I am a writer, consultant, and mother currently living in Portland, Oregon. My interests range from photography to education. I have been an advocate for children, families, equal rights, social justice and world community building. I have consulted in the development of intervention programs to uplift at risk children. I am an avid lover of the outdoors, hiking, climbing, skiing and wilderness trekking. I have incorporated outward bound activities into the programs I designed such as ropes courses, rock climbing, vision quest treks. My work started in the the late 1980's working with Gangs in Seattle and Tacoma Washington. These children of all colors and nationalities, has instilled in me a passion to assure that the brilliance and hope I see in each one of them is protected, safe and empowered to shine on our communities. #Social Justice #Equality #BLM #Education #Health #Quality of Life #Gun Control #Stop Sexual Assault #LGBTQ
