Please share what kind of information or experience led you to first consider changing your diet?

I was brought up eating a 'healthy' diet of plants, legumes and meat but always preferred vegetarian dishes. Reading The Kind Diet made be aware of the cruelty and illogical steps involved in dairy, egg and meat production. I found Colleen Patrick -Goudreu's podcasts and immediately 'woke up' and have been vegan since.

Vegan Carolina is predominantly an outreach-based group. Which cities/regions of North Carolina are you interested in helping with leafleting/outreach?

Apex...yes, though I haven't tried leafleting yet :)

What types of outreach do you prefer to engage in?

Education, food samples, movie screenings. I will soon be a World Peace Diet Facilitator and hope to start a discussion group close to home.


I transitioned to veganism after learning about the violence and negative environmental impact involved in animal foods/products. I am yoga teacher and also work in healthcare.
