I am a social worker who raises funds for kids with terminal heart disease. I am a very compassionate person who loves being around nature and Melbourne has the most scenic places where one could go to really unwind and swing in the arms of mother nature. My motto in life is: good food, lively company and nature = Happiness. Food and nature is life. I strongly believe these two things together strongly contribute to a happy experience while travelling. I love being outdoors and really enjoy meeting new people. My friends and family call me the life of the party, hopefully I will bring some life to your party too when you are visiting this beautiful city.

I have lived in Melbourne for 30 years having moved here from Canada in the late 1980s. l fell in love with the city immediately on arrival and have watched with interest as it has grown and developed over the years into what is now a truly world-class city. I have plenty of experience as a traveller having travelled the world extensively throughout my life whether that be travelling on my own, with my family or with my wife. As well, for over seven years I worked as an editor, senior manager and writer for Lonely Planet Publications, which included writing the first and second editions of the LP Vancouver City Guide. I believe this personal and professional travel experience has given me a very good understanding of what goes into making a traveller's visit to a city inspiring, memorable and, most important of all, fun, no matter what their budget might be. With a range of interests that spans the arts, food & drink, history, music, markets, film, sports and the great outdoors, I believe I can tailor the perfect experience for just about anyone. Add to this my love of meeting new people, sharing great experiences and an innate desire to have fun, I believe I can help to make your visit to Melbourne an experience that will be cherished for a lifetime.

I am a born and raised Melbournian who loves her city! I have achieved a great amount of international travel but Melbourne will always be home. Every time I come back from an overseas trip, I appreciate my city even more. I see it with fresh eyes again and fall in love with my favourite spots over and over. I love that Melbourne is so diverse and can cater to a range of needs - food, shopping, history, sports, entertainment, arts/culture, architecture, parks, beaches - Melbourne has it all! I particularly love that the city is not too polished and there is an edge to it that some other established cities lack. It has a vibrant energy. It would be my honour to be an advocate for Melbourne and Melbourne tourism as a CityUnscripted local.
