I live with my husband and two boys in my hometown of Vancouver, BC. I love to travel and discover the wonders our planet has in store for us. I live by the Golden Rule and by the motto of leaving a place better than when I arrived. I've travelled extensively in Europe and enjoy connecting with people through music, art, canoeing, hiking, bicycling, and eating. I enjoy hosting people in our great home city Vancouver and allowing them a comfortable home base from which to discover our region.
