We are thrilled to introduce the newest member of our BIA Board of Directors team, Violet, the visionary behind Yellowdoor Selfcare Studio in Downtown Oakville. Violet will take on the role of Board Treasurer. With over two decades of experience in the financial services industry, where she held leadership roles with a keen business-risk focus, Violet brings a wealth of strategic insight to our team.
Violet's journey towards holistic wellness and rejuvenation began after a breast cancer diagnosis in 2013. A solo trip to South America opened her eyes to the power of community and connection, inspiring her to recreate that essence back in Canada. The result: Yellowdoor, a wellness studio that seamlessly blends spa and holistic services.
Growth, be it personal or professional, can take us in unexpected directions. Yellowdoor is the pursuit of something better - another chance at creating something true. Yellowdoor opened on Mother's Day in 2018. With the help of her sister Anna, they had envisioned and created a space for people from all walks of life to come together, share stories, and embrace mutual experiences.
Born in Korea and having lived in Paraguay before making Canada her home, Violet's diverse background enriches her perspective. With a Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto and an MBA from Ivey, Western University, she embodies a passion for pushing boundaries and exploring both inner and outer worlds.
When not contributing to the vibrancy of Downtown Oakville, you'll find Violet embarking on adventures worldwide in her campervan.
Join us in extending a warm welcome to Violet as she brings her unique blend of experiences and insights to our board!
