When I was a kid, I always wanted to become a journalist. My dream came true after I graduated from the Journalism – Print program at Centennial College and landed a job as a Reporter/Photographer at The Lindsay Daily Post. A few years later, I moved on to a position as a Lifestyle and Entertainment Reporter at The Barrie Examiner.

For the past 20 years I have worked in marketing and communications but my love of writing has never waned.  And, like many women, I have dealt with self-image and weight issues my whole life, but I have never written about those struggles.

Last year, I lost 20% of my body weight through a health and wellness contest at work, which I won. I taught myself not only how to lose the weight (while going through the merriment of menopause) but how to maintain the weight loss and still enjoy the good things in life.

I look forward to sharing my health and lifestyle knowledge, and my love of all things entertainment, with others through this blog.
