Lori is a proud Newfoundlander who hopes to visit the other half of her province (Labrador) someday. She is a computer engineer currently working in research project management, and a devoted volunteer to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
She is also a mom to one fur-child (beagle, age 14) and two human children (aged 3 and 1.5), and wife to a fellow computer engineer. In whatever free time is leftover, she likes to eat, run, travel, and learn more about everything.

Because it’s Edmonton, and because her roots run deep in this city, this week’s tweets will include wanders to some of her old haunts and new favourite places. And she pretty much promises, there will be tweets about fireworks and (hopefully) pancakes on Canada Day!

Despite being a true Vancouverite at heart, Winona So moved to Waterloo four years ago to attend the University of Waterloo. Even though she fell in love with Waterloo, she decided to come back to work in Vancouver for 4 months for the summer.
Cats (especially her cat), user interface and design, television, and baking delicious foods are a big part of her life, but she also can’t go a day without some video games and some form of fitness (she recently fell in love with lifting weights).
She’s currently an English major (with only 4 months left!) who studies business, and specializes in digital arts communication, but she’s a little bit crazy, and wants to go back to school for more.

Heather was born and raised in Guelph, Ontario and has been living in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario since she graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University.
She has a passion for local food and craft beers, both of which are in abundance in Waterloo Region.
If she isn’t working away on something in the kitchen, her and her husband are probably outdoors enjoying camping, gardening, hiking and road trips.

Fairweather geocacher, chapstick addict. Sandy is a grade 5/6 teacher in Winnipeg. She moved there in 1999, from Edmonton after completing a BSc in Geography at the University of Alberta. She completed her BEd at the University of Manitoba.
Sandy has been active on Twitter since 2009, when she discovered all the incredible learning she and her students could do. That’s pretty much how she got into geocaching, and a plethora of other techy past-times. Now she does them all for fun too.
Sandy loves to share her passion for learning. She strives to one day be a school administrator. She’s also a member of Winnipeg’s Burger Club- not a bad gig!
