I feel a passion for the work I do and the lives I touch. Prior to completing my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in psychology, I traveled, allowing life to be my university. I spent time in India, learning from Gurumayi Chidvilasananda and the people I met. I lived in Europe on and off for 10 years, exploring what it is to be human and discovering the commonalities and differences across cultures.
Today, the wild is my sanctuary. I live in the mountains among bears, mountain lions, deer, and my dog, Kena. I love hiking, kayaking, biking, and doing nothing in the sun. The beach is my second home, with images of coral reefs and fish swimming in my head for solace.
