"Life is both dreadful and wonderful." -Thich Nhat Hanh Hi! I am the Author/Creator of Sentient. I have been writing fiction and poetry since I was 7 years old. I knew since childhood that writing was my reason for being on this earth. That later melded with a commitment to helping others after I decided to become a Social Worker. I currently run my own business as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. My Sentient project was born out of my passion to unite creativity with community. Alongside Sentient, I am also developing a full-length novel titled, "The Personification of Zen", that is currently in drafting stages. I am a vegan with a passion for addressing food insecurity and hunger. I love to spend time with others, playing drums and rock climbing, among other things.
