Gwen SparksFestival PR
I’m a mom, a wife, a friend and a lover of the sea. Everything I do, is connected to the ebb and flow of the ocean. Its where I am from, and where I will be forever more. In the last 40 or so years of my life, I’ve been incredibly blessed with more opportunities that I could ever have imagined growing up in a (then) tiny wind swept suburb on the West Coast. Travelling the world has taken me from the far reaches of icy Alaska to the balmy beaches of Bali and everything in between. A career in media and marketing has introduced me to so many brilliant people with inspiring stories to share. And I share them. I feel fortunate to hold their message in my hands.
