Lois (aka Fishtron in other parts of the internet) is a Trustee at the Vancouver School Board, elected in 2018 with the Green Party of Vancouver. She is also a superstar problem solver, web developer, and wundermother. She does all this on unceded traditional Coast Salish territories belonging to the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh, known to most as Vancouver, BC, Canada. She cohabits with her husband – sometimes called Mr Fishtron here – two young sons, and a loving pooch. When she's not writing about school board things, this space chronicles her adventures in owning a small tech business, being a Chinese settler-immigrant woman, geeking out about martial arts and meditation, and parenthood.
