Writing and teaching are essential instruments in my sustainability toolbox, and I delight in sharing stories of hope and resilience. But lived experience brings depth to my understanding of change. This is why I prioritize my own active engagement and leadership in my community.


I was a TEDxMahtomedi speaker in 2016, and the emcee in 2018. I continue my work on the Steering and Program Committees.
