CALIFORNIA, USA: Interview with Carri Brown

Where in the world do you live? And, are you from there?

I was born and raised in Southern California. I’ve spent the majority of my life in Ventura County, which is between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara Counties. We are blessed with great weather, beautiful beaches, and low crime. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to grow up and I’m so happy that I’m able to raise our son here.

What language(s) do you speak?

I speak English but after a few days in Mexico, I’m able to remember some of my four years of Spanish.

When did you first become a mother?

I became a mother on February 3rd, 2009. Blake is our only child and we are not planning on having any other children. (more…)

Kirsten Doyle (Canada)

Kirsten Doyle was born in South Africa. After completing university, she drifted for a while and finally washed up in Canada in 2000. She is Mom to two boys who have reached the stage of eating everything in sight (but still remaining skinny). Kirsten was a computer programmer for a while before migrating into I.T. project management. Eventually she tossed in the corporate life entirely in order to be a self-employed writer and editor. When Kirsten is not wrestling with her kids or writing up a storm, she can be seen on Toronto's streets putting many miles onto her running shoes. Every year, she runs a half-marathon to benefit children with autism, inspired by her older son who lives life on the autism spectrum. Final piece of information: Kirsten is lucky enough to be married to the funniest guy in the world. Connect with her on Facebook and on Twitter @running4autism.
