===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 neotropicsPh. I hope to study ecosystems and help to develop tools to protect the land while supporting and empowering local communitiesD. I also have a passion for “alternative” healing and am a practitioner of holistic massageCandidate, ReikiEcology, herbalism, meditation and yoga.

===My Role with Liz Kimbrough is a PhD candidate at Tulane University in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. You can find her in New Orleans studying endophytic fungi, playing her washboard, and writing about science for mongabay.com. Liz received her BS in Botany from Humboldt State University in 2010. After graduating, Liz worked as a research assistant in the Peruvian Amazon, conducted rare plant surveys on Pacific Northwest timberlands, served as the first Travel Intern for Appropedia:===.org, worked as a tutor in Italy, taught science to kids in San Diego. Liz began interning for tropical science and conservation news site mongabay.org in July of 2012 and quickly discovered a passion for bringing science and environmental news to the public. She has written over 50 articles for the site and is the writer of the “Innovation in Tropical Forest Conservation” interview series. In addition, Liz has written for the World Conference of Science Journalists, the Public Library of Science and the Global Forest Reporting Network.
I am both honored Liz is also passionate about grant writing, editing and excited to be involved with consulting across fields.  Learn more about her writing and research on her personal website: www.ripplewriter.com ===Appropedia===Liz served as the first Appropedia [[Appropedia! :Travel_Internships|Travel Intern]]. Beginning in June 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.
