I’m a writer and journalist; an adjunct lecturer; a speaker and workshop leader; a consultant, a feminist, an activist (decidedly left), a political and social justice advocate, a community volunteer, a traveler, and a “woman of a certain age.”

The topics I write about – which are central to my passion — include women and gender (ranging from reproductive health and human rights to conflict resolution and more: Everything is a woman’s issue!); primary health care and health promotion; sensible, sustainable, and community-based international development; and the social and political events and ideas that shape our world.

For more details about my articles, books, and creative writing, my teaching topics and venues, my workshops, and my international consulting work, please explore this website. Thanks for visiting and if you have any questions, please get in touch!
