I spent the first two years of my life in Edmonton before I began a travelling. The travel bug was implanted in me at an early age throughout my childhood, my parents worked and studied across Canada and overseas, so we were always on the move. When I was 15, I moved with my Mom to Rome, where I did my International Baccalaureate, and spent 3 glorious years learning new languages, art and culture. I spent summers in Sorano, an Etruscan hilltop town in Tuscany populated by artisans. I studied ceramics, hiked and practised Italian with some of the most amazing people on this earth.
At the University of Victoria, I continued to pursue languages — English Literature, French, Spanish, Italian. Communication has always been very important to me and the idea of being able to travel almost anywhere and speak the local language drove my studies.
When my studies ended, I worked as a legal assistant in my father’s busy family law firm in Victoria. In addition to his law firm, my father owns a real-estate company in Edmonton, and while helping him with this part of his business I found I preferred it to the legal profession, so I left the law firm and set out to work my way up in the real estate industry. (Life is too short to do anything other than what you are passionate about!) I worked for Homes by Avi for about a year, starting as a hostess and working my way up to a Sales Associate. I decided that I wanted to take the next step and get licensed.
