About the moms behind British Columbia Mom


Tara is a 30 something year old full time working professional/mom originally from Ontario, she now calls Burnaby British Columbia home. She’s spent 8 rewarding years as an Office Coordinator working in the wellness sector and is passionate about helping others find the natural path back to health. She’s a mom to an energetic 6 year old named Alivia who loves music, dancing and surprising her parents everyday. With a spontaneous family with a love for the outdoors (they do live in one of the most picturesque provinces!) they spend as much time as they can exploring their neighborhood and what beautiful British Columbia has to offer.

She lives on coffee, cuddles and cupcakes. Generally in that order.

As a saver at heart, she has a major passion for finding the best deal, the best events and the best activities to entertain her family – without breaking the bank!


Helisa is a stay at home mom of two with a  hard working hubby who is regularly dispatched out of town. When she isn’t cleaning house, she enjoys baking and making with her kids, contesting, cosmetics, and using her sarcastic wit . Originally from Ontario, she has made  beautiful British Columbia her home since 2002.
