Service Description

After spending a year documenting my experiences while studying throughout India, I came to find that my writing voice flourishes when given the opportunity to 'speak' on issues of education, travel, Eastern philosophy, mindfulness, nature, and anything that has to do with a holistic perspective. During my time in India, I wrote extensively about the difficulties of globalized education in small rural villages and the importance of integrating curriculum that preserves the local environment and language. Through studying yoga for more than ten years, I have found a natural resonance when writing about the process of its practice. My master's degree was concentrated in 'holistic education' (educating the 'whole' child), and I have taught in New Zealand, India, and the U.S., so I have a fresh angle to contribute to alternative education pieces. My admiration of nature and desire to live a healthy life is also reflected in my writing.

My areas of interest include:
education
'green' ideas
yoga
Eastern philosophy
mindfulness
gardening
sustainability
environment
alternative education
holistic perspective
travel
India
nature


Writing is my full-time job. My only other responsibilities include a few hours a week volunteering at various schools throughout the Seattle area, so I am ready to write!
