HOSTED BY  Be and Belong

Lisa, Tina and Linda are sisters. Be and Belong came to fruition when we were meeting for sister dinners in between balancing life, family, parenting, and work. We shared ideas, explored and reflected on our parenting and professional experience, and decided we wanted to bring our complimentary skills together.

Lisa is a Clinical Psychologist, Tina is an Occupational Therapist, and Linda is an Information Architect. Together we have co-created Be and Belong. Our aim is to create learning opportunities, experiences, and products that encourage curiosity, deeper connections, meaningful relationships, and a sense of belonging.
