With Christmas now just behind us, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the holiday season. For me, Christmas has always been about giving and this year was no different. Just before Santa and his reindeer left the North Pole and started delivering gifts, I headed over to the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton to do some giving of my own, and it sure felt good!
I credit the Stollery for playing a huge role in saving the life of my son Lennox. They are an amazing institution and I know so many other parents whose children have benefitted greatly from the incredible work they do every single day. I’m so grateful for what they have done for my family, and I try to give back in any way I can. This year, I started with a delivery of little stuffed tiger bears for dozens of the children currently receiving care at the hospital. I also presented the Stollery with a cheque for $8,000.
While this donation is incredibly important to me, I couldn’t have done it without the support of my amazing clients across Sherwood Park, Strathcona County and Edmonton. Everyday I feel honoured that you have chosen me to be your REALTOR® and I’m so thankful for what you’ve allowed me to do.
Enjoy the rest of your holidays and have a safe and prosperous New Year!

I’m a big believer in bucket lists. Everyone should have goals and dreams to strive for, whether they are travelling to a new country, achieving a career goal, conquering a marathon, learning a new language, seeing their favourite band in concert or mastering a certain dish. Goals and bucket lists are what keep us going, keep us pushing to do what makes us happy and drive us to live a full and exciting life!
One of the things on my bucket list is to see the world, which I’m slowly doing, one trip at a time. I just got back from the some of the best beaches in the world, the ones that wrap around Honolulu, Hawaii. It was an amazing trip and I couldn’t have asked for anything better than spending 10 days with my family in one of the world’s most beautiful spots. And although I love Sherwood Park, I must say that getting away from the freezing cold we had here was definitely a favourable thing to do! Honolulu was +28 the entire time we were there.
We also visited Pearl Harbour, which was a very humbling and amazing experience. We toured The USS Arizona Memorial to pay our respects and also met two survivors.
With 2017 just around the corner, I would love to hear what is on YOUR bucket list. What’s one thing on that list that you want to check off in the next year? Please feel free to share! I wish you a wonderful year and hope you achieve your dreams and goals.
