Shari will bring a unique perspective to our board, which will help us increase our brand awareness and market share.”

In addition to her award-winning career and unparalleled impact in the real estate industry,
Shari works with Dr. Jayanath Abeywickrama, a Sri Lankan Ayurvedic physician, spiritual healer, teacher, and author.
Her own life was deeply impacted when she visited Sri Lanka and met poverty-stricken farmers who were desperately trying to grow rice with the wisdom of their ancestors (without the use of chemicals and harmful fertilizers) in order to save the lives of their families. This led to the idea and establishment of the non-profit, Hela Bima World which brings awareness to the importance of nature-friendly, wholesome food and the value of human life. Today, farmers are slowly making headway - seeing a path out of poverty, saving and changing lives in villages and communities across the nation. They are now distributing their rice in top grocery chains, and educating children about the importance of living healthy lives. Hela Bima World is the umbrella for Rankema Healing Wisdom which hosts the Rankema World Summit that provides the opportunity for self-discovery and self-realization to bring about JOY, HEALTH and SUCCESS for all lives.
Collectively, it is her life's purpose to serve, support, and expand peoples’ consciousness to live a better life and make a difference for all human beings in a very complicated world. The cycle of abundance thrives in Shari’s life where she believes everything is possible.
