“Sex with Dr. Jess” Bachelorette: Lili!
Lili is a busy entrepreneur in health, wellness & the arts. She is adamant about energy work and only pursuing the things she loves in life. She is grateful to have been on the TV series Suits since it started, being surrounded by such talented and fun co-workers and friends. Beyond that, she does light work in the form of her custom semi-precious gemstone jewelry line Lili Om Jewelry, which she handcrafts with a mantra of positive intention she based from the ideas she learned while on a life-changing Shamanic journey in Tulum, MX last year.
She is beginning her training as a Reiki practitioner, which will go along with her practice of “saging” homes and properties with stagnant energies. She is also busy developing an organic juicing & health food company. She hasn’t always been into alternative thinking having grown up highly focused on academia, dancing, running track, and earning her Kinesiology degree. But it was an epiphany while juggling these activities that made her realize how precious every moment of life is, and that it is never worth being too busy to appreciate every minute. She made a vow to herself than to not ever get too stressed about anything that would make her moments fleeting – and has never looked back! Lili then went on to do much traveling and living in the US and Caribbean but has since settled back in Toronto to bring together all of the experiences she is extremely grateful to have had, and to share her message on a larger scale.
Being content in her lifestyle, Lili values kindness and mindfulness and would welcome someone to share in her journey of life. Someone who would inspire her and together they would build on their ideas of a healthy lifestyle with positive intention and to share it with others synergistically. Namaste!

Things I’m passionate about: Opening people up to being free and present and being a messenger for positivity. I’m also very passionate about nutrition and physical activity.
My ideal first date would be: Something fun and exhilarating that we could experience together, and have lots of laughter and connections.
People say that I am: Hmm…. I suppose I am often told I am sweet and motivated…although it’s hard to answer that about myself :s
My ideal partner is: Someone inspiring, kind and mindful. Someone who is also very real and open to spirituality and passionate about health and fitness – a corporate professional who can complement me too.
Dating deal breakers: As funny as it seems (I have a degree in Kinesiology) so – bad posture!; And poor self-talk.
I’m not bragging but I: Make really yummy gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free foods and desserts:)
A talent that may surprise you: I am a national hip hop dance champ. Yes yes
