AT FORTY FIVE MAGAZINE /15 make art. I am most satisfied when I am in a flow state which means creating or playing sports. The most rewarding aspect of my journey is understanding how to allow myself to do that. What has been a barrier that you have overcome? Time management is one of my biggest obstacles. I tend to rank other chores and people's needs above my need to create. I find it hard to make myself a priority and create boundaries around what I need. Putting myself first is a constant battle. I now know that the secret to success is that I must keep creating but there's this constant pull between what else is in my life and what else needs to be done. What is something surprising about you that most people don’t know? A surprising fact about me is that I am the lead volleyball coach in the hybrid volleyball/basketball academy at Saint Thomas Aquinas Regional Secondary School. I have been coaching volleyball since 1998 thanks to my husband. What do you need to make more room in your life for? I need to make room for connecting with my friends. With COVID, I have had to reach out and initiate contact, you can’t wait for someone to come to you. Also, I would love to learn how to do bronze or resin casting and windsurfing.

If I could meet anyone for lunch it would be my father. He died in 1999 from cancer. We have a lot to catch up on. What was the best advice you ever received? My father told me that when I met the right person you will know. What the heck does that mean!! Well, when I met my husband “I KNEW”. Twenty-one years and two boys later he is still my best friend.
