Hometown: Sacramento, CA
August 4, 2013
I am originally from Vermont, but have been living in Arcata, CA for the past two years. I am an outdoor enthusiast and absolutely love trying new recipes.
I have been a vegetarian for over 8 years and am on my way to becoming a vegan. I am interested in SVS because it provides the opportunity to meet like minded individuals who are ethical eaters. I also hope to use SVS as a resource for learning more about vegan cooking. I would also like to learn more about different eating practices and vegan nutrition strategies.
SVS can provide a safe and friendly environment to meet and interact with other vegetarians/vegans. SVS can also provide the necessary networking and planning needed to bring together great people to share great food.
I only recently moved to the Sacramento area, after graduating from Humboldt State University. I will be starting a new position at a community health clinic in El Dorado Hills in August. I really enjoy trying new things and connecting with people over a shared meal :) I also work at a number of farmers markets for a small organic farm out of Clarksburg.
I am transitioning from vegetarian to vegan
