Hi! I have been a water, climate change and environmental educator for more than 30 years working with K-12 schools and with policy makers in more than 60 countries. Today, I am writing and developing ECOMASTERS books and interactive learning materials for kids, with a focus on girls. I am consulting on a global small grants program working with 40 schools worldwide on environmental action and development of multiverse based interactive Scobaverse game which is working to engage kids in mapping local underwater environments, starting with the Maldives. I am a storyteller and 'connector and pollenator' as an eePRO K-12 moderator, I look forward to learning and helping to share your stories.

She has documented and evaluated water, sanitation and hygiene, environmental education, climate change adaptation and child participation initiatives and activities in close to seventy (70) of countries worldwide. As an advocate for the children of the world, she worked as a driving force toward the recognition of children and youth as a constituency to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), what is now known as YOUNGO, and is the author of a number of publications which both raise awareness of policymakers to the critical importance of considering young people in emerging policy, to train youth leaders who work with children and to raise awareness and bridge policy gaps between education, environment and participation. In practical terms, she is very pleased and proud to have assembled a team of brilliant young leaders throughout the world who are working with children as part of Earth Child Institute’s Global Action Classroom project and has learned volumes about children as a single mom of three amazing grown children, Stacey (age 35, Lindsey (age 33) and Elliot Goodman Lee (age 29) and grandmother of Emma, age 9, Sophia, age 3, Daxton, age 2 and Luka, 7mos.
