a bit about me:
I covered politics and local news for NPR partner station WJCT, out of Northeast Florida. I primarily work on First Coast Connect, a local talk show, and The Florida Roundup, a weekly syndicated program.
My scientific journalism disseminates dense scientific and medical research to a lay audience. I strive to provide adults with comprehensive research that helps them care for their children with autism.
I advocate for accessible mental healthcare, patient-led treatment, and opportunities for creative expression while healing. I believe that complementary therapies such as mindfulness mediation, yoga, art therapy, and creative movement can enhance traditional mental health care.
As an educator, I follow Rudolph Steiner’s Waldorf philosophy. I believe in honoring children’s distinct developmental stages by offering ample opportunities for play, creativity, and experiential learning. I aim to nurture my student’s heads, hearts, and hands with a curriculum that emphasizes imagination and self-responsibility.
Nurturing my student’s creativity often stirs my own imagination. I enjoy creating art that is whimsical, bright, and narrative-driven. My favorite mediums are oil pastels, acrylic paints, and charcoal pencils.
When I'm not working, I enjoy educating my community about the benefits of physiological birth and death, speaking truth to taboos, and answering the strangest questions you can come up with.
