PERSONAL HISTORY

I am passionate about writing and pursuing creative endeavors.  I am a storyteller.
On a certificate I received in Grade 1, it said I had read Peter Pan to the class with “great animation”.  No wonder.  My imagination has always been captivated by tales of adventure.

My hobbies include:  Eating, reading, watching movies and working out (to balance out hobby number 1).

I am pleased to advise that I am moving forward into a new business venture.  For more information, please see www.elliepotvin.com.
