who I am and what I offer…
One of Canada’s Top Influencers since 2010 — I’m a seasoned family/lifestyle blogger, freelance writer and published author working with brands ranging from LG, OPI to Staples, and Netflix. Listed as one of Vancouver’s top 30 bloggers and brand ambassadors, I’m passionate about family, people, beauty, entertainment, blogging, parenting, and disabilities.
Each brand I’ve worked with is chosen carefully. My focus is to connect consumers with brand information in a meaningful, honest, and authentic way. I love writing and sharing articles that help others, whether it’s learning how to make your own harvest table, to advice on how to entertain on a budget. We are all in this life together.
I’m actively involved in Social Media Campaigns & Brand Awareness, along with being a caregiver and advocate for Traumatic Brain Injuries and Mental Illnesses.
It’s important to me that the information I share helps to engage, teach and entertain my readers with informative articles, news stories, tips for the home, entertainment and products for everyday family life.
freelance publishing credits include:
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Love Stories
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Divorce & Recovery

Mom Talk Radio
In 2013 I was invited to be an ambassador and team leader for The Bloggers & Brands Conference in Vancouver and I have been nominated 3 years running for CWA’s best parenting, best lifestyle and best-designed blog.
I’ve been playing with words as a freelance writer since 2004. In 2010, I turned to the world of blogging as a way to connect to other while raising my young son with special needs and being a caregiver to my husband with disabilities. I quickly launched myself as a consumer specialist in brand awareness, working with over 500 + brands worldwide.
