Welcome to my website.

I am a poet, filmmaker, gardening teacher, writing teacher, and mother of three children.  I love to read, write, speak, teach and collect words.  Because we live in an era where words are tossed back and forth carelessly, I am always looking for an antidote to the ambient state of rushed or thoughtless exchange.  I believe it is in our DNA to internalize deeply the messages we offer to each other through story.  If I could, I would prescribe every human being a daily dose of poetry.  The gift of language is not to be taken for granted; it is a vehicle for truth and beauty.
