I have always loved language. Reading. Writing. The spoken word. I process thoughts and feelings through journaling; I learn best and stay organized by writing things down; and I communicate most effectively with others through writing. I can't not write. To me, it's magic.
Stories are everywhere, and I feel honoured when someone shares their story with me. I'm passionate about stories of service, community-building, women & small biz, and disruptive tech, and my articles have won numerous awards from both Canadian and North American organizations. My writing has taken me around the world and I've had the privilege to meet many inspiring people.
About three years ago, I decided to do something entirely different. I reached out to a local independent lingerie boutique and began a side gig in retail! I love connecting with people, solving their problems, and helping them feel good about themselves. It's also taught me tonnes about selling, and I write the brand's social media posts plus take many of the photos.
