|Amy Woods, Funeral Director - Apprentice|
I am a dreamer. A dancer. A mother. I am redefining. I am trying to take all the things I have learned and become and transform them into something fulfilling and purposeful. To find out where I can be of value. Helping people navigate loss and co creating the choices that have to be made during this difficult time feels natural to me. So does making it meaningful.
|Valeria Ingo, Administrator|
I was born and raised in the beautiful island of Sicily. I have a masters degree in Euro-American Languages and Literature from the University of Palermo. I met my husband, a Vancouverite, in 2012 while teaching Italian in the French city of Grenoble. I quickly relocated with him to Vancouver and shortly thereafter began working at the Italian Cultural Centre. I love coming up with interesting and novel ways to share the Italian language and culture with interested people.
