About Me: 

I'm a mom of twins and a grandmother of triplets. I guess you could say we believe in doing things in multiples in our family! Actually, that's just how it turned out, but I have to say that 3 is way more than 2, especially when they are two and a half years old.

I began my career teaching preschool and retired last year from advising nursing students in a baccalaureate completion program. Now I facilitate The Pachamama Alliance's Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium. My aspiration is to be true to the deepest calling of the heart, and I keep being surprised at where that leads me, including right here...to the World Pulse community.

My Passions: 
Connecting, singing my song.
My Challenges: 
Being present even when I feel like hiding.
My Vision for the Future: 
Bringing forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on the Earth.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Writing, facilitating circles, storytelling.
