Introducing SIETAR BC Board - Anu Pala

Anu Pala

SIETAR BC Board Member

Anu Pala is a certified life coach and vocational consultant. She has worked in the social services field for over twenty years in the areas of career development, program coordination, vision loss rehabilitation, technology training, and event coordination. Anu has also worked on various media and public relations initiatives including radio broadcasting, freelance writing, public speaking, and media coordination for fund raising events. 


In 1991, Anu lost her vision due to a retinal detachment. Despite this setback, she has not allowed it to define her, but rather uses it to fuel her towards meaningful work-to inspire, motivate and empower others to maximize their potential and opportunities and work towards living a positive and meaningful life.


Through her personal and professional experiences, Anu has helped immigrants and refugees settle in Canada, connect to community resources, and obtain employment. As an ethnic woman living with vision loss, Anu values diversity, inclusion, and equality for all.  Anu is currently pursuing her undergraduate degree in professional communications at Royal Roads University. Anu’s philosophy is to experience life with enthusiasm, positivity and a glass half-full attitude.


When she is away from the computer, she enjoys baking, spending quality time with family and friends, and travelling.
