A friend of mine posted a video message from entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk called, “So you turned 50.” That number is looming in front of me and like many people I’m dreading it, fighting it, and looking at every birthday as yet another moment closer to lamenting all the “should haves” and “could haves” in my […]

I am contemplating moving to Vancouver, British Columbia. It was originally Los Angeles, California, but the thought of giving up Canadian residency and moving four young children to the United States scares the hell out of me.

I kept three of my four children home from school with fevers and coughing, thinking “Wow, I’m such a great mom, the kids get rest and I’m a hero because I didn’t send them off to infect other children.” Big mistake! By the end of the day, I had started coughing and I crawled into […]

I just got back from Vancouver, where I took a weekend intensive with one of my favourite acting coaches, Jeb Beach.

My 73 year old mother took me to Disney World this past week. She also took my four children and we managed to take in four days at the parks while resting in-between at the pool in a resort. This all came about at a time in my life when I was calculating savings for […]

I did something I said I would never do again…theatre. “But Stephanie”, you might say, “Didn’t you get a degree in Theatre?” Well the answer is yes, I’m still a strong believer that an actor needs to spend time on stage as this is the very root of acting.

I can’t relate to other grown ups.

by: in Humour in Life and Business

I have been noticing that I’m a lot more reserved in the company of other parents. With four kids, we are at a lot of after-school programs: Swimming, Scouts, Dance, Cooking, Drums, French, and the list goes on. At these programs we send off our children to engage in an activity that will (hopefully) make […]
