I walk. I hike. I think. I write. I take pictures. I study life. I believe there is poetry in every moment.
Jayme Welch Here
I am an ’84 baby from the Pacific Northwest with a thirst for adventure. I crave the great outdoors. Without writing, I’d be lost.
I believe in Stoic philosophy and am open to perspective. We’ve got one life to live and I’m determined to give it my best shot.
I am currently working on building Seventy1 Environmental and am very passionate about the impact of stormwater/urban runoff on the quality of our waterways.
I believe in the power of small business and operating for the common good. I’m interested in business theory and the blending of activism and entrepreneurship. Balance and harmony are vital in my version of success.
I spent my twenties slowly exploring different versions of myself in an effort to decide which one I should choose. It took me a whole decade to finally realize that I don’t have to choose just one, but can embrace all sides of me, even the contradictions.
Part of me is still that barefoot, laid back girl roaming the beaches of California or Australia or Spain. And part of me is the rugged hiker with matted hair and charcoaled fingers. Or the girl who sleeps in her motorhome and hasn’t showered in a week. And there is this other part, still, that likes to put on makeup, light candles and host dinner parties. Or make crafts. Or discuss business and plan events. Somewhere in there is the groovy dancing queen with wine-stained lips, though I see her much less these days. I am also part-hermit. From time to time, I enter solitude to ponder and reflect and write. There is the romantic. The emotional. The rough and tough. The sensitive and the strong. The fearful and the courageous. The traveler who feels free without a home and the dreamer who longs to build one.
