Hello, my name is Ruth and I was born and raised in Ireland. My dream from the time I was a little girl was to come to Canada and live in the mountains. I grew up skiing and loved the snow-capped mountains and lakes. After working in France and Switzerland, I was invited to work in Canada on a one-year holiday visa. My first location choice was the beautiful Lake Louise, Alberta. It was the place that I had seen pictures of and knew it was where I wanted to be. Life had other plans and I was offered a position at a mountain resort in British Columbia.
When I arrived in Vancouver it was different from the small village in Ireland I grew up in but the people where so friendly and inviting, I felt welcome. I then fell in love with the champagne powder snow, the crisp fresh winters and the warm summers with the lakes, vineyards, and fruits of the Okanagan Valley. What started out as a one year working holiday turned into 10 years as a marketing and events coordinator for the ski resort. I’ve now bought my first house in the sunny Okanagan with views of the lakes and mountains, am a Canadian citizen, and couldn’t be happier. My family in Ireland loves visiting me here!
