A wise man can do no better than to turn from the churches and look up through the airy majesty of the wayside trees with exultation, with resignation, at the unconquerable unimplicated sun.

Political Chair / Secretary

Telephone: 407-657-9582

Information: I have been privileged to be a Sierra Club activist for over 20 years. I started my life as an activist after I learned about the plight of baby seals being killed for their fur and dolphins caught in tuna fishing nets. When I was collecting signatures for petitions asking Congress to reauthorize the Marine Mammal Protection act, the Sierra Club of Central Florida not only welcomed me with open arms, they embraced my issue as well. Sierra Club is my family.

Over the years, I have fought for preservation of the Econlockhatchee River Basin and I serve as the Lake Jesup Issue Chair. Our goals are to try to restore Lake Jesup, the largest lake in Seminole County. I enjoy lobbying in Washington, D.C, and Tallahassee for Sierra Club.

I believe in electing “green candidates” and I am active in the political process, serving as Political Chair. It is exciting when we get to help elect a political candidate that truly cares about the environment.

One issue that I am passionate about is population. Be it domestic or international, I believe that human population has the highest impact on the world’s environment. I have been privileged to journey to Madagascar with the Sierra Club Global Population Program. While there, we learned about the plight of the Malagasy people. These precious people want increased access to voluntary family planning options in order to plan the size of their families in order to save their county’s imperiled ecology.

I love doing outreach to share the joys of organic gardening and alternatives to pesticides and other harmful chemicals.

I am a Registered Nurse in the Hospice field. Another issue that I am working on is to encourage the change of how people and institutions dispose of their medications due to the effects upon our waterways so in this way, I can meld my love of Sierra policies with my profession.

My hobbies include organic gardening, swimming, bicycling with my husband, taking care of my beloved pets and science fiction.

“There are many who are uncomfortable with what we have created. It is almost a biological rebellion, a profound revulsion against the planned communities, the programming, the sterilized artfully balanced atmospheres. They hunger for an Eden…where spring comes.” -Spock to Kirk -”The Way to Eden”- Star Trek, the Original Series
