Describe what an average day looks like for you?
I work Monday- Friday but in the evenings you will find me with friends or reading a good book! On the weekends I am usually on the move, in the summer I will be on the golf course or on a beach and in the winter, checking out a good restaurant or crafting a new project.

What is your favourite thing about life in PEI?
How friendly everyone is. I love the fact that you can’t go a day without running into someone you know! Not to mention how beautiful it is here.

What is something people wouldn't know if they're not from the island?
That we are not actually as small as people think we are! I worked with WestJet airlines for 6 years and that is something people always said when they were leaving!

What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy? What can’t you stop talking about?
Travel! I love travelling and seeing different parts of the world. As much as I love PEI and this is where I want to build my life, it is nice to see the different cultures and environments.

If you had to choose one spot on the island to take someone who has never been here, where would it be?
Lakeside Beach, it is hands down the best beach on the Island!
