What’s a typical day like for you?

I am lucky in that I wake up each day with a “clean slate” type of mood, and am generally happy and optimistic.

My morning runs help me with this, and help me get myself and my kids up and out the door and ready for the day. I work full time providing counselling and therapy to families and clients who are trying to cope with psychiatric changes in later life.

By the time 5 rolls around I get out of my “work door” and back home, to make sure that home life gets attention again.

What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective?

I love the surprises and inspirations that I find there- I like that I notice that I am smiling as I shop. The store is what Goldilocks liked- not too big, not too small, but juuuust right.

What do you have that you want to promote?

I want to promote awareness of counselling and therapy for family caregivers of people who have dementia, through the Reitman Centre at Mount Sinai Hospital where I work. There are so many people who are affected by this disease, and there is still not a saturation of knowledge that there is help around figuring out how to cope with this immense responsibility that is often taken on not by choice but necessity.
