I’ve also participated in stormwater charrettes, attended forums and workshops, manned Foundation information booths at various seminars and spearheaded numerous grant initiatives including Camp Greening.

I am honored and humbled that Prof. Mauser entrusted me to be one of the founders of the Mauser Harmony With Nature Foundation. I feel that I am ethically and morally bound to direct the Foundation’s activities in a way that would make “Doc”, as I affectionately called him, proud. As such, I am constantly evaluating and analyzing the Foundation’s direction.  Advocating for sustainability through the the Foundation provides me with the opportunity, through education, to encourage harmony rather than discord on our planet. 

My Foundation goal for 2016 is to earn the USGBC Green Associate designation

Personal

For as long as I can remember, I have felt a strong connection and desire to protect humans, plants and animals.  As a nurse, I have witnessed firsthand the negative physical, psychological and emotional effects that an unhealthy planet can have on individuals. Clean air, decreased noise pollution, conservation of our natural resources and all other forms of sustainability help us take care of our world and each other.

I find pleasure in activities that energize me physically, mentally and spiritually, including gardening, biking, photography, power walking and meditation. I am inspired by my son Jai, and daughter Heather who through their daily efforts are lessening the earth’s carbon footprint.
