Colleen has always wanted to write and in 2011, she started her blog, Curtains are Open, as a means of working through some big life changes. Colleen is a single mom of three kids...The Tall Blonde (23), Spider-Man (17) and Bones (15)...who keep her hopping with their life's adventures and various sports!
Curtains are Open has won "The Best of the Coast" for three years as Colleen has pushed herself into the lives of Haligonians through her writing and social media. Curtains is filled with stories of parenting teens, family, friends and inspiration. Colleen is an "open book" with her writing...opening the curtains and letting you in! Her stories will either leave you laughing or crying...there's no in between! In 2013, Curtains inspired Colleen to self-publish a book, "Full Speed Ahead," allowing her to reach a lifelong dream of becoming an author!
As a graphic and web designer, Colleen is constantly being creative and her blogging and design businesses keep her quite busy. She's a Brand Ambassador for KIA and has worked with numerous brands on fun and exciting campaigns that match the Curtains brand. Colleen is truly living the saying..."love what you do and everything else falls into place."
