Mon histoire

I am dedicated to the eradication of abuse at ALL levels. My commitment to social justice probably began when I was approximately eleven years old; I saw "Life" magazine photographs of children in the diamond mines of various African countries. These children were MY age and younger, yet they were hardly sitting in the comfort of my "safe suburban home" (to borrow loosely form The Clash). Not only did I vow to never wear diamonds, I also decided to do whatever I could to better the conditions of all who live on Earth.

Growing up during the Vietnam War, and being blessed with parents who taught my younger sister and I how to garden and compost, and that our companion animals were part of the family, I learned that this concept was not limited to humans, but applied to all beings as well as the environment. I began on the vegetarian path in the mid-1980s, and have been fully vegan since 2001.

I do what I do because I do not believe in hurting or killing others for my own comfort or convenience. I put my conscience and my words into tangible, efficient, and effective ACTION; my purpose in this Universe is to speak out and advocate for those who cannot defend themselves against abuse and injustice, regardless of age, species, gender identity, or any other man-made, divisive factors. I believe in truth and intangible beauty and hope and justice. I believe in exercising kindness in the face of utter brutality, and I have a profound respect for INNOCENCE.

My educational background and employment experience are diverse; I excel at research, facilitating partnerships, community/educational outreach, and conflict resolution. I am adept at learning new concepts and technologies, and I greet new challenges and obstacles with enthusiasm.
