biking on the Capital Crescent trail

After flopping between the East Coast and the West Coast for many years, Victoria now resides in beautiful British Columbia with her web developer husband, Joe. She loves helping people learn how to navigate technology to meet their information needs, and is currently working on her MLIS at the University of British Columbia.

An ideal day would involve: savoring a good meal, working out, enjoying nature, reading, journaling, helping people, catching up with friends, doing something craftsy, writing letters, playing the piano, and/or listening to works by the Impressionists and Les Six.

She thinks the world would be a better place without the following: processed foods, social injustice, the culture of over-consumption, corporate farming, busyness, when people give too many standing ovations at symphony concerts, and spiders.

At some point in her life, she would like to: learn jazz piano, go hang-gliding, be an internet librarian, contribute to bridging the digital divide, be fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese, and be smart enough to code instead of wanting to bang her head against the wall. ;)

Lyricalisse is a made-up word she came up with when trying to translate the last two characters of her Chinese name, which literally mean “poem-rhythm.”
