I have always been a curious traveller.
At fifteen years old I worked as an Ordinary Seaman aboard a deep sea ship off of Alert during September 1973 – the ship was held captive for weeks by 2.2-meter-thick ice – now that area is ice free in September. The experience bonded me to Earth in powerful ways and I became her student.
Since then, I have explored oceans, forests, mountains and academia to better understanding the world around me.
During 2018, three climate change variability events directly impacted my life and forced me to recall Earth’s lessons.
Heeding those lessons, and acting against the concerns of friends and popular knowledge of climate change I relocated from British Columbia to Nova Scotia during 2019 so as to ensure a better quality of life for my myself and my grandchildren.
