From eating alligator to being vegan...


This presentation would mention experiences before becoming vegan and life now as a vegan. I might highlight influential people, dishes, and books that continue to move me through this journey. It might also consist of favorite vegan places here in Portland.

Born in San Diego I lived in Hawaii from the time I was 10 until I was 18. I moved to Oregon for college and have lived here in the Portland area off and on since that time in 1997. I am currently completing a Masters in Education degree in School Counseling. I enjoy being outside and going to athletic events, concerts and art shows. I love to volunteer and plan events. I have a tendency to engage in high risk activities such as skydiving and bungy jumping. I am passionate about traveling, working with non-profits and being an advocate and activist.
