I was a weird kid who liked to write music and poetry, and spent most of my childhood reading books and playing outside. Not much has changed. I describe myself as a radical self love warrior. I use the creative arts to help women heal their relationships with their bodies and recover from abuse trauma. I live in beautiful Port Moody with my husband and two little monsters Gabe and Gavin, and I am currently writing my second children’s book, Princess Monsters from 1 to 10.
Caffe Divano bakes all their goodies on site, including their amazing pies (strawberry, ginger, peach is my favourite), which they serve a la mode with Rocky Point ice cream. If I want to sit and enjoy my coffee, I bring mini board games or play dough to keep the kids entertained.
Community craft studio and nerdy art shop featuring local artists. I live in a house of Star Wars geeks, so this place is a dream!
This Port Moody sushi restaurant is the place we eat out most with the kids. I love their baked salmon roll!
