The Real Human About Version:
Welcome to my professional portfolio site. If you’re looking for my blog or coaching services, check out Quarter Moon Living.
I grew up on the central coast of California, and I fostered a love for the natural world at an early age. My family lived without electricity and I surrounded by redwoods and only minutes from the beach. My mom is an avid gardener, my dad a woodcutter. I have worked in a variety of environmental related jobs, ranging from education to public policy.
I use my knowledge gained from my own life experiences, my formal education, spiritual practices, and the wisdom learned from mother nature to create engaging articles and content for like-minded businesses. My keen observation skills and ability to see beauty in all places allow telling visual stores with beautiful photography.
I am an INFJ, a highly-sensitive person, and a total introvert. Currently, I live in Sacramento, California, but my husband and I are in the early stages of searching for a rural homestead. When I’m not looking at real estate ads, making a mess in the kitchen, or sewing something out of linen, I’m out hiking with my mutt, Stella, or reading on the couch with my cats, Bacon and Gaia.
