About Me: 

I have jsut returned to Portland, Oregon after living for most of the last 10 years in South Africa, working with a women's weaving cooperative in a small village outside a black township. It was some sort of synchronicity that brought me there 9 years ago after a year of breast cancer treatment just when the 30 year old coop was about to go under. Regina always says it was the good Lord. I only know that they needed me and I needed them.
I worked with these women, their children and grandchildren until just a few months ago when I returned to Portland to create a teaching/counseling practice here once again. I miss Africa, I miss the women of the Mapusha coop. I don't know how to continue to work for the global connection of empowered women but that is what I believe in and this seems a first step, joining the World Pulse network.

My Passions: 
women's empowerment, global community, opportunity and hope
My Challenges: 
Living in Portland Oregon while trying to support myself and not knowing how to make a difference here. Missing Africa
My Vision for the Future: 
Somehow lending my voice to the movement for equality, women's empowerment, more compassion/community
My Areas of Expertise: 
your basic cheerleader, writer, speaker, teacher.
