Ana is a freelance writer based in Toronto. In a previous incarnation she obtained a PhD in French literature. All things creative, expressive, inspired, inspiring and engaging make her heart sing. She is multilingual and has lived in France and Portugal for extended periods of time. Insatiably curious, she is a voracious reader, bibliophile, neophiliac and truth-teller. She has worked in communications in the corporate sector and in academia, and also as a researcher, writer, editor, translator and yoga teacher. She adores the ocean and has saltwater coursing through her veins. She needs poetry and beauty like she needs the air that she breathes. She owns far too many shoes and handbags.
