I am skilled at holding space and sitting with uncertainty and discomfort. I have worked with a Rites of Passage guide, a shamanic practitioner, many therapists, and in Adult Children of Alcoholics to clear my trauma and practice becoming the best version of myself. I am trained in nonviolent civil disobedience, and am a Climate Reality Leadership Corps member & mentor. I am in the process of earning certificates in Mindfulness Practice and Life Coaching.
While a bit of a nomad, I hail from Michigan, and graduated from Central Michigan University with a BS in Environmental Studies, Biology, and Religious Studies. My MS in Environmental Humanities was earned from the University of Utah.
I grew to understand the importance of place through spending some time living and playing in North Carolina & the bayous of Louisiana (directly after the BP oil spill). Inspiration finds me in natural landscapes and honest, open-hearted dialogue.
