What is your most marked characteristic?
I’ve been told that it’s my unique laugh! :)
What is your favourite way to unwind?
Depending on the type of unwinding I need, it’s either a nice aligning yoga practice in a candlelit room or it’s cozying up on a bed or couch with a cup of herbal tea, essential oils diffusing and soft music.
What is your favorite Nova Scotia food?
Lobster of course! And all seafood actually. I realized that I never truly appreciated the seafood we have here until I left the province for 6 years!.
