Live Well + Grow Well
I didn’t always know I was going to be an entrepreneur. Actually, for most of my adult life I was determined to be a university professor. I even started my PhD program – until life decided to put me on a different road, starting the greatest adventure of my life!
Coming from an academic background, I like to think that I use my research skills for everything new I undertake. From starting my sea salt company to writing books to running The Lucky Sprout, each adventure is founded on a solid base of research.
That’s why I’m so proud of the products that I put forward in this brand. I can feel confident that I’m offering my community the best information possible because I go the extra mile.
Part of what I love about my career as a creative mentor is that I can take my work with me anywhere I go. I love being able to travel and work independently from different countries and cities. Freedom and independence are so important to me – and I know that resonates with a lot of you, too!

Part of a new generation of entrepreneurs.
I’m a Toronto girl who grew up all around eastern Canada. I completed three degrees: a BA in Classics, an MA in Classics, and an MA in English. I’ve worked a ton of jobs, everything from library assistant to retail clerk to museum guide. After I graduated, I started writing…and I’ve never really stopped!
I live just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and I have a beautiful senior golden retriever and a hedgehog nephew. When I’m not working, you can probably catch me dreaming and scheming about the next big thing. I have no problem whatsoever with failure, and embrace it as a sign that I’m making progress. You gotta break a few eggs, y’know? It just makes the successes that much sweeter!
I love watercolour painting and creating linocut prints. I’m an avid photographer, especially when I’m travelling. I’m a longtime vegetarian and get a lot of joy from cooking – look back through my blog and you’ll see that I started TLS as a food blog!
My favourite drink is a London Fog and I have four cool tattoos and six even cooler scars. And if you need to know even more about me, go visit my Instagram where I share my life on a daily basis!
I work as a freelance editor for fiction, non-fiction, comic books, and academic work.
Though I have a full client roster right now, I will accept new assignments on a case-by-case basis.
I've spoken at many conference panels and lectured at universities.
I'm always interested in hearing about new public speaking opportunities, so contact me via the link at the top of the page if interested.
My writing repertoire is wide: I write novels, blog posts, articles, academic papers, and non-fiction books.
