Life is full and I'm grateful for it. I'm a Jackie of All Trades. A full-time mama of 2 growing sons, a lot of my work has been in teaching - women's studies and art history, museum and art gallery education and programming, fitness instruction and training, child care, yoga. I'm a people-lover with an introverted streak. I'm passionate about human healing through community and creativity. It seems to me that our health and the planet's are one, and that we can do much better. I'm devoted to the arts and seek cultural expression and the outdoors wherever I go.
