Writing

I love to write. I love it so much that I assumed there was no way I could do it for a living. I know it sounds like an oxymoron, but it is truly hard to imagine you can be paid to do something that made you happy when you were a child. In fact, I have a strong memory of being bummed when I was 9 years old. When my grandmother asked me what was wrong, I declared, “I am almost ten and I haven’t written my novel yet.”

Precocious much?

I now have written for many amazing websites and print magazines, including Food Network Canada, USA Today, Cottage Life, EmpowHER, MindBodyGreen and others. I also write newsletters for health or travel related publications. In my free time, I take writing classes because that is what you do when you have a passion. You go kind of crazy for it.

Here are some of my published articles (which feels like the modern equivalent of putting your finger painting on the fridge). I am always excited to discuss new writing opportunities, or to speak to new writers who are wondering how to get started. I might even have you guest post the blog!
