Occupation: Co-founder and CEO, SPARK Creations & Company Inc.

Location: Vancouver, B.C.
When I was six years old, I experienced what it felt to be left out and excluded. That experience has fueled me to ensure everyone I meet feels seen, heard and loved.

That SPARK has helped me realize my life purpose is “to live WOW and LOVE completely”! I fulfill and serve this purpose through focusing on people and culture development, community relations, and leadership coaching. For over 20 years, I have had the honour of partnering with amazing business owners, entrepreneurs, leaders, learning and development specialists and coaches, and people potential professionals from small to large businesses in the mobile and web technologies, interactive entertainment, professional services, retail, hospitality, manufacturing, and non-profit industries.

In September 1999, I co-founded a social enterprise called Enspire Foundation which sponsored the education of 18 students and sent over 60 Canadians to build a library and five homes, part of a larger community project to relocate families from the shanty town of Bagong Silang, Manila to the clean area in Norzagaray, Bulacan, Philippines.

Today, we hold monthly soup kitchens to feed the Vancouver Eastside community. In November 2011, I was ready to take my experience and contribute in a bigger way. I co-founded SPARK Creations & Company Inc., a training and development organization that inspires people and companies to create meaningful cultures and workplaces. We are on a quest to reinstate love at work and at home. Connect with me today at This email address is being protected from spambots.
