I was born and raised in Mendocino County; my childhood was spent outdoors and with books. I graduated from Mountain Meadow Waldorf School (now WSMC) in 1992. Since then I have lived in a Zen Monastary, Guatemala, Santa Cruz, New Mexico and Willits. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Culture, Ecology and Sustainable Community. I have worked for an Intentional Community, in classrooms, offices and commercial kitchens of all sorts, as a Natural Builder and as a mother. In my work I am passionate about supporting individuals towards working effectively within larger organizations that operate out of reverence for the spiritual nature of life, and whose goals are social health and renewal. My children both attend WSMC: Indigo, like many 8th grade Waldorf students, synthesizes in a unique way, years of learning and practice, daily astounding me with artistic talent and social emotional acuity; Salvio, entering Class 4 & 5 is a voracious reader of history and an exemplary athlete whose passion for organized sports ignites mine. Working here brings together almost all of my passions and deeply held convictions in a way that is deeply satisfying. I am thrilled to work with fantastic colleagues in service to the children of our future.
I most like to be in wild places and with my family.
My best friends are farmers and spiritual seekers.
Cooking and serving excellent food to my friends and family is a great love of mine.
