Welcome To My Blog! Way Back in 2010

I keep this post around for fun. The 10-year-old I mention below is now a Sophomore at the University of Oregon!

I was blessed nearly 10 years ago with my beautiful daughter Hadlie, and being a parent has been one of the best gifts the universe could deliver.  Not only do I get to see the world through a mother’s perspective, but I also get to “re-live” the world through my child’s eyes.  For the past several years I have been working on a double major, Environmental Studies and Journalism (public relations concentration), at the University of Oregon.  I am passionate about conserving and protecting our environment and include my daughter in all of my endeavors.  She has been to global climate change rallies, written her politicians demanding for a cleaner environment, and attended numerous eco-focused seminars and workshops with me.  I feel one of our greatest efforts for preserving the planets health, should be developing good habits in our children, after all, it is much harder to break bad habits when we are older!  If we can make it a priority to teach our children to be stewards of their community, we can deliver a generation of citizens who are knowledgeable about, and inspired, to take responsibility for the health of the world.

I have a special interest in ecotourism and the marine environment.  Through my many travels abroad, I have learned that collaborating internationally is important for a sustainable future for our planet.  This blog will focus on environmental issues (a huge umbrella), parenting and raising children to be eco-conscious, while providing successful communication tools for creating effective messaging. I seek to educate and empower individuals to make a difference, and encourage everyone to take action in the issues that they care deeply about.  Welcome to my blog!

I have lived in the Pacific Northwest nearly my whole life and was raised to appreciate and enjoy the natural world. My passion for the environment and studying environmental justice, eco-tourism, green design, renewable energy, green cities, biodiversity, and biology led me to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Studies. My knack for event planning, community organizing and media communications led me to pursue a degree in Journalism & Communications with a concentration in Public Relations. My two degrees dovetail nicely, providing me the tools to play my part in protecting natural areas in a constantly changing world of communications. I believe strongly in environmental education, and communicating the beauty and necessity of local stewardship. Being a mother is a daily reminder of the importance to lead by example for our younger generations. I strive to do all I can in my daily activities to make healthy choices for my community and family. I am Currently Seeking Employment! If you have a lead on a position that sounds like a good fit, please keep me in mind and let me know! I am currently in Portland Oregon, but willing to relocate for the right position. I’m interested in the business sector as well as non-profit or freelance work. I am available to guest blog regularly, part-time or project based for your company or organization. In the end, I have a lot of passion, leadership and drive to make a difference, and I can’t wait to start! See my PORTFOLIO section on heathercyrus.com for a resume and samples of work.
