I am a woman who is wise in years yet a child at heart. A Life Long Learner and Educator, Permaculture Designer, Watershed Ecologist, Environmental Activist, Consultant, Entrepreneur and Mother.

True to my vision to be in service to the children and the planet I have taught Elementary and High School Environmental Science and Outdoor Environmental Education, Gardening and Permaculture Design with children and families for over 20 years. I had one of the first nature based Charter schools in California from 1997-2010.
I started my non profit The Artemis Project in 2012 in response to my community’s request and was grateful to respond.
We collaborate with other organizations in providing opportunities for the development of feminine community mentorship and empowerment during our summer camps, after school programs and special events.

I live a joyful life of gratitude, purpose and meaning while raising my children in the Redwood forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains, along the dreamy and dynamic banks of the mighty San Lorenzo River. I dance every day.
