Hi and thank you for taking the time to check out my blog. I decided to start blogging to share my experiences in many different aspects of my life such as work, motherhood, marriage and family. I have always had many interesting stories to tell and never knew how to share them until now. If you have any questions or would like me to write on a specific topic please just leave a comment below.
Here is a little about me.
Let me start by saying that I have been a fundraiser for over 9 years and my passion is to help others. My background first was in social work and I had the opportunity to work for different organizations at a more entry level position until I obtained a position as a Job Developer where I would assist the unemployed find employment. I did this for a few years and truly did enjoy it. I made a lot of connections and employers knew that if they called me, I could find them a great employee. However, I am always up for a challenge and when an opportunity came up for a fundraiser I thought, “why not?” I could use my marketing and people skills to raise money for the non-profit I was working for and ensure that we would continue to offer services to benefit the community. I also have volunteered as a fundraiser for other causes that are dear to my heart such as the Canadian Liver Foundation (personal connection that I can write at a later post) and Animal causes.
On August 1, 2014, I got the most important job of my life, I became a mom! At 4:03 AM, I gave birth to a 5lb and 9oz baby girl that we named, Nikki. She became my everything! So far it has been 10 months into motherhood and there has been good and bad days but overall, I wouldn’t trade it for the world! Even the many countless and sleepless nights!
This will be all for my brief introduction and I look forward in writing more posts on my experiences.
