I grew up in northwestern Kansas and spent the first part of my life in Kansas and Arkansas. I later found my way to seminary, where I learned how deeply liberating it can be to name our shared experiences and tell our stories as an act of resistance to oppression. I fell in love with the wisdom sources that nurtured my growth and rooted themselves in collective transformation, like popular education; post-colonial theory; womanist, feminist, and mujerista communities; queer theory; and process theology. I moved to the borderlands of Southern Arizona, where I witnessed people committing incredible acts of courage in an environment of fear and hostility. In Tucson I worked as the Education Director for a small non-profit organization called BorderLinks, using experiential learning methods to engage people from across the U.S. about the border and immigration issues. I moved to Wichita in 2014 to be closer to my family after many years of living and growing in other places. I soon connected with lots of folks here who are working to transform our community, and I continue to meet more passionate people in Wichita who are committed to justice. I am actively involved with the ICT-Army of Artists and The Seed House ~ Casa de la Semilla and I serve as a board member of SoCe Life. I am passionate about celebrating and nurturing the life of our communities in Wichita and in Kansas. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (520)396.0633.
