I once read a magazine article that described a particular sort of woman as “blurtatious”–that is, a woman who thinks and speaks quickly; whose emotions are close to the surface; and who enjoys a good round of verbal sparring.
I’m Julie Ovenell, and I am that sort of woman.
I am also the mom of two grown (and launched!) kids and partner to a wonderful man. I work as the Director of Communications in Communications & Marketing at the University of British Columbia on Canada’s beautiful west coast.
I write for a living, which means I often end up telling other people’s stories. This is a place to tell my own stories. Sometimes I’m more blurty than others. And I really appreciate hearing from you when something I’ve shared here resonates.
