Colleen O’Dea

Colleen always wanted to write and in 2011, she started her blog, Curtains are Open, as a means of working through some big life changes. Colleen is a single mom of three kids…Emily (25), Noah (18) and Megan (17)…who keep her hopping with their adventures and various sports!

Curtains are Open has won “The Best of the Coast” for five¬†years as Colleen has pushed herself into the lives of Haligonians through her writing and social media. Curtains is filled with stories of parenting teens, family, friends and inspiration. Colleen is an “open book” with her writing…opening the curtains and letting you in! Her stories will either leave you laughing or crying…there’s no in between!

As a graphic and web designer, Colleen is constantly being creative and her blogging and design businesses work together quite seamlessly. Through Curtains are Open, Colleen is a Brand Ambassador for O’Regan’s KIA Dartmouth and Sears Canada. Colleen has also worked with numerous brands including President’s Choice, Shoppers Drug Mart, Netflix, SportChek and Best Buy.

Colleen is truly living the saying…”love what you do and everything else falls into place.”
