Embracing PulseWire Community
I am someone who always enjoys pursuing various passions and interests- thus I have two jobs in different areas. I have worked with second language learners throughout my teaching career, both with children and adults. I am passionate about supporting others in finding their voice- both in spoken and written form. From this experience as well as extensive travel, my eyes have been opened to the many and varied voices, cultures, and challenges in our world. It's been a privilege to meet people all over the world gleaning from their personal narratives and experiences. I presently teach adults at a college in the Portland area as well as run my own business called Red Aphrodite- a stationary business with fun, whimsical, designs. In starting this business, I have faced challenges and done things I never thought I could. I believe in creating businesses that use our resources wisely and thus produce the greeting cards locally using 100 percent post consumer papers. I am learning as a collage/mixed media artist everyday. I love being a co-creator in our world fashioning language, art, connections, and womens' empowerment for a more complete and beautiful planet.
