I am a writer embedded in the wonder of nature. In my work, I explore health and wholeness in the natural world as a center of equity and joy in human societies.

In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?

Nature is my mentor, teaching ways of knowing, adapting, and thriving. Ever new, always a source of wonder, nature is both my inspiration and my focus. Our first home, our nurturance and guide, nature is where I look for the work that needs to be done and the truths that need to be told.

What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?

To live in a world that is whole in its relationships and ecological function is at the center of why I do what I do. It is the reason to educate, to shed light, to persevere, to celebrate victories and pursue the work yet to be done.
