Not long ago I had a pretty normal life and a normal job. For over a decade I worked in media at various companies (CTV, Corus Entertainment, Harlequin, and Rogers) in varying roles – you name it, I tried it (marketing, research, sales, creative promotions, etc.). Life was busy and I was chugging along.
In December 2009 my world abruptly changed when I lost my mom to cancer. As an only child of divorced parents, it was always just my mom and I, so losing her was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through.
