I’m Kama, which means love in Sanskrit. I’m a mom, wife, teacher and blogger with a passion for social good and motherhood. When our family has free time, you can catch us eating at local restaurants, learning about history at museums, or browsing fresh produce and handmade goods at farmer’s markets. Want to know more?

So how did all this get started? Just a few years ago, my son and I were living in Port Alberni and I was trying to make ends meet as a single mom. I needed a second job. At the same time, I was hired to manage social media accounts for the City, then the Chamber of Commerce, and Member of the Legislative Assembly. I learned an arsenal of new skills such as making campaigns go viral, growing organic engaged audiences, and creating calls to action that convert. I enjoyed this new role immensely, and it proved to be a highly profitable way to top up my teaching income.
Well, I fell in love and we moved to Surrey BC. All of my contracts reached their natural conclusion when I moved away to the mainland. Without any connections here, I decided to learn some new skills and start my own thing as a blogger.
Now, during the day, I’m a full-time teacher of English + Art as well as an Aboriginal Advocate. On the evenings and weekends, I create content for lifestyle brands and destinations as we share our family’s life and adventures together.
I’m mostly known for being a community-minded teacher, influential storyteller, and relatable working mom. For this, I’ve been honoured with: UNICEF BC Teacher of the Year, Vancouver Island’s 20 Under 40 Business and Community Achievement Award, and as Vancouver Mom Top 30 Blogger.
What makes me jump out of bed each morning? Well, it’s having the chance to help people come up with a future story, and the plan and skills to make it happen. I’m most passionate about amplifying the voice of brands and community organizations who make our world a better place through local + global action.
