Originally from Egypt, I live in Kansas City where I make my home with three daughters who daily inspire me to evolve. My life trajectory has taken many paths: I have worked as an English teacher, a stay-at-home mom, a farmhand, and a farm to school coordinator. I have worked in environmental education and green infrastructure. I'm currently an herbalism apprentice.
What has been a constant through all those vocations? Writing! I am an award-winning internationally published writer active in Kansas City’s writing scene. I serve on the editorial team of Kansas City Voices, conduct writing workshops and am a recent attendee of the Bread Loaf Environmental Writers Conference. I also blog about environmental issues from the intersection of justice and spirituality and provide ecological workshops based on my research, writing and communion with nature. What am I discovering through my rich, varied experiences?
The imagination at play is emancipatory medicine through which we create community: with ourselves, each other and Earth.
