About Me

I enjoy the privileges of a retiree in selecting my avocations. My personal passion is the out-of-doors; I hike often and lead hikes in the San Francisco Bay Area and the California Sierra. My human passion is promoting gender equity/gender rights. I coach for a girls' running program locally. Internationally, I monitor several women's organizations. I am most active for World Pulse. Every day I am inspired by the efforts of my female advocates around the world who are finding strong voices through the forums of World Pulse. Hiking Maintaining optimism about challenges to our planet and its people Education

My Vision

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