I was raised by three strong and unique women. My mother and both of my grandmothers each brought out different strengths in me. From that foundation, I have grown into a life filled with projects about what it means to be a woman. I have had the opportunity to work with many incredible women. I also raise my own little woman. All of these things have given me a passion for empowering, encouraging, and building up communities of women near and far.
Over the years, I have struggled to claim this title as my own. It felt too precious, too Big for what I do. But I have come to accept that that's the point: I am because I do. My nature and my intellect allow me to craft feelings, experiences, and meaning into words on a page. I continually seek connections and opportunities to give ideas life, and in so doing, my soul is sparked.
An East Coaster
Nova Scotia is my home - the anchor point when trials rise around me. There is salt in my veins and ocean air in my lungs. My family thrives here, and I am grateful to draw upon its inspiration in all that I do.
A Book Dragon
Stories in general are my thing, but it all started with reading. Every period in my life is linked to a good book... I grew as the stories did, to understand and feel at home in the person I am becoming. I continue to search for authors and stories that tap into specific parts of myself, whether they be breakneck pace, tense mysteries or creative manifestos or journeys into living authentically.
Food and I have had an interesting relationship.
Either way, I have found joy in learning what food can do for our bodies, how it interacts with our individual body chemistry differently, how pairing food and drink together can create such a beautiful experience and how sharing food together can be some of the most bonding and deep times shared. Ultimately, I am a sucker for a tasty dish, a paired drink that compliments it and good conversation.
