About

 

I have been a professional writer for over a decade. Prior to that, I worked in investment banking and management consulting, and was the Executive Director of a children’s museum. I’ve also run the training department of a Fortune 500 Canadian subsidiary and worked as an executive recruiter. I have an MBA in finance from Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto. I also have a BA in English and Classics from the University of Toronto, so, yes, I’ve read all of Shakespeare.

As the author of the pioneering mommy blogs T. O. Mama and MUBAR, I wrote about taboos such as fertility treatments, post-partum depression, maternal ambivalence, and why it’s so hard to get a coffee already when wielding a double stroller. They made a documentary that captured my experience. Sadly, I was played by an actress, thus thwarting my life-long desire to appear on reality tv. She’s the one in the pink bathrobe. She also appeared on Scandal, which I think is pretty cool.

I’ve blogged for See Hear Love, 1010ParkPlace.com and The Huffington Post. I love to write about spirituality, midlife change, style, over-40 beauty, reality TV (RHONY: you are my spirit animals!), anxiety, self-care and books. I’m currently at work on a novel about leafy suburbia. Think Touched by an Angel meets The Real Housewives. Oh, and sometimes I’m on TV.

I wrote a fun little business book called Engage the Fox. I’m also verified to administer and interpret a variety of personality-based testing tools such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Reach out if you want to talk type.

I appreciate every reader and I love to hear from y’all. Email me if you want to connect!
