adjust to what is needed in each situation.
I cry often and I laugh a lot. I am grateful to be married to a man who makes me laugh daily.
I am nourished by my soul friends who are brilliant at showing up and holding space. Hence, I am fiercely protective of the people I love.
I am an avid reader as I am constantly seeking knowledge and the truth. This means I try to speak up when needed.
I am a homebody. I love nature, the mountain, the ocean, funky socks, and coffee.
In order to be a good human, I spend a lot of time in nature. I have a deep connection with nature, hence I have a strong desire to save the world.
I believe that when as a collective, we are healthy on all levels – mental, physical and spiritual, we will be kinder to ourselves, the people around us and mother earth.
My work in ceramics is one way I dream of contributing to making the world – your world, a bit better.
My intention is that when you are using your mug or bowl, that you know you are not alone, that imperfection is good and that you feel a connection to nature.
Fun fact: I once officiated a wedding for close friends on a boat.
I live and work on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
Commonly known as Vancouver, British Columbia.
