Do you consider yourself a vegan or a vegetarian? How long have you been one?

Happily Vegan. Not strict for over 6 years, now strict for over 4 months - and I've never felt better.

What made you decide to become vegan/vegetarian?

Ethical concerns for the torture and slaughter of non-humans, as well as ethical concerns for the environment and human health/hunger. Factory farming is a huge public health hazard, and eating meat in general is a huge waste of food, so I think it is unethical to continue consuming flesh while pandemics and world hunger continue.

Care to share any favorite vegan recipes?

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bok Choy Boats. Just put pb&j on a bok choy leaf. YUM. Great quick breakfast or lunch.

Any suggestions for future meet-up events?

Whatever brings the the people together. Right now I'm busy interning in Grass Valley, and I am unsure of what will happen once the internship is done. Hopefully I will be able to travel all over California.

Are there any great vegan resources/websites that we may have missed on our other page?

I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean by "other" page.


I am currently an intern at Animal Place Sanctuary in Grass Valley, CA. I am a dedicated vegan, bibliophile, camper/hiker, and word enthusiast with a love for chocolate and spirituality.
