I was born and raised in Northern England and studied Film and Television production in my undergraduate before moving to Canada in 2015 to study at the Vancouver Art Therapy Institute (VATI). I knew I always wanted to dedicate my life to helping others, it just took me a roundabout way to find out how. I graduated as an Art Therapist at the end of 2016 and was hired as a Youth Addiction Counsellor for the Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC in their Nexus Program on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside in 2017.
When I’m not working or blogging, I’m studying for my Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology online at Yorkville University – as well as writing fiction! I completed my first novel in 2018 after participating in the 2017 Pitch Wars Cohort. My literary agent is Lauren MacLeod at The Strothman Agency.
