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 (we are proud members of Modo,Vancouver's first car-sharing co-operative), living green & being engaged in my community. I occasionally write about products or services that fit with my lifestyle & values, which I think might be of interest to my readers (like these ones) as well as working with brands to host giveaways or contests & other campaigns.

In addition to writing here, I teach bike education for HUB Cycling, I'm Secretary of the board of directors of the Mount Pleasant Family Centre, I am a member of the Active Transportation Policy Committee for the City of Vancouver, & I lead group family rides & for Vancouver Family Biking, facilitate the ABCs of Family Biking workshops, & plan the annual Mount Pleasant Family Biking Festival.

  2. Your twitter link in the list on the left is not spelled correctly, I think, because it doesn't take me there. I found you by other ways :)
