LINDY HUGHES PFEIL
Before marriage, motherhood and emigration, I taught English literature in South Africa. Since then I have been (amongst many other things) a dance and yoga instructor, restorative justice practitioner and editor.
My background is in Journalism, Communications and Psychology (MSc). I am a certified coach and Guided Autobiography facilitator, and the author of two books: It Never Stays in Vegas, a novel and The Common Wife, a memoir.
I work with individuals, families, teams and organisations and my greatest thrill is witnessing people uncover the magic in their stories. I am a Member of the Canadian Psychological Association, the National Association of Memoir Writers, the Royal Academy of Dance and the North Shore Immigrant Advisory Council.
I collect rocks, love the moon and walk barefoot whenever I can. Deep purple is my favourite colour and I have a very hard time remembering book and movie titles. I don't know why. I believe, absolutely, in miracles. Because I see them every day.
I am tickled pink to have received the 2018 West Vancouver Citizen of the Year Award. Thank-you West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce!
