About Me: 

Woman of the earth. Heart bursting with love for all things, unable to absorb the density of beauty we witness living on this, “garden island in space."(1) Convinced, " we will save what we love." (2) Full of faith that things can change if we simply change our minds, decide the corner office and a Mercedes isn't all it's cracked up to be, in fact it might just be a big fat lie. That simpler living means that human beings not political systems can figure out ways to feed everyone, since after all the cornucopia has plenty. Unable to comprehend how cutting down forests in football field sized swaths every second and oceans so filthy that swimming is unsafe for humanity much less capable of supporting life couldn't cry out for the dominating species of this planet to take responsibility for the burden of consumption it places on the rest of all that lives. Recognizing that the hand wrapped around a rifle or clenched in a fist could just as easily plant a tree, wipe away a tear or hold another’s hand and that mobilizing the untapped wisdom, love and power of women and girls is the key to our global future.
