About Me

Lifelong learner. Reader. Listener. Mother. Peace advocate and activist. Long-time interest in creating and developing online communities of activists who can be motivated for action in specific, targeted areas.

This quote reminded me of WorldPulse women: "Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader, not the fact that it’s raining, but the feeling of being rained upon," E. L. Doctorow. Supporting philanthropy and nonprofits. Amplifying the voices of women, youth, and underserved communities. New opportunities in education, particularly online learning. Social justice. Clean living. Raising my children: the lights of my life. Reading, writing, editing, social media communication, the nonprofit sphere.
