About Me

My name is Beth. I am fifty three years old. I have been working since I was sixteen and before that I babysat my nieces and nephews.  I like to cultivate joy. I like to say yes to beauty every single day. I am a vegetarian. I believe in sacred nourishment. I believe in the earth. I am a part of the Pan Revolution. I believe in the new consciousness. I love to dance. I love trees.  I love music. I am a mother. I am a coach. I am a writer. I am the author of The Rooted Series and the Life Roots Healing System. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Special Education. I am a Reading Specialist. I am a certified Elementary Education and High School Education and Math Education teacher. I am a Morning Friends Preschool teacher, which was a home business that I designed for two to five year-olds. I have a Masters of Education in Agency Counseling. I am a respite provider, a Mental Health Support Services Worker, a Psychosocial Rehabilitation Specialist, a human rights advocate, vegetarian chef, a former Chair of a Local Human Rights Committee, a former Wellness Coalition Board member, a children’s advocate, a sexual assault companion, a domestic violence and sexual assault hotline advocate, a conference planner, a newsletter writer and coordinator, workshop designer and leader, keynote speaker, meditation leader, an Advanced Level WRAP facilitator, a Hearing Voices Network facilitator, an animal rights advocate, a herbalism student, a Reiki Master, a former Hearing Voices Network board member, a certified Advance Directives facilitator, a certified life coach and a Coordinator of Wellness and Empowerment.   My books include A Rooted Mind After All, A Rooted Body, A Rooted Soul, Meditations for Rooted Living, Collected Works of Poetry, A Rooted Nourishment, A Rooted Community, Heart Roots, A Rooted Nourishment, too, A Rooted Wellness and A Rooted Nell. I have a trauma release program called WREN (Wellness Resiliency Notes) and The Twelve Steps of Resiliency. I have a house full of pottery and plants. I believe in magic. I believe in roots. I believe in the feeling in my body that tells me when something is right. I believe in following those right things through my roots to the place where joy lives. I believe in the quiet place that lives in my heart.  My journey has been full of unexpected places that I never knew I would go to. I lost everything I thought I was only to find myself again in a way that is so beautiful and lovely that there is nothing to do but share it. I like to write about where I have been and where I have come to. I like to write about what is happening in the world right now in this time of awakening. I believe in freedom for myself and for everyone. I can feel the world asking us like never before to open ourselves to our own magic. Everything we will ever need is right here with us. Let’s awaken to it together.
