Bonjour!    čɛčɛhaθɛč   ¡Hola!   Hyvää päivää.   Hi!


If you don't know me, you've come to the right place.

This is where you can find out what I think, what I care about,

and what I'm passionate about.

My name is CaroleAnn

I am privileged and grateful to live, work & play within the traditional territory of the ɬəʔamen (Tla'amin) Nation peoples who have sustainably lived on these lands for many thousands of years as the original inhabitants.
