Ericka Ushliyanage, mom of two active and loving boys, entrepreneur, Team Manager and Mortgage Agent with Mortgage Approvals Ottawa. She is a graduate of Carleton University with a degree in Political Science and later completed the Management Development Program for Women with the Sprott School of Business. Her earlier career was focussed in non-profit including time with the YMCA-YWCA where she worked with newcomers to Canada and those in our community seeking help finding employment. She enjoys a new sense of fulfillment now helping her clients to become homeowners, real estate investors and financially sound. Her focus for clients is to educate them on the process and work with them to develop long term plans.
Ericka was a regular volunteer with the Sri Lanka Canada Association of Ottawa for many years and most recently was a board member with FemCity Ottawa Chapter. Her next projects will focus on ways to advocate for women and children leaving domestic abuse and violence in our community.
Recently she has begun her coaching certification program with the Jay Shetty Certification School as part of opening her life coaching consultancy.
She hopes that others use her as an example that despite adversity and the challenges we face, we must always seek to fulfill our dreams no matter how others may respond. Being your best you is the best gift you can give to those around you.
