What business or organization are you involved with? Real estate

What’s your favourite thing about living in the Okanagan? We live in paradise! My favourite thing is the unparalleled beauty and weather. I’m so passionate about where we live.

If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would you choose and why? Gwen Stefani. I just adore her!

What’s your go-to happy place? Knox Mountain. I can’t stop taking photos of the views.

What are you most proud of? My bodybuilding achievements. I had no clue how disciplined the sport is. I have such an appreciation for it now!

What are the top three things on your bucket list?
• Travel the world
• Help everyone access clean water
• Invest in land outside of Canada

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Mystery meat in Thailand. LOL.

Latest movie or book? Birdbox

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? When I bought my first house in Vernon at 19, my dad visited from Vancouver and took me to Rona, where he purchased all of the must-have items a homeowner needs. He then helped me to improve the home and do simple energy saving upgrades over the whole weekend. I just lost my father, so this memory is special to me.

If today were your last day, how would you spend it? Eating all my favourite foods with a very expensive bottle of wine. Or two. Or three.
