From an early age, I always wanted to be a writer. When I first saw my name in print in a personalized storybook, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up.

Life is funny and after exploring the world of digital project management, social media marketing and community management, I found my way back to the world of content strategy, writing and promotion. The younger version of me would be thrilled!

B2B and B2C - I've worked on it all and for clients ranging from young and scrappy startups thorough to established global brands with a major presence.

From whitepapers to infographics, fully-optimized web copy to technical specifications - I've had my hands on content at every stage of it's development. I'm passionate about the power of words to instruct, entertain, excite and evoke action.

My spiritual side

A big part of my life is Buddhism. It manifests itself pretty indirectly and most people can't tell. Look at the photo of me above and see if you can tell. You can't can you? Looook clooooserrr... Into my eyes.

I've spent lots of time sitting and studying with both the Shambhala and Nalandabodhi Buddhist communities which are great places where I've been learning how to slow down, breathe and cultivate awareness, compassion and kindness.

I've facilitated a series of introductory meditation classes for Nalandabodhi as well as have volunteered my time in providing communications and social media assistance both for the organization as well as for the promotion of 'Rebel Buddha', a book written by Ponlop Rinpoche.

I've been blogging about Buddhism since 2006 and have had several book reviews published on the Shambhala Sun Space and a submission posted for the Under 35 project. I also was a judge for the Bloggisattva Awards celebrating Buddhabloggers world-wide.

In 2015, I edited a book titled Lotus Petals in the Snow: Voices of Canadian Buddhist Women.
