In my natural environment aka my office – hard to say whether I am preparing for class, creating poetry or working on an academic venture.
I am an intensely thoughtful and curious woman who is trying to better understand the experiences of not only the people I work with, but also myself on this wild, meaningful ride through life.
This website highlights different facets of my professional career, my creative pursuits, and my emotionally reflexive observations on life.
People are at the heart of everything I do.
Be it field work or developing the key competencies of my Health Studies students, I am using every tool in my toolbox to address our challenges as a global community and also shine a light on life’s beautiful moments.
Sometimes, individuals feel so distanced from other “types” of people, seeing them as separate due to differences in socio-economic status and cultural persuasions. They have no idea how closely interconnected and related our personal narratives really are. We are all just trying to make it with a little bit of integrity and a little bit of love. My hope is that you can see parts of yourself in some of my stories and find solace in the ways they resonate with you.
Join me on my therapeutic, educational and personal journey where we break down ivory tower traditions while healing and recognizing how close we all really are.
