I am a kale-growing, maple-syrup slurping, hockey-playing mom of an adorable pile of small children. My articles have been featured in diverse print publications including Alive, Backpacker, Cottage Life and Z Magazine. My academic background includes a Master of Arts, English and experience as a professional researcher. I've worked in the high-tech production field (digital avatars) and the low-tech production field (sketch comedy for the stage.) I'm an ecologist at heart. My true loves include loons crying out across a still northern lake, a nice  jammy Zinfandel and a spirited debate.
