Meet Janette Shearer, Founder of Ava To Zoe, Vancouver’s Top Lifestyle Blog

It’s so nice to meet you! I’m so glad you found me. I’m Janette Shearer. I started blogging as Vancity Mommy D in 2014. Since then my “mommy” blog has grown and blossomed into the Lifestyle Blog Ava to Zoe, a publication named for my daughters, covering our lives A to Z.

It’s a blog with a purpose close to my heart. I went through postpartum depression in my first pregnancy and it was really hard, so I started writing during my second pregnancy as a way to cope. I created this cozy corner of the internet as a space of non-judgment for other mamas just trying to get through their days the best way they know how. After all, we’re all in this together.

That sense of community is something so central for Ava to Zoe because I know what it’s like to be on the outside and feeling left out. I was kicked out a running group and went on to become a three-time sponsored runner in the Vancouver Sun Run. I took that hurt and channeled it into my sport and my community to put more love out there for the people who need it. With that said, welcome, and thanks for joining us! Now let’s grab some wine and cookies and settle in for a chat!
