Of course, I have more than one resume, but the main link is to my 3-page writing resume.
My husband and I and our two cats, Rocky and Sassy, live in a 1986 Ford Honey RV, and spent the 18 months living traveling the western U.S. before deciding to put down roots in Eugene, Oregon in 2013.
I am the founder of the Poetry Street Project, a literary and arts magazine featuring creative works from people who have experienced homelessness, and would like to resurrect this project in Eugene.
I was an Americorps volunteer twice--once with the American Red Cross of the Quad Cities in disaster relief during 2001 (yes, I was a responder to 9/11 and spent three weeks in New York), and once with Friends of Vanderveer Botanical Park taking photos and cataloging plants and trees. I was also a long-time volunteer with the Quad City Labyrinth project and I still walk labyrinths when I get a chance. I was president of the Scott Community College Environmental Club and won the coveted Hayduke Award.
I am interested in sustainable living, organic gardening, social justice, progressive thinking. I believe in the Golden Rule. I am fascinated with ancient history, archaeology, anthropology, and religious studies. I believe in Atlantis, fairies, angels and ghosts. I like to cook and entertain. I read Ode, Utne Reader, Mother Earth News, Organic Gardening, National Geographic, Ancient American and Archaeology magazines.
I paint, make jewelry, create fiber art (mostly crochet pieces), and paint with acrylics. I am an active volunteer with the Emerald Art Center.
I have lived in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Florida, upstate New York, Illinois, Texas, Arizona, Iowa, and now Oregon. I have been overseas once--to Ecuador. I like to travel to sacred places--even little, tiny, local ones like small Marian shrines or reputed Native American sites.
