My mission is simple: to empower people to reflect their deepest values of compassion and wellness in their everyday choices. I believe people want to make changes to reflect these values, but they struggle with HOW to do it. Emphasizing the fact that being vegan is a means to an end rather than an end in itself, I address all aspects of living healthfully and compassionately, including eating, cooking, nutrition, ethics, animals, family dynamics, food politics, social psychology, and zero waste. I also draw upon my love of language, etymology, literature, history, film, and culture. Welcome to the journey.
