About dfrent


I was raised in a family whose members understood the power of words.  My interest and skills in writing came early, when I received a creative writing award in grade two.  However, it wasn’t until years later, when I worked at a university and enrolled as a “mature” student, that the call to write emerged loudly and clearly.  Since then I have incorporated writing in everything I do, understanding its power.  I hold a Master of Arts degree in English Literature and Rhetoric, have a good start on a Ph.D. program in the same disciplines, and have taught a variety of courses related to these disciplines.

My writing skills have proven essential in my work as a professional fundraiser.  They also led me to establish the News Update Team (NUTs) for the Swiftsure International Yacht Race, write Menopause or Lunacy … That is the Question, and create The Essential Family Caregiving Agreement and the accompanying guidance packages.  Every one of these projects was born to allow me to help make a ‘dfrence’ by using my own life experience for the benefit of others.  I look forward to making a ‘dfrence” for  you!
