hawaiiThe Inside Scoop:

If you are anything like me you probably want to know the person behind the bio right? Yep, me too… here’s a few things about my life that you won’t find in my bio.

  • I’m a single mom of 2 girls – Samantha age 9 and Lexi age 7. They are lively, smart and stubborn (just like their mama, ahem.)
  • I divorced in 2013 after almost 12 years of marriage – an amicable split that allowed both me and my ex-spouse to live fully in the TRUTH of who we are.
  • I’m Canadian, born and raised in Alberta – Yes, I’m polite and laid back, but I can kick-butt when I want to!
  • I read every single day – voraciously. Mostly fiction but I do enjoy the occasional business book as well (so long as it’s not boring!)
  • I was almost an accountant – my first job after getting my biz degree in 1994 was an accounts payable clerk. I love numbers but after taking a tax class I knew it wasn’t for me (seriously, have you ever tried to read the tax code?)
  • My first daughter was born at home – we had a natural homebirth with a midwife. Painful? Yes, but I did it on my terms!
  • I don’t really work that hard (shhh, don’t tell!) – I love my business but truth be told I love my free time more. You are more likely to find me outside my office than in. 😉

Phew! Busy times indeed, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 😉
