About Me

I’m returning to writing after spending years as an educator.  Although I’m most interested in topics like education, climate change and building collaborative communities, my interests are wide and varied.  Writing that requires research gives me an opportunity to continue learning, which has always been one of the joys of the job.

Experience

Researcher and writer

Climate Steps is a Washington, D.C. based non-profit focused on providing options, or “steps,” for people who would otherwise be overwhelmed with concern about global warming and confused about what to do on a personal level. Topics I’ve written about: tool libraries, tiny houses, green school curriculum. Currently, I’m managing a subpage devoted to strengthening communities, and I’ve written two subpages for that, one on food and another on finance.
