I am passionate about food and cooking and wanted to take it to the next level of applying its qualities of nourishment, healing and daily health.
I am a creative person that loves working with my hands. I was an artist and created ceramic and mixed media sculpture (as a welder) and I always played in the kitchen baking cookies, experimenting with foods as a kid or being on a diet of some form or another. I’ve extended that love of cooking to creating recipes and meals and developed MEAL STIX and fermented foods that you can buy here online.
I’ve had several careers in the arts and culture sector as an artist, arts administrator and executive director. In the 1970’s and 80’s, I lived in Boston and New York City over 11 years and returned to Toronto, Canada and married my husband Jan-Willem from the Netherlands. We have two handsome sons now in their 20’s currently living in Canada and a dog Knuckles whom we’re all crazy about. I love to swim, take long walks with my dog, hang out with friends and I’ve been part of a book club with the same group of women for 27 years.
I am a dedicated volunteer at Rocksteady Boxing Toronto, a non-profit group located in Toronto and in different cities across United States and Canada that gives people with Parkinson’s disease hope by improving their quality of life through a non-contact boxing-based curriculum.
