Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
I currently have my roots sunk in the deep hardwood forests of the Appalachian Hill Country in Ohio. One government representative put the following on a gran application...She is a RN who lives green. :-)

Broadwell Neighborhood (moving toward Transition Broadwell)

Transition US

Transition United States

Transition Culture
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
The Transition Initiatives model offers us a guide not only to greater self-sufficiency and interdependence but also to a bottom-up/top-down grassroots approach that represents a paradigm shift.
I am interested because I believe it offers the ticket to this fun adventure into unknown territory.
I came to Transition Whatcom after meeting some of your members on Transition US.
I have fond memories that hearken back (70s) to my hitchhiking and apple picking days out in your neck of the woods. I was also honored to meet Peter Cady when he was visiting Orcas Island and my memories of the Mt. Baker hot springs bring a grin to my chubby by face.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
Mostly I would like to bring friendship, commraderie and use this linkage in support of your efforts and to strengthen our cross-country connections.
My connections thus far with TW members has been related to the heart and soul, as well as transportation, aspects of Equine Therapy; Emergency Radio communication systems and governmental planning and response efforts.

I am thankful to have apparently amassed quite a few interests, skills, talents and resources in this arena over the past 35 yrs.

I will be happy to share whatever I have with you that may be of interest and/or of benefit to you.

I probably won't be checking in here a whole lot so feel free to connect with me via Transition US, Transition Ohio or write me at

I wish you all the best and thank you for your efforts!
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
I reside in the virtual neighborhood via the websites noted above; come visit sometime!
Your Personal Website (if you have one)
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
I love the question "In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?" I also think it's a very good idea to include the option to provide a short answer about why someone wants to join this site.

At one of the primary site admins for Transition Ohio I am always looking for input, ways to improve the site, etc. I welcome any feedback you might care to share with us as well.

Yea Mamaka you are here!
Welcome to another watershed green-ning site, my new wise co-pilot friend! Sending you smiles. Next time a plane buzzes me in the garden I'll think of our pilot days!
And you know that I deeply know there is nothing sweeter than the forests, meadows, rivers of the Applachian Hill Country!
I grewup just upriver from you!
