I was born and raised in southern Alberta, but live in Scottsdale, Arizona area with my husband and two beautiful daughters. I met my husband while attending college. During my second year, I landed a great job working for an on-campus restaurant that caters to the university's faculty. I immediately fell head-over-heels for the tall, dark handsome guy (also a student) slaving over over the stove. I have a weird idiosyncrasy whereby I connect memories with food. It's a little strange that my sense of taste has influenced my memories to the degree that it has, but my friends and family always get a kick out of hearing what food or foods I associate with them. I have a degree in social work, but I am currently staying at home raising my kids. One day, I hope to return back to work, either in a hospital or school setting.
