I’m a feminist, writer, blogger (I guess that goes without saying…), editor, speaker, PR professional, communications coach, life coach, Canadian resident/global citizen, wannabe geek, humble traveler, sometime rabble-rouser, occasional triathlete, infrequent nude model, and self-proclaimed amazing woman.
I’m passionate about freedom, fun, and pink, as well as for excellence in all types of communications (written and spoken).
Part of my overall purpose in life is to inspire others (especially women) to find their voices and make them heard personally and professionally. New mini- and micro-purposes arise regularly from that, and I pursue various creative ventures as they bubble to the surface of my life.
I lived in the United Arab Emirates for 18 years and love to travel. I returned to Canada in late 2011 to care for my Mom Pinkie Patti, who has Alzheimer’s disease. More about that journey here. At the moment, I’m a global nomad with a “pied a terre” in Quebec’s Eastern Townships.
I created and curate Amazing Women Rock, SheQuotes and My Alzheimer’s Story (my Mom Patti was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2008; more on that story here). I help people with public speaking, writing and editing, and I’m also going a little crazy (in a good way).
