This week’s Featured Vancouver Mom lives in Kits with her two little cutie-pies Ella and June, and her rock star husband Will Stroet. She manages Will’s music career and their kids’ entertainment company, Pebble Star Productions as well as taking care of her kids. Will is the star of Will’s Jams on Kids’ CBC and is a regular act at festivals across Canada (see him on the Vancouver Kids Fest stage this May). “It’s an exciting and busy life,” she says, “with challenging bouts of solo-parenting when Will’s on tour!”
