Since my head is often in the clouds, it's good to keep my feet on the ground!


Background Information

I grew up in the woods of Northern Minnesota on a small country farm. Wandering along wooded pathways traveled by white-tailed deer and exploring the shores of small lakes and streams sparked my curiosity and enhanced my appreciation for the natural world from a very young age. My introverted nature seemed a match for many hours spent in quiet observation. Having two parents that valued honest relationships, education, working hard, and helping out your neighbor was also an influence for which I am most grateful. And perhaps it was growing up third in a family of two girls and two boys that taught me the rudiments of getting along with others. During my college years in the early 1970's as I consciously prepared myself for a teaching career, I was unconsciously preparing myself for life. Although I did in fact teach elementary grades for a few years, most of my adult career has been spent in the human services field, most recently as a family outreach social worker. Having a family of my own (I am married, with two grown children) and a personal stake in the future has made my early desires to live in harmony with the Earth and with each other that much more important. This, I believe, is what drives my life and my creative process.
