[[File:Lizkimbroughprofile.jpg|thumb|left|Me Liz in Arcata, CA.]]== Liz "Isabell" Kimbrough ==
I am 2010 Appropedia's newest '''[[Appropedia:Travel_Internships|Travel Intern]]''' and am happy to be a part of a greater global movement for change. I want to listen, learn, laugh, share, and lend two helping hands!
{{-}}
===About me:Bio===I am a recent graduate of [[Humboldt State University]] where I studied Botany. I am particularly interested in conservation biology with a focus in the neotropics. I hope to study ecosystems and help to develop tools to protect the land while supporting and empowering local communities. I also have a passion for “alternative” healing and am a practitioner of holistic massage, Reiki (energy work), herbalism, meditation and yoga. I enjoy singing, playing music, writing poetry and climbing trees.
Liz is currently a writing intern at the environmental news site Mongabay.com. and a community organizer for WildMadagascar.com. She is excited about combining her passions for science, environmental issues, writing and adventure!
===My Role After graduating in 2010 with a B.S. in Botany from [[Humboldt State University]], Liz worked as a field assistant in the Peruvian Amazon, served as the first travel intern for Appropedia:===,org., attended a yoga teacher training, conducted rare plant surveys on Pacific Northwest timber lands, taught preschool and worked as an Au Pair in Torino, Italy. She is now living and writing in California.
I am both honored and excited to be involved with ===Appropedia! ===Beginning in June Lis served as the first Appropedia [[Appropedia:Travel_Internships|Travel Intern]]. In 2010 I will be visiting Liz visited intentional/green communities and projects in South and Central America. My with the following goals are:
# To document positive functional aspects of the community /project to post on Appropedia. These aspects may be technological, social, or structural, etc.
#* Appropedia intends to establish a program that would link travelers with communities or projects focused around appropriate technology and intentional living. Travelers would be given an opportunity visit their country or region of interest and to have an in-depth experience there with an intentional community or appropriate technology project. As an alternative to volunteer travel programs in which the volunteers are contributing labor, Appropedia volunteer travelers would be asked to make contributions to the Appropedia database, updating older entries or creating primary documentation about the community they are visiting.
===Travel itinerary===
 
===My flexible and evolving travel itinerary:===
I welcome suggestions and invitations to communities and projects in these areas!
