Hi! I’m Andrea, mom, authenticity junkie, lover of wilderness and creator of Simple Wisdom Within.
I created Simple Wisdom Within with the belief that we each carry within us the capacity for living with wisdom and that there are simple practices we can engage in to access and strengthen the wise part of ourselves. I’ve been working with people for many years to help them change personal and cultural patterns that keep them from living in alignment with their mission and values. I am called to offer my work at the intersection of social and environmental justice and personal healing so that together we can actively work to heal the legacy of trauma and inequality that formed our country. Now is the time for giving all we’ve got to healing and repair.
I’m committed to helping you engage your own wisdom in your daily life and live with a deep sense of connection and meaning. With my blog and one-on-one mentoring, I share the insights and tools I use to create a life-long practice of healing that works to stop traumatic patterns from being passed forward.
When I’m not working with clients you can find me dragging my teenager outside for mandatory nature adventures, reading, writing, cooking meals from my local farms and food co-op, and having deep conversations with dear friends. In the past I’ve worked as a high school language arts teacher, created nature connected curriculum for young children, studied systems thinking and sustainability in grad school, and promoted fair trade products from women’s cooperatives around the world.
I’m so glad you’re here! Let’s build a wiser world, together.
