Originally from Edmonton, Canada (via Calgary), I moved to Copenhagen, Denmark in 2014. Since we were clearly getting too much warm weather and light in Scandinavia, in January 2019 we moved to the real north in Anchorage, Alaska, USA and have been here ever since.

In my life I have been a teacher, professional volunteer, event organizer, and travel planner extra-ordinaire. I have two boys, a husband, a million books, and a dog (not necessarily in that order).

I am an adult onset Type 1 Diabetic – yes, we exist – and have recently started using an insulin pump I call Bioncé P (for Bionic Pancreas). We are still working on boundaries in our relationship. Sometimes I might write about this experience.

You’ll find posts reflecting on teaching and the daily life of parenting, the experience of living away from home, traveling (or staying home during the pandemic), getting outside (even if there are bears), all things kites, and I am certain we will end Somewhere from Here.

People who know me well know that you can only believe 50% of a third of what I say 9 out of 10 times.  Except for all the times you can’t.
