About

Mommy. Blogger. Foodie. Photographer. Curator of an inspired life. Love art, chai lattes and a good book.


I ran a portrait photography studio for about six years and realized over time that there was more I wanted to do with my life.  So I did some honest reflection on what I wanted to bring to the world?  What legacy do I want to leave for my girls? Who am I? Where do I see myself in 5 to 10 years.  What are the things that make me happy? I read a number of books and made quite a few lists. Here are some of the things that stood out…  I want to be a better mom. I want to figure out why we are here and how we can live our lives with purpose. I want to be healthier; physically, mentally and spiritually.  I want to live a life filled with joy and gratitude. I want to raise children that are kind, respect the earth and live with passion.  I also wanted to inspire other people to ask themselves these questions and even help them find some of the answers. This is how What Inspires Me was born.

What inspires me is a curated collection of stories and interviews that I hope will inspire you to live a life filled with joy, passion and purpose.

I currently live in Ajax, Ontario with my techie husband Andre and our daughters Nyla and Malia.
