Creative expression through writing is an integral part of my holistic approach to wellness - a movement practice for my imagination and a way to stay connected to my inner world. More importantly, I seek to use my voice on behalf of our planet-wide effort to create a harmonious, balanced future on the earth. For the past seven years, I have been a contributing writer for Dark Matter: Women Witnessing, an online magazine based in Montreal that explores how dreams and communications with the non-human world help us understand live our inseparableness from nature. You can find my work in issues #3, 5, 8, 11, 12, and current issue 16. My essays and poems can also be found in several print and online environmental journals, including Flyway,The Hopper, Dark Mountain, and Blueline Magazine, issues #38, 39, 40, 41, and current issue 44. In August 2023, I became a poet with Writing the Land Northeast, a collaborative organization that partners poets with conserved parcels of land to raise awareness about the importance of land conservation. I also participate in annual national poetry month celebrations in Randolph and Montpelier, Vt. where my work is included in Poem Town anthologies.
