The Fetzer Institute
I want our mission to be accessible to everyone! I love talking to others about our work, but more importantly, I love learning more about how others, beyond our staff and partners, are helping to build a more loving world.
I came to Kalamazoo 26 years ago to study communications at Western Michigan University. I’ve never strayed far from here since then. This city has strong gravity!
These are a few of my favorite things: My dear sweet husband, dear friends and family, all things music, art, a good Monte Cristo sandwich, thrift stores, strong black coffee, kind strangers, and archaic video games. I sing with a few bands and recently branched out into solo singing and songwriting. I practice Buddhism and have a daily meditation practice. I dislike exercise, but I do it twice a day because it helps me stay centered and focused.
