In 2000 she moved to the Isle of Skye, Scotland to work with youth in developing their leadership abilities and also helped create a museum in the environment which has helped locals and tourists to learn more about the place they live and feel connected. Overall she’s an idea person, bursting with projects she’d like to take to the next step. Her major concern is closing the loop on garbage so that we can keep our land, air and water healthy for generations to come.
