About Me I am always working out a story in my mind. I love storytelling. I like supporting businesses that are committed to social and environmental fairness and sustainable practices. I love gardening and spend a lot of my free time either writing or planting a seed. I love my cat. I got an education in international policy studies and realized after working in government that often even if you make a good argument, the fight for progressive-minded folks who see a brighter future is obstructed by so many people who are afraid of change and aren't willing to listen, and who put down people who care about how interdependent we all are. I continue to voice myself, nonetheless. I love being connected with folks who aren't afraid to stand up for fairness and fight injustices.
