I am a high achieving, high energy, loving, creative woman who thrives on collaboration and challenge and who enjoys being a naturopathic physician, a mother, and a politician.
I have discovered over time that I experience deep meaning and purpose in my life when I find myself on the other side of an achievement that, at first, I utterly feared.
For me, living equates to helping. My best self comes forth when I can be there for others and do things to make them feel better.
As a healer, I need to work very hard on my own personal growth. I am only able to help to the level I have evolved. To follow the challenging path of personal growth is an honor and privilege that allows me to be a more compassionate and caring naturopathic physician.
Leadership, at its core, is about helping and serving others today and imagining a new way forward tomorrow. As I work through the challenges of proactive personal growth, I have noticed that my methods of demonstrating my style of leadership often seem unorthodox and chaotic as opposed to organized and calm. During the most chaotic of these times of transformation, I try to practice self-love and self-care, and if I cannot, I reach out to my small, trusted circle and ask for help.
Currently, I have the immense pleasure to participate in life as a mother to an energetic, intelligent, and deep-hearted athlete and daughter. I am a Naturopathic Physician in my new modern centre of excellence in naturopathic medicine, Ardour Wellness, which means the passion of life. I also serve as a Councillor elected in the City of Surrey, where I describe the people as having small city hearts and big city minds.
At the end of my days, if I can reflect that I have loved courageously, that I said yes to helping others, that I contributed to my community, that I healed wherever I could, and that I took as many opportunities as possible to jump into the abyss and shine, then I will deem that I have lived my life on my terms, and I will be at a place of deep peace and gratitude.
