I have lived in Mississauga for over 35 years, near the Square One area with my husband and our lovable yellow labrador. As an Ordained minister with Clergy Support Memorial Church.

I enjoy reading books on personal development as well as volunteer my free time with a monk who teaches Qi Gong which all allow to continue in my spiritual growth.
