About Me My passion is in being a voice for the voiceless.

I am vegan, I am pro-life, and I consider myself a citizen of planet earth... not just my city, my state or my country.

I love Jesus, my husband, our three rescued dogs, and our cabin on the river in the NC foothills.

I always want to hear the other side of the story before making up my mind.

I believe in the butterfly effect. Every action taken adds up to tremendous consequence somewhere else in the world. Whether it's eating that burger, drinking a glass of milk, ignoring the homeless person in need of $5, or buying that sweatshop t-shirt. Somewhere down the line, someone else pays a greater price than you just did.

I am an ethics and applied philosophy grad school student, a Corporate Liaison for PETA, and own a web design company.
