​Born in 1978 into a Zambian Gujarati-Indian family, I'm equally proud to be Canadian since 1992, settling in Port Moody. Alongside my husband, I've raised two children and co-founded Lightfoot Construction Ltd. Formerly in jewelry design, I now teach Yoga & Metta/Mindfulness Meditation at two local studios. Dedicated to community upliftment, I co-founded Nourish Charitable Society, helped restore the old College Park Community Association, and founded Barter BC. Active in education, I volunteered with local PACs and coached Odyssey of the Mind teams. I advocate for local arts and am pursuing further education in Yoga Therapy and Wellness Counselling. As a candidate for Director at Large at PoMoArts, I aim to enhance cultural vibrancy and inclusivity, leveraging my philanthropic experience.
