Always weird to talk about yourself but here it goes.

My name is Vanja (pronounced Vanya).

I am a proud Catholic, a wife and a mama to two beautiful little humans.

I am a war child and have come to call Canada home after immigrating here in the mid 1990s following our escape from war-torn Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

By day (when not on mat leave and raising babies) I am the Brand and External Communications leader for one of Canada’s largest accounting firms.

By night and in my daydreams, I am an aspiring interior designer and stylist, and one day when I win the lotto, it will be my full time job. Until then…
