I’m a mom with two daughters, a husband, a dog and a cat. I live on a fairly large island surrounded by mountains, the ocean, huge trees and lots of rain. I’m a feminist, counsellor and anti-violence activist; who also plays soccer, is attempting yoga and wants to write. Laughter is my medicine and is only available in community, usually with other women who are funnier than I am but make me feel funny when I’m with them. If I don’t take my medicine I get grumpy and tend to eat too much.
