My Personal Mission

I am committed to creating a world that works for us everyone, including all the diverse forms of life on earth.

In all aspects of my life and work in the world, I aim to create more of a sense of Home for people, in themselves and in the world.

My formal education is in EcoResort Design and Development, and I also have an MA in Counseling Psychology with a focus on Community Mental Health.

Growing up in the Golden Heart of Alaska, I always revered the natural world as a place of healing, wisdom, and finding solace for all aspects of my being.  Through a recognition the subtle energies of life around me, I came to understand a particular balance that we as human beings can embody in relation to the planet and our unique place in any given ecosystem.
