“Born in Calgary, I caught the travel bug while teaching in Europe-and I haven't looked back since! Western Canada is my preferred travel destination, and having the Rockies in my backyard to enjoy year round is indeed a privilege! I've also had the thrill of introducing many visitors to Calgary's famous Stampede every July. I'm a proud Canadian and proud Calgarian. I am here to share the pride and love I have for my country--its people, culture, food, geography, and history.”
