How did you hear about the Boulder & Beyond Vegan Meetup?

My friend Rich Sanchez told me about the meet up.

What made you decide to go vegan/ explore a more compassionate lifestyle?

My family and I have been vegetarian for years. Although I felt like I was making a difference, I always felt like I could do more. I also felt like the animals that are abused for us to have dairy and eggs suffer their entire life. I just can't distribute to it any more. I finally feel at peace with my decision of my life style. I feel so much happier knowing that no animal will ever suffer for me again!

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

Just being around people that have the same life style as me makes me excited! I would love to talk to people about my goals in helping these poor animals.

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

How to talk to people about my decision. Learning how to cook vegan meals. Helping my children feel confident about being vegan.


My family and I have been vegetarian for years and just made the best decision of pure lives to become vegan! I have a soon to be 15 year old daughter, that has also made the decision to be come vegan. I also have a 14mos. old baby that is vegan.
