Have you ever thought what it might be like to leave behind everything you’ve grown up with and dive into the complete unknown? That was the exhilarating, frightening, and rewarding path I took in 2009. Born and raised in Southwest Edmonton, and having lived here my entire life, I decided to resign from my job, get rid of pretty much everything I couldn’t fit into three suitcases, and move to the Philippines.
My travels had led me to amazing places in over forty counties from Barcelona to Boston, Tokyo to Tyumen, Kazakhstan to Kuwait, Indonesia to Israel and beyond. But what was it like to Liv overseas? That’s where the Philippines came in – a place to explore a different culture, lifestyle, and business environment. Manila gave me a beautiful family and a ton of new perspective, but after running a successful recruitment and deployment consultancy, and investing in the residential property market, my family and I decided Edmonton was the place to be – the other city that has given me so much.
Becoming a REALTOR® after returning home was a natural fit, combining my knowledge of Edmonton’s property market, the love of advocacy I learned through my degree from the University of Alberta Faculty of Law, and the practical negotiation skills honed during my fifteen-year career with the Alberta government.

My husband and I really loved to work with Liv Real Estate®, specially with Beverley Hasinoff.
