About Lori

I grew up in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, moving to the Sunshine Coast in September 1994.  I’ve been in love with the Coast since that first ferry ride – the mountains, the ocean and the people.   Moving here as a young adult in the 90’s gave me a unique perspective as I established roots, made friends, worked, and started my family –  I know how difficult and isolating it can be for young people first hand.   And that was back when we had a pool hall and two bowling alleys!
