When I first saw The Reflection Issue of the CV Collective in hard copy, I was thrilled and a tad bit nervous. As guest editor for the this fall 2016 issue, I worked with the CVC team and 20 writers to help produce a magazine that reflects and embodies the spirit of the Collective, which is to Create, […]

The Chamber […]
I’ve been a Sociable Scientist for over three years! As the business continues to grow and evolve, we are updating the website and continuing to reflect on what we need to create, preserve, accept, & eliminate (thank you Marshall Goldsmith); what we’re doing well and what we need to work on.

Vancouver Island Leisure Profiles
I’ve said it before and I will say it again: I love #VancouverIsland!! I feel absolutely blessed to be living in a community that offers so much diversity and supports my health and well being in ways that truly matter.
