Monique Durand Currie lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba with her husband Curtis and rescue dog Emmett. She has worked as a special needs educational assistant for the last 15 years. Her many years in the school system have helped her to thoroughly understand the need for self-regulating and wellness strategies for children as well as adults. Throughout her life, she has always loved being outdoors and immersed in the beauty of nature. She actively practices yoga, meditation, chakra healing, and mindfulness, and loves to share her knowledge and gifts with everyone around her. She loves hiking, traveling to new places, reading, and walking her dog. This is Monique’s first published book…made all the more special with her daughter Alycia Currie as the illustrator.
