I am a writer, ecologist, and environmental educator living in Portland, Oregon. My day job is in the environmental field at a local watershed council, but by night (well, weekend), I’m also exploring the world of memoir. My two current projects: Bigger Than the Sky, a book about my relationship with my father; and katiescolitisjournal.com, a blogged chronicle of my journey with a serious autoimmune gut disease. I also occasionally blog here, too!
