I grew up in Alberta and came to Vancouver in 2008 to train in a second career. I fell in love with this city and decided to stay despite leaving my friends and family behind.  Cohousing is the best of worlds for me in that I can enjoy close relationships and support within this community, but still have my own space when I need some quiet time.  I’m a recent e-bike commuter and enthusiast!  I enjoy theatre, knitting, reading and tap dancing.

I grew up in Mexico City in a large loving family.  When I came to Canada, I wanted to have the same sense of shared community that I experienced in Mexico.  I’ve never lived alone and always found a way to live among friends in large houses.  I love the city (my degree is in urban planning!) I bike everywhere and don’t own or plan to own a car.  I’m looking forward to my next step in community living at Our Urban Village.

My attraction to cohousing is probably the result of our family moving every couple of years when I was a child.  I have a built-up longing for deep roots and knowing my neighbours.  Location is a big deal for me.  I’m a walker and an urban location means strolling down Main Street for coffee with a friend or hitting the library and community centre.  I love art, really long walks like the Camino Real and I’m a relentless reader.
