Hey! Welcome to my website. Glad you stopped by and decided you wanted to know more about me.
I’m Veronica Buna.
I am committed to respect, integrity and confidence.
My mission is to motivate and empower people to be themselves, live with integrity and to love life!
I am committed to seeing that people who have suffered from not knowing who they are instead experience clarity and confidence to stand up and be acknowledged. I am to creating space for people to say what they need to say and therefore feel heard and seen.
I blog, I wrote a book, I facilitate workshops and I coach.

For as long as I can remember I have been doing work in the realm of personal development. No seriously it’s the only world I’ve ever really known.
My amazing parents; Stephen and Nadia Buna, constantly challenged me to look at myself and how I was creating the world around me.
I have been involved with leadership and training programs since I was 11 years old. I won the student council award in my graduating year, 2002, from John Rennie High School in Pointe-Claire, QC; walk down the main hallway- my name is on a plaque!
That being said high school was a turning point for me.
I learned, within the first few years, that the bigger I played my game or shone my light the less likely I would be to fit in or have friends. I began to dim. Eventually I could not handle it anymore. I was living so out of integrity for me and I hated it. I decided to step back into my power and friends be damned.
Funny thing was that as soon as I made that commitment to myself my real friends showed up. The friends that I still talk to today!
I graduated from Concordia University in 2007 with a BA Specialization in Communication Studies. I was going to work in PR and advertising. That is until I finished school. I realized that I did not want an office job. I took a year off and went to work for Disney Cruise Line in the recreation department.
During my vacations from the ship I attended a few courses with Peak Potentials Training. I fell in love with their programs and accelerated learning style of teaching.
Since then I have attend over a dozen courses, volunteered at several more and worked as a member of their on-site logistics team and as an Assistant Trainer. I am a Heart Virtue expert and trainer. I facilitate the “Unlock Your Heart Virtue” workshop with adults and teens. I have also taken on the role of teaching others to become Heart Virtue Experts.
I wrote “S-E-X: How did YOU learn to spell it?” in ten days in March 0f 2012. I published it January 2014 and am creating conscious conversations about sex everywhere I go.
Oh one more thing… my family started our own company in 2010! EPIC-U: empowering passion, integrity and confidence. EPIC-U is an event hosting and training company currently based in Montreal. I am a facilitator and the communications director for EPIC-U as well.
If you have actually made it all the way to this point and are seriously still reading I am impressed and thankful. I did not anticipate that it would take this long to write about who I am and what I do. Thanks for being curious!
