I attended my first workshop with Joanna Macy in 1984, and currently serve as her executive assistant. I have traveled extensively with Joanna, participated in dozens of Macy’s workshops and am a facilitator of the Work That Reconnects. I have been involved in work for justice, peace, nuclear disarmament, nonviolence, and ecological sustainability for more than 35 years. Prior to becoming Joanna Macy’s personal assistant, I worked for 25 years as the co-director of the St. Barbara Province Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation Office. My husband Terry and I are the parents of five children and the co-founders of Canticle Farm community in East Oakland.
