I am an American living in Paris and after many kinds of personal transitions – moving to a new country, switching fields, raising children – I discovered, with great pleasure, the Transition movement in 2007. After working on many events to share this movement, I got my local CSA group interested and we started Paris 15 en Transition in 2010. I also helped start the French Hub the same year, and have been involved with international projects such as collaborative translations, hosting visiting speakers, and, last year, Transition activities around the COP21. In 2011, I did the Train the Trainers course in Grenoble and joined the new team offering the Launch course in France. Always interested in many areas, I have taken workshops in REconomy, Inner Transition, Deep Ecology, as well as in Non-Violent Communication, Positive Discipline (for parents) and Sociocracy, all of which are inspirational resources for training.
