What are your reasons for joining the group?

I have family in SC and will attend any meet up events when I am visiting! I love that your group is there.

Are you vegan? vegetarian? veg-curious? How long has it been?

I have been Vegetarian for 42 years and Vegan for 35 years. When I became vegetarian, I didn't know that word. I just stopped eating meat because I care about animals and their wellbeing. When I stopped using all animal products I did not know the word Vegan, even though I was one :) I stopped eating dairy when I witness the pain and crying of mother cows on a small dairy farm when their male babies were taken from them at only a day old to be sent to a veal facility.

What is your favorite place to dine out, and your favorite meal there?

Thai Vegan in Albuquerque, NM and Native Foods in Boulder, CO.


For over 30 years I have worked at aligning my values with my daily choices and being a voice for those with no voice. Inviting people to a caring community rather than fighting. We live in New Mexico and organize the local vegan meet-up here.
