First and foremost, I'm mom to Allison and Jonathan and wife to Richard. I'm also an online writing instructor at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. I co-created and currently teach a course called "Fundamentals of Academic Essay-Writing" -- which is no more, or less, exciting than it sounds.
I also spend a fair amount of time reading, singing/worship leading, Nordic walking (a.k.a. urban poling), and hanging out with my family.
My life quote is this sentence from The Lord of the Rings:
Such is oft the course of deeds
that move the wheels of the world:
small hands do them because they must,
while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.
