A lifelong proper nerd, Toni grew up near Detroit, Michigan. Now, she’s a keen hiker and outdoor explorer now based on Vancouver Island, BC Canada. She works in management and consulting for web-based businesses, and likes that her children are now mostly adults. Outside of work, Toni studies mushrooms and plants and forages for both. She has many other hobbies and interests, but the thing she is most passionate about is juggling.
