I have a deep passion for justice and for the protection of God's creation, and I have been blessed with the opportunity to work for over 25 years on environmental and human rights issues within the community of faith. Originally from Chile, I see myself as a "citizen of the World" with a strong commitment to global and sustainable development. I have a BA in International relations from George Washington University, a master's degree in international development from American University, and completed the course of work for a master's degree in community and regional planning from the University of British Columbia.
My husband and I have three adult children and a couch-potato pup who is king of the household. In early September, we welcomed with much joy our first grandchild.
