Hey Lunagals everywhere, here is my intro to the blogosphere. It’s exciting, as I’ve often fantasized about blogging  so that I could share with others the story about the birth of  my boys and my personal journeys.  Plus, I really enjoy reading a few friends’ blogs as well as lurking in the local motheringdotcommune discussion boards. But, I never got around to creating my own blog. So, Lunapads’ foray into the world wide blog is my chance! And it’s been really fun learning how to use the blogging tools and writing stories and comments on what is going on in my mind.

I was born and raised in Victoria BC by immigrant parents from China who moved to Canada looking for a better life.  I moved to Vancouver in the early 80′s to attend university and get a business degree and become a Chartered Accountant…


I entered the traditional workforce and spent several years at a big accounting firm and then moved on to a job as Controller for a mid sized public company. Realizing there was way more to life than finance, excel spreadsheets, making my bosses and shareholders lots of money, and being stressed out with constant deadlines, the divine goddess decided I should meet Madeleine. Since then, I’ve become a proud feminist, crunchy attachment parenting mom to two amazing boys (Aiden, 6 and Garret, 2) discovered organic food, joined the board of a local environmental organization and am a regular mentor to other women entrepreneurs.  I enjoy running/hiking in my lovely community of Deep Cove and Chinese water brush painting.  Today, my ‘so called stress’ is about balancing work and family: deciding whether to work from home, go to the office, or play with my boys. I’m grateful for the support of my amazing partner, Craig, who puts up with my crazy schedule.
