I’m the gal next door giving it to you real, no holds bar, and you love me for it.
I’ve studied Art & Design at OCAD in Toronto ON, and Advertising at Loyalist College. I’ve lived and worked all over Canada including Whitehorse YT, all over Alberta and all throughout Ontario, doing everything from pumping gas in high school, selling pools and hot tubs in college to eventually joining the creative team for a company that makes sports supplements and all natural libido enhancements. It’s been a wild ride.
My time away from work is mostly spent with my partner of 10+ years enjoying our community in eastern Ontario with our 2 children; The Dude and Miss D. They are a rambunctious pair that keeps us on our toes. As special needs parents to a boy with Autism, we strive daily to live our lives to their fullest and not allow labels to define our expectations. We find ways instead to make things work.
My respite from the strains of special needs parenting and the stresses of work include dancing until my feet are sore with the girls, travel adventures both big or small and when spontaneity allows, meeting up after work for drinks and some laughs with good friends.
I also have a dog. Her name is Gracie.
