Welcome to Thrifty Mom Media
“I Make Your Words Sing”
I am an award-winning freelance journalist, a Mom, an adoption advocate, a special needs niche writer and a speaker who travels North America talking about writing and advocating. I have been published in the Globe and Mail, Today’s Parent, Marketing magazine, Canadian Family, Canadian Author and, of course, far and wide on line. I guest post occasionally at The Yummy Mummy Club and Influencer Central.
For years I worked in daily newspapers publishing hard news on a deadline and leading news teams to front page stories and awards. Now I am a social media consultant, travel blogger, health blogger and money blogger too. I write on a wide range of topics and have always been a versatile writer as a result of my background in journalism.

My main goal is featuring information, events and news about things that are healthy for your family and ways they can explore getting healthier together.
