Bioneers

Santa Fe, NM USA


When we first started Bioneers, there was no money in it, but I didn't feel sad or burdened by it because I loved it. It made everything in me feel alive, as if I was participating in something I was born to be a part of.

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Grew up in New York City with a passion for theater.
She specifically enjoyed noncommercial, transformational theater because it challenged people's belief systems.
This form of theater would later help her build innovative social media strategies for companies like Odwalla and Seeds of Change.
Met her husband Kenny when she was 30 years old; they collaborated on a documentary called "Hoxsey: How Healing Becomes a Crime."
The documentary found success and started a movement towards new methods of alternative medicine.
She and her husband started Bioneers, a nonprofit that brings scientists together to solve environmental issues.
At one point, she started to worry that she was only serving her husband's vision, felt like her "feminine skills" were somehow lesser.
Now she sees that thought was a result of an internalized gendered bias and she pushes women to embrace these same skills.
