Registered nurse with an adventurous spirit. British born, but lived in South Africa for 12 years before immigrating to beautiful British Columbia 17 years ago. I now call North Vancouver home.
I live with my husband John and our golden retriever called Juno. Our eldest daughter lives with her husband in the downtown core. Our son lives an hours drive away.
We are both motorcyclists, riding BMW motorcycles, as are our children. We both love to hike the beautiful North Shore mountains and wilderness. I am a road and trail runner, with my next adventure being the Rim to Rim in Arizona. I have already conquered Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. I have also spent 6 days hiking the Grand Canyon last September with my girlfriend's who accompanied me to Tanzania.
Although we are not skiers, we have three wonderful ski resorts 20 minutes from our home and world famous Whistler just 90 minutes away. We much prefer to keep our feet firmly on the ground, therefore prefer to snow shoe as our winter activity.
Although I prefer to run on our beautiful trails, North Vancouver has world class mountain biking trails just 5 minutes away from our home.
Running keeps me sane, it keeps me connect to my girlfriends and is cheaper then counseling! I believe in a healthy work/life balance.
We both love to eat and we have a wonderful social restaurant just 10 minutes walk away at our local village center. North Vancouver has a large range of restaurants. We have great coffee shops and a library within walking distance. We also have a great bus service to the city center from close to our door step.
We both love to travel and had the pleasure of visiting Australia and New Zealand this year for a month.
As our guest, we can give you insider details of the North Shore and how to make the best of your stay with us.
We have a really lovely suite that we would like you to relax in without having to pay the earth for.
