It is always on my mind; I seem to be constantly keeping track of the resources I consume and how things are so wildly out of balance in our society.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I am passionate about local food, native biodiversity, and sustainability. But I am stuck in the cycle of commuting by car to work, living in rentals, and just trying to get by. I want to get unstuck!!
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I have masters degrees in soil science and applied mathematics. I also have a bachelors degree in chemical engineering and work as a permit engineer for the Northwest Clean Air Agency. I love chemistry, which comes through in my cooking and soapmaking endeavors. I also have a three-year-old son who teaches me new things every day.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?

Hi Erica! I look forward to connecting! Thanks for getting involved on TW. I've forwarded our message to your email, and I understand about unopened emails..
.I have mine set for an extended automatic reply since I get so far behind.
I almost majored in soils, but back then the universities only offered the study of dead soil, as in no life, just the mineral/chemical non-living matter....so much more is now known on compost and still the mysteries of life remain!
You're welcome to call and come visit sometime...walk/work/relax or play.
yep, I thought that might be you. we met in BreakThru. I thought you were going to Montana to study biochar? you're right, I think we do have a lot in common, and I remember thinking so at the time, although I don't remember telling you. Glad to be getting to know you more.
