About Me: 

I enjoy the privileges of a retiree in selecting my avocations. My personal passion is the out-of-doors; I hike often and lead hikes in the San Francisco Bay Area and the California Sierra. My human passion is promoting gender equity/gender rights. I coach for a girls' running program locally. Internationally, I monitor several women's organizations. I am most active for World Pulse. Every day I am inspired by the efforts of my female advocates around the world who are finding strong voices through the forums of World Pulse.

My Passions: 
Hiking
My Challenges: 
Maintaining optimism about challenges to our planet and its people
My Vision for the Future: 
World citizens will make decisions for the seventh generation, based on the native American tradition.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Education
My Languages: 
English, some French
