As the self-proclaimed “Little Green Goddess”, I strive to create a more sustainable world through a combination teaching of both zero waste homesteading and a vegan lifestyle.
To back-pedal a bit, I was born in the tropical island of Trinidad and Tobago and the salt of the ocean must have stuck to my soul with my very first breath. The wind through the palm trees awoke a divine love of the outdoors that would travel with me as my mother re-married and moved us up to St. Louis, Missouri in the U.S..
As I got older, I remember teaching myself to climb to the top of the maple tree that adorned our large front yard. It would be sundown before I ever decided to come down. The view from that tree formed my opinion of the world around me. My mother must have shared the same affinity to nature as I, for as I sat atop my tree- she grew a pretty bed of sunflowers and summer vegetables in the backyard whilst allowing my younger sister to play with the long wriggling worms beneath her feet.
I believe it was the daily hours I was encouraged to spend outside as a child that, for me, changed nature from a world we merely traveled through to get to the next place into a world that was the very fabric of my spirit.
Now, I am an accomplished world traveler with 12 countries below my belt and have been able to see the global misfortunes that have befallen the beloved ground we walk on. Through my short adventure into organic permaculture farming and years of work with the ethically and environmentally sound company of LUSH to back me, I grew curious and wanted to help the general public with learning to manage the chaos and mass destruction we force upon the earth each day.
