Far far away, in the rising mountains where a river runs wild a young nature lover was born. As a child, loving the environment was natural to me. I loved exploring the great outdoors. As an adolescent and young adult, I was enthusiastic for life, savoured new experiences and was a bit impulsive and rebellious. As a child of the 70's, a free spirit, I enjoyed blazing new trails, the offbeat and the risky.
As an adult and a mother, the romance with nature has grown with my family; we love exploring the outdoors, camping trips, outdoor sports, hiking trails or just watching the sunrise and set. Now that the children are grown with kids of their own, we still enjoy that wonderful connection—we are nature enthusiasts.
I am a photography enthusiast, a visual storyteller focusing on nature, wildlife, landscapes, people and the places I travel to. At any given moment, I am either dreaming of places I would like to visit or planning a road trip that will inspire a story. I am passionate about photography and the power and importance that creativity holds in our daily lives.
I am a mom to three wonderful grown children and grandma to two. And have had two very special dogs that shared my life and adventures. After their passing...I adopted a very special rescue who is now my adventure and travel companion. I recently retired from my position providing mental health services and support to those in need, a job I loved. I have downsized my life for fulltime travel and work across Canada. At the present time I am living and working in beautiful Alberta.
The fewest words that would best describe who I am would be that I believe in the goodness of people and the biggest question I ask myself each day is “How can I make a difference, and did I?”
My hope is that the things I share will inspire you to reach for your dreams even in difficult times, sometimes the challenges and struggles we face in our lives are exactly what we need at that moment. I know this because I am a proud survivor. I am also an optimist and a dreamer. “I choose to live with hope and the belief in possibilities through the wide-eyed magic of ‘What-If’…because what-if we can all make a difference?”
Thanks for joining me on this adventure!
The world is an amazing place—let’s go exploring.
