I am…..


I am many things but figuring out what things about me make me a ninja is hard. I am the procrastinator of the group obviously since I am the last to post, and wanna be perfectionist since this is probably my 6th version of my intro. But I am much more.

My name is Kirsten, I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a friend. I am one of the Canadian Ninjas  and very lucky to live close to Megan in the suburbs of Vancouver, British Columbia. I work full time (plus some) for a non profit organization with children, I have a near five year old son about to enter kindergarten (get ready for cute bento lunch posts) and have been married for what seems like for-ever! (just kidding honey)

Like the others I love coffee, sushi, reading, cooking, wine and having fun.  I love to learn about nutrition but hate anything that feels like exercise. You will never find me in a gym but biking with my family, exploring the local parks & trails or hanging in my backyard with friends makes up my free time. I love to entertain, menu plan, and try new foods. I am shy but sarcastic and once I get talking I never shut up. I am never without my phone or iPad but am completely computer illiterate. This is going to be a great big adventure for me and I can’t wait to get it started with you.

Searching out a group of women online that were there to support each other in a healthy life was how we met, one fateful New Year’s Eve chat was how we connected and now we are family. Welcome to Being Ninjas.

Hey you there!

Yes, we’re talking to you, the person behind that phone or computer screen. Welcome to Being Ninjas!

Pull up a seat, grab a drink, (water, coffee, craft beer, wine, any of those are fine by us but really it’s your drink so have whatever you like) and join in on the conversation. We love meeting new people and making new friends so introduce yourself, tell us what brought you here and what you’re most interested in hearing about from a group of self proclaimed ninjas.
