Hi! My name is Shanie Matthews. I am a United States-born-and-raised citizen of the world devoted to inspiring sustainability, community passed-on prosperity, and environmental awareness. I have been living in Lake Tahoe for nearing 20 years, and call it my North American home.
A freelance writer and banquet server by trade, I am also an aspiring photographer, yogi and passionate snow skier. Adventure sports, humanitarian involvement and ecotourism inspire me as well. I am also the founder and creator of a happiness advocacy website that promotes increased smiles around the globe, (email hidden).
