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, food and family, and my articles have won numerous awards from both Canadian and North American organizations.
Expanding my writing to social media content has been a fun and interesting experience. I'm a bit of a social media junkie, and I recently began a new brand, @the_sensual_self on Instagram. It's a personal look at life after marital breakup and discovering who you are.
I work part-time at an independent lingerie boutique, can bake a killer apple pie, and am finally learning how to play piano.
I'm also mom to two daughters and three guinea pigs.
