I am a life-long resident of Mississauga. Growing up, the only shopping areas were in Cooksville, Applewood and Port Credit, and only 25 years ago, there were cows in a field just a few miles from where I live now and horses were pastured near the Square One location. My how things have changed! My favourite thing about living here is the diversity found not only in my neighbours but in the food, culture, arts and shopping available here.
I like to stay current with local, national and international news, and love being involved in my local community. I currently volunteer for several different organizations, and I have a special interest in issues surrounding mental health. I caught the travel bug early and like to explore new cities and countries – it doesn’t matter where in the world I go – any place new is exciting. In my spare time I like to do yoga, garden, read, paint and attend live theatre.
