I am a poet, writer, and creative, first and foremost. I also believe that love is the most important thing we can give to the world, in creative form, relationship, or other. My Honours Degree is in Psychology, and I have a Master of Arts (Creative Writing/English Literature), and my passion lies within creative and artistic expression, as well as humanness, community living, and most of all, a love for all things divine. I care very much about mental health, self-care, trauma-healing, and living in the present moment (mindfulness). These come together in my love of writing and photography, my blog, and my writing facilitation in the Body, Mind and Soul Online Retreat for Moms. I also live in a community house with those who are struggling with mental health, poverty, addictions, trauma and more, and this has been a core transforming, hard, and joyful part of my life.
Finally, as a writer, poet, photographer, and Librarian, my life emerges from a love of words, language, symbols, and story, and the way that healing and courage can rise through our own personal narratives, and where our own narrative meets the world’s narrative. I have a published chapbook called Where the Back Roads Take You and am working on a full-length manuscript. I have a thousand questions and no answers, so please join me in my desire to understand more deeply how the light and love in our world can shine brighter and brighter.
