profile photoI 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 achieve 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 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.

This blog is full of observational snapshots, often my own experiences being a mother, teacher and life-long student.  I warmly welcome comments and encourage continuous dialogue. Thank you for joining me!

2020 Life Update:
The past few years I’ve found myself busy with a toddler (yes, I’m a mother times two now), sending my older “kiddo” off to college, and working a full time job. I haven’t carved out the time to write much over the past few years, but look for my series coming soon on hiking the Oregon section of the Pacific Crest Trail.
