Keeping Up With Kardish: Get To Know Victoria
24-year-old Victoria Laforty Cirne has been assistant manager at Kardish’s barrhaven location for just over three months.
The Brockville native moved to Ottawa three years ago. She has family here, and began working at Kardish in February. Right before joining the Kardish team, Victoria decided to give vegetarianism a try.
Initially, she made the switch for environmental reasons, but says that she has also seen a big improvement in both hers, and her partners health (he too went vegetarian).
Victoria says working at Kardish has been equally lovely as it has been educational. She now understands a lot better what supplements to incorporate into her diet to compensate for cutting out meat.
And, she says she feels deeply valued at work, always learning new things—even from her customers.
And then there’s the products. Her favourite additions to her daily routine are the J?SÖN sulfate-free tea tree and aloe vera shampoo and conditioner. She says both her scalp and hair have greatly benefited from the switch to the all natural hair care line.
Victoria says she stays healthy by going for walks, and biking! As for her meals. She loves (and recommends) soup!
Her go-to basics for almost all her soups are:
- Garlic, ginger, and onions (staples that empower the immune system)
- Spices such as curry (to give it lots of flavor)
- Tumeria (a natural anti-inflammatory)
- Veggies of all kinds - the latest soup: peas, spinach and carrots
Victoria says that she’s got a busy social life, but since facing the pandemic, she did her part to stay home, instead opting to take up art again. Her latest projects are painting kitchen counter mason jars!
A jar that Victoria decorated. She’s been taking up art since COVID-19 took hold of everyone’s activities.
