I seem to have been bit by the curiosity bug early in life. Lucky for me, I have the kind of job where I can travel, meet new people, experience different things and write about it.

My by-line has appeared in over 60 publications, on topics spanning everything from business and health, to food and travel.

Photography is also a passion of mine. By looking at the world through my 10×15 cm viewfinder, I observe and “see” in a different way, and love to document my trips, the places I’ve been, and the people I’ve met.

In the realm of travel writing, I especially enjoy getting off the beaten track.

I’ve swum with nursing sharks off the coast of Belize, danced with the Bedouins in Jordan, eaten my way across Wales, roamed the streets of Hanoi, and hiked part of the Appalachian trail in Newfoundland … to name a few.

The fact that Atlantic Canada is in my own back yard is a bonus for me. It’s made up for four unique provinces: Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland & Labrador, and I’ve travelled extensively to each in pursuit of meeting people, having adventures and discovering “story.”

I contribute content and photos about Atlantic Canada to several guide books, and am considered to be the go-to person when people are looking for content (or advice on where to travel) specific to this region.

I live with my husband, Barrie MacGregor in a home that’s off the grid (which we built ourselves!) on the TusketRiver, in Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia.

In my spare time, you can find me paddling in the wilderness or doing Tai Chi.
