I am passionate about:
Social Justice, Art, Family, Using our hands whenever possible, Getting messy, and the rights of Women and Girls throughout the world (It all fits together)
A little known fact about me is:
My grandfather taught me to make toy boats and kites from scraps of wood and paper. I learned that children in Zambia still make their kites the same way.

"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. --Henry David Thoreau"
I am passionate about creativity, and have spent my life working on ways to help others find the creativity within themselves. I believe in assuming the best from the people I work with, and patiently listen and watch and learn from them. I am fascinated with the different ways people learn and hear and communicate and collaborate. I have spent my life working with young children and old women, the wealthy and the vulnerable, and all different kinds of learners. Everyone has something to add: it is up to me to find that special something and to weave it into my life.
