My career as a DV/SA Social Worker/Admin ended with a car accident, and then being struck by a car 2 years later, as a pedestrian. Lifelong environmentalist and social justice activist. Currently severely disabled, but active on citizen boards and commissions with Metro and City of Beaverton. Former Co-Chair of Unite Oregon Washington County Leadership Council.
I grew up in the suburban johnson creek watershed, with no deep sense of place. My adult life has been an exploration of what it means to be from here, how my relationships define my edges, and what my own gift to Cascadia could be. I am excited to realize new connections develop my sensitivity to the subtlety of our bioregion.
