Rehab Rivers is of Somali roots and was born in Aden, Yemen. Her friends know her as “Kiki”. She was born into the revered Shariff family, and enjoyed the changes of her nomadic life; a lifestyle common in her region. Having resided in Yemen, UAE, India, and the United States, her family finally decided to immigrate to Toronto, Canada, in 1989. Always a seeker of knowledge and truth, she went on a profound spiritual journey, exploring many religions as a teenager. Her aspirations of pursuing medicine were put aside to join the workforce, and later raise a family. The lessons she learned as a child about welcoming change were put to the test when her sixteen-year marriage ended with a tragic separation. The entry of a certain healer into Rehab’s life triggered her creativity. Rehab has spent the past fourteen years enjoying a career as a flight attendant. She currently lives in Toronto with her two angels, Ethan and Hana.
