how did you hear about the boulder vegan meetup?

I've been wanting to meet other vegans, so I just typed it in the search box. :)

what made you decide to go Vegan/ explore a more compassionate lifestyle?

I love animals. For as long as I can remember I have worked at or volunteered at animal rescues. The biggest reason I was recently in Thailand was to work at an animal rescue for several months, where I adopted my dog. I am going to school to be a veterinarian so that I can eventually open my own no-kill rescue, and provide low-cost and free health care to the animals. How could I be so madly in love with cats and dogs, but eat cows, pigs, and birds? It is extremely zombie-esque to me, and the first time that I saw a factory farming video eleven years ago, I never touched meat again.

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in?

Fundraising and volunteering would be great, and is always a lot of fun! Potlucks, too, because I'm always hungry. ;)

on your veg journey, do you have specific challenges that you'd like help with

So far, so good for me! But this is a wonderful question. :)

Introduction

Hi! I'm Lindsay, and I just moved here from Ohio after backpacking through Europe and Asia! I'm obsessed with all things related to cats, coffee, wine, and traveling the world. I have been vegan for 11 years!
