Every day I like to focus on living and acting with kindness and compassion. I am passionate about social justice and working to challenge systems of oppression. I love Personal Medicine because it illuminates the power in our own hands, it is a beautiful, gentle and transformational way to help ourselves and others. As a Certified Personal Medicine Coach I am delighted to be part of a Conspiracy of Hope. In my day job I am Project Manager for a provocative project finding new ways to address stigma and discrimination and to Live Different, Think Different and Be Different. I have been privileged to work in some form of 'social work' for the past 40 years. My work has always been a political activity and a creative art.
