After gaining appreciation for working teachers and small-town America, I became a card carrying adult interested in politics and how it affects clean food and water, rights for all people, climate, and health. I'm a lover of people, dogs, street art, farmers markets, and craft beer. I work to travel and travel to learn about different foods, people, and culture. Ping me anytime, because I'd love to hear from you. Comment on my posts and let me know anything about you. I check my pages and look forward to getting to know you.
