Vancouver SOUP – Director

Vancouver is my adopted home. My husband, two children, and I live in the Athlete’s Village Housing Co-op in the Olympic Village.  We love our tightly knit community by the seawall.  After having my daughter, I learned about Detroit SOUP and was inspired to start Vancouver SOUP.  Because I am trained as a sustainable fisheries researcher, this has been an exciting new adventure for me.  Along the way I’ve met countless driven, positive, and creative people who take action. I hope Vancouver SOUP can be a celebration of those people and a place for us all to connect and make our fine city even sweeter.
