I work as a Cultural Facilities Manager for a municipality in the Capital Region. Chronic Illness, CFS/FMS, is my constant companion. I am a writer, mom, post parteum depression survivor, and life lover – my glass is rarely anything less than half full.
Nominated for YMCA Women of Distinction, Arts and Culture, in 2012.
I have a BFA in Technical Theatre Production. I am working on a certificate in Occupational Health and Safety and have my Incident Command Training level 300 training. I am working to develop strong, empathetic, compassionate, adventurous and nurturing offspring. I’ve written for Edmonton’s Child and Fort Saskatchewan Record. I taught social media for business in collaboration with the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce.
What you can hire me (and the kids) for:
Try your product. Play with your toy. Wear your clothes. Eat your food. Visit your event. We will write, tweet, and Facebook about our experience.
From the Raising Edmonton website “Top 5 blogs to follow“: The Undad brings that Dad perspective, with posts that are relatable, and make me say “hmm”. We like reading his perspective in the adventure of raising a young kid.
I am a professional journalist, writer, performer, podcaster, and wilderness canoe guide.
