About Me

2015 family photo taken by Bethany Schiedel
A former ESL teacher, linguistics nerd & graduate of the Simon Fraser University Public Relations Certificate Program, I've always loved writing & teaching.

I published my first 'mom blog', The Sprog, when I was pregnant with my son in 2010. Since then, I was nominated as of Vancouver Mom's Top 30 Bloggers of 2012 & our little family has grown from three to four. Spokesmama was born out of the realization that I wanted to shift away from purely personal blogging & toward more advocacy.

While I still write about my life & my family on Spokesmama, I aim to focus more on family cycling, car-sharing, living green & being engaged in my community. 

I'm a Blogger Ambassador for Modo, Vancouver's first carsharing co-operative, as well as Rebecca Page Patterns.

In addition to writing here, I'm a bike education coordinator for HUB Cycling, I'm a volunteer pilot for the Vancouver chapter of Cycling Without Age, & I lead group family rides & for Vancouver Family Biking, facilitate the ABCs of Family Biking workshops, & plan annual family & cargo biking events.
