This blog is a place to share and explore the inspiring, useful and fun ideas and examples of the choices, questions, tools, and actions we make as we navigate how to live “everyday sustainable.”
I’m drawn to the everyday things in life.
When I was 16, I had the fortune of spending three weeks in India (on a Girls Scout program, no less!) and I believe that immersion into a country and country so vividly distinct from my own Midwest suburban childhood catalyzed the incipient anthropologist in me, and a lifelong interest in observing and learning how people navigate their worlds in their everyday lives.
I find myself filtering the everyday through this lens of “everyday sustainable” as I explore broad interests in personal health, caregiving and aging, quantified self (QS), energy efficiency and sustainability, and delightful user experience and design.
I’ve worked in a variety of roles–user researcher, product manager, marketing strategist, ad account manager, health and wellness practitioner and coach–with agencies, startups and Fortune 100 companies. I studied Social Anthropology (BA, Harvard; MA, Stanford), and have had additional training in Acupressure/Traditional Chinese Medicine and Environmental Leadership.
Please join me in this exploration by sharing your perspective!
