About me

Hi- I’m Jan. I’m a Canadian currently living abroad in SE Asia. I teach ESL and Bible classes and also study language part-time.
I am possibly a coffee snob. I love the idea of healthy living and might border on being a bit crunchy, (think sourdough bread, water kefir, and yogurt- all homemade of course) but my love of fries and ice cream keep me balanced.
I love to try new things- especially creating in art form. I love paradoxes and juxtapositions. I’m an introvert but also enjoy socializing. I’m an enneagram 4 for all you enneagram lovers out there. True to type, I relate deeply to being a tortured artist.
I’m a farm girl at heart but am currently living in the city and quite like it. I am passionate about seeing people find freedom and healing, and want to be an advocate for people- especially women and children who are vulnerable to/are currently being exploited. I believe that Jesus has commanded His followers to care for the poor, the widows and the orphans. I’m still learning what this should look like in everyday life.

“Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them.”
