I was born and raised in Saskatchewan. I grew up in a small town just outside of Saskatoon and have called Saskatoon home for nearly 20 years. My hobbies include gardening, landscape design, dogs, yoga and physical fitness. My husband, son and I are very passionate about nature. We spend as much time as we can in the summer up north camping, fishing, hiking and kayaking. Northern Saskatchewan is absolutely stunning, the boreal forest, wildlife and sunsets are something we can never seem to get enough of.
