Hello day coaching, Owner & Life Coach
Do you have a specific area of sustainability that interests you the most? Why do you CARE about that specific area? (i.e. energy, water, waste, transportation, etc.)
I am specifically interested in companies who are dedicated to creating products from environmental waste and creating sustainable fashion. I am especially interested in companies who are able to use their power to clean up the oceans and recreate usable items from the waste. Not only does this protect our waters but also the animal life that resides in them. Often these animals are forgotten about because they are unseen. There are only so many water ecosystems that are sustainable for certain animal populations and we are continuing to cause harms to these ecosystems. Companies that make it their mission to reverse this impact have a special place in my heart.
What interests / excites you most about being involved in (Women in) sustainability? I am most excited about learning from and being part of the other WIS community members’ journey. There are so many incredible members doing AMAZING work and it inspires me daily to be better.
Finish this statement: I CARE Because … Though I may not have the most sustainable lifestyle, I am always trying to be more aware and conscious of the sustainable choices I make. There is no going back to not caring or bringing awareness to my actions.
How do you like to give back to your community? Why is this important to you?
I volunteer my time at local water clean up events and the Denver Animal Shelter, as well as sharing my life coaching practice with the community. Giving back and volunteering my time connects me with the community and reminds me of the importance of the space and people around us.
What are one or two of your favorite sustainability tips or tricks that you like to share with others?
If you don’t already compost, I highly recommend it. It cuts down on your trash tremendously and you can easily sign up for it in the city of Denver.
If you have a lot of difficult to recycle items, sign up for Ridwell. They are a great service that offers additional recycling in such an easy to use system.
What inspires you? I am constantly inspired by the WIS community and by others who seek to be and do better. We can all make simple choices, whether that’s to wave at another person or utter a friendly hello, that will change our world one action at a time. If you are doing this, being better, you inspire me!
