our urban village cohousing 

a home of your own, neighbours you know

I grew up in Alberta and came to the Vancouver area 11 years ago to train for 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 ebike commuter and enthusiast! I enjoy theatre (especially musicals), knitting, reading and tap dancing

My attraction to an urban village 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 to 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. I like lively conversation, but also need time to myself.

I grew up in bustling Mexico City in a large and loving family.  When I moved to Canada, I wanted to find the same sense of community that I left behind in Mexico.  I've never lived alone and have always shared my home with friends.  I don't own a car and bike everywhere even in our rainy winters.  I'm looking forward to moving into cohousing and having dinner with friends and neighbours in our common space.
