About Me: 

Recently I learned that there are over 1,000 centenarians living in the U. S., in the state of Oklahoma. The oldest on record is 115, and she is reported to be remarkably healthy and managing her life with only minimal assistance. A colleague shared his insight on a conversation he had with a woman who is 107 years old and how he was stunned to realize she has already lived over three times as long as he has been alive. This got me thinking about what it might be like to live so long, and what the world might be like if I live to be 100+ years in this body. I realized there's no reason to wait any longer to do what I've been dreaming of doing for so long.

My Passions: 
Permaculture, Regional Agriculture and Small Business, Artistic Expression.
My Challenges: 
Collaborative Networking for Sharing Expertise and Funding
My Vision for the Future: 
Develop an interactive and educational small regional homestead based on permaculture practices and a profitable arts based cottage industry.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Administrative Management, Yoga Practice Education, Finding Flow through Chaos
