Your guide to disability and social responsibility


I'm Lia, a disability writer

and co-founder of Lara Guide Dog School. 

I split my time between managing this blog and contributing articles and blog posts to businesses like SIC or nonprofits like Lara Guide Dog School.

Are you trying to build a relationship with disabled people?

I would love to hear how I can help you.

Together we can help people connect, believe in your cause, invest, and tell their friends about you.

Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.

When I'm not writing I can be found spending time with my coffee machine, my eReader, my three paprika chip-eating boys and disc dogging with Max.

I dazzle my days spending time supporting animal shelters. A tail wag makes my day. Join me. Adopt a dog.

I spend a lot of time eating and sharing my love of plant-based food with anyone who’ll listen! I also support and work with vegan businesses.

Do you know the magical feeling of sailing? The breeze filling the sailboat with life and the quiet gurgle of water under the hull? That's where I find my peace.

A view of Basel city and the river Rhein

Basel, Switzerland

The greater Basel area is my home; imagine the greater Vancouver area only much smaller. This is the view I get from my favourite spot on Wettstein bridge. Basel is a medieval city on the river Rhein. It's an enchanting place to work and live in. I moved here and discovered the spellbinding culture, architecture and the best chocolate shops the world has to offer — and, did you know the average Swiss eats more than 10 kilos of chocolate per year?
