I’ve been a keen student of building a new “life-infrastructure” following our Big Move from (the U.S. state of) Florida to southern Portugal a few months ago. There was never any doubt where my husband and I would land in this spectacularly diverse country since our nonnegotiable climate preference is living among orange trees and flower blooms in January.
Everything for us follows from that! I’m looking forward to covering my new community. My passion is meeting and introducing those focused on solutions for kinder, gentler and more conscious relationships with each other and with our environment.
As a long-time journalist, I’ve been all over the map in writing and reporting in the U.S. I’ve worked with National Public Radio based in Chicago, assorted television stations and, as a clinical nutritionist, writing extensively on integrative and alternative health. My interest in health and wellbeing extends to mental health. As an emotions therapist, I blend Western medicine with Eastern traditions teaching people emotional recovery and resiliency and am bringing this work to the Algarve.
