Lena is a writer, social media enthusiast and authentic shopaholic. In fact, if it’s on sale – she’s already bought it. Lena started her blog, Listen to Lena, as a way of communicating the best parenting finds to friends and family, but as she continued to post, it was not long before an old passion was reignited – writing. And so her site evolved to focus on her love of creative writing and includes product features, humorous takes on parenthood and her famous random rants. Lena is passionate about good food, finding great local artisans and shops, and discovering all the thrilling city of Toronto has to offer.
