1. What do you see as your primary work at this stage of your life?

Earning my Masters of Science and worked towards PhD in Biomedical Engineering, provided me with a solid foundation in the biological sciences and engineering systems. More recently, I earned my Master in Fine Arts in Interior Architecture and Design, with a strong focus on sustainability, human and planetary wellness and regenerative design strategies. I am also Living Future accredited (LFA), and have earned my LEED AP and Well AP accreditations. I am very interested in meeting and working with like minded professionals who have a similar mindset and intent, and are interested in working towards a better future globally.

2. What role do you see as yours to play?

My diverse academic background sets the stage for meaningful collaboration with others in the regenerative field.

3. What goals or aims do you have in regard to the above?

My goal is to become deeply intrenched in the world of regenerative practice, and would like to utilize the Regenesis Institute as a spring board and holding ground for collaboration, networking and actuation.

4. Where do you feel your next arenas for personal growth are?

My main areas for personal growth are to remain open and take risk, thereby seeing the transform of my foundational knowledge by understanding real life experiences within the realm of regenerative practice.

5. And for professional growth?

My professional growth lays in the transformation of my academic skills into real life strategy and actuation, through the collaboration and networking with other regenerative professionals.

6. What have you invested in to get you where you are?

I have invested many years, resources in my deep commitment to pursuing my intellectual curiosity, in the realms of Biomedical Engineering, Interior Architecture and Design, Sustainability and Regeneration. I really enjoy, in my free time during hikes in nature, reading and listening to podcast and books on sustainability, food systems and regenerative agriculture, human wellness.

7. What fields of learning and which thinkers have been important in your life?

Life systems, biomimicry, regenerative agriculture, climate crisis and strategies for carbon sequestration, among others.
