About Me: I retired from a career in education two years ago. My first years of retirement have been "all about me." The book Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn called me to action. I look for ways to support efforts to lessen the oppression of women worldwide from my small, but privileged, corner of the world.

My Passions: Hiking

My Challenges: Maintaining optimism about challenges to our planet and its people

My Vision for the Future: World citizens will make decisions for the seventh generation, based on the native American tradition.

My Areas of Expertise: Education
