About Me

I am an experienced lifestyle writer with 15 years worth of fashion and parenting articles for top Canadian media outlets, under my belt.
I also write persuasive press releases for brands in the lifestyle, food and fashion industries including Zonin, Geox, and Danone, to name a few.
I’ve been blogging since 2012 under the moniker and have recently started a joint influencer project called where I create, write, and produce social content and videos about fashion, recipes, and the best places to visit in Hamilton and beyond.
Most recently I have enjoyed working as the producer and researcher on a monthly parenting and youth development podcast called for Muskoka Woods.
