I'm married to Peter, mother of three beautiful daughters: Lindsey, Kate and Sara. I live in a gorgeous city on the north shore of Vancouver, Canada, and we have access to xc skiing, hiking, the ocean, all within 15-30 minutes. I work in teacher education at UBC having taught for 30+ years. I've taught all grades except the very very young ones. I have lived and worked in a variety of beautiful areas, and throughout my career, I've been priviliged to work primarily in Aboriginal education. My husband Peter is a social worker, and he, too, works with Aboriginal health. He's originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, but he's in love with BC. We're very friendly and open people, and we love to travel. We're both very active and enjoy the outdoors and mother nature. Our daughter Sara is 12, and she's travelling with us these days, as Lindsey and Kate are both young adults and living away from home.
