This is the place where I will tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Linda Wall; I live in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.

I am a Baby Boomer – born in the mid-fifties. I have lived my whole life here in Beautiful British Columbia.

Writing/Editing Experience

  • I’ve been writing all my life – poetry has been very cathartic for me ever since I was a child.
  • I have also published a few small collections (Watching Big Brother – essays; and The Dance of Intimacy: love, loss and longing through poetry)
  • I have also written and produced newsletters for a few non-profit organizations.
  • I have edited a few books and got them to ‘print-ready’ stage
  • I have published a few small chap-books (32 pages)
  • I am currently working with a client on her biography (a much longer process than previous projects – +250 pages so far)
  • Editing and proof-reading essays, books and university papers
  • Update resumes and cover letters
  • I dabble in simple graphic arts projects (adding text to graphics…)
  • Business cards
  • Brochures
  • Pamphlets
  • Posters
  • Memorial Service / Celebration of Life memorial brochures

I am looking forward to branching out and facilitating workshops online and in person:

  • Budgeting workshop
  • Low-Cost Cooking workshops
  • Publishing Options workshop
  • Self-Esteem course
  • And Others

My Education

 

With some fits and starts I graduated from high school in the late ‘70s at the age of 22 with a 2-year old daughter.

I am a life-long learner, and it seems every decade I have gone back for some kind of schooling:

  • Bookkeeping certificate,
  • Fashion Design & Merchandising diploma
  • Bachelor’s Degree in psychology.

 

Nowadays I tend to take much shorter classes – such as weekend workshops, or six to twelve-week courses, mostly involving spiritual teachings or personal growth through the Centres for Spiritual Living or Dan Hines –  Centre for Courage and Renewal.

I love participating in self-improvement, personal growth workshops such as The Forum back in the 80s and the Pursuit of Excellence in the 90s

My Personal Life

 

I have had one pregnancy and raised my daughter mostly by myself. She is now in her 40s and got married on 12-13-14 @15:00 (December 13, 2014 at 15:00 hours) [3 p.m.]

I have been married and divorced once. And I have loved and lost many times.

Currently I am single/divorced and have been for many years. Today I enjoy my own company, although it would be nice to have a partner for conversation and companionship.

 

My Personality

 

I come from the school of hard knocks.

I have been a people-pleaser, a door-mat, a martyr and a rebel who has evolved into a loving, kind, compassionate, forgiving, independent, caring woman.

 

My Mission & Purpose in Life

 

“Empowering others to take a balanced approach to their own health and wellness by focusing on all aspects of the whole person.”

“Focusing on the whole person to maximize health and wellness for life.”

I write this website with love and as much honesty and integrity as I can muster.

 

I am only an ‘expert’ on my own life and what I have learned along the way. I know that what works for me, may or may not work for you.

I am not a doctor or lawyer, and my website is only for information purposes. Please seek expert advice from a doctor or health care practitioner before making any radical changes in your life.
