For more than 25 years, Susan has been exploring the relationship between the built environment and the natural environment—as a scientist, teacher and land manager. Susan has a master's degree in Ecosystem Science and Management from Yale University— where she received the American Lawn Fellowship from the authors of ‘Redesigning the American Lawn.’

Susan also teaches Natural History at North Park University and she trains master gardeners and master naturalists on water-friendly landscaping with the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign.
I am a post genre mixed media artist, attending the California College of the Arts. I have been living in Oakland for the past five years, and graduated high school from Oakland High through the Visual Arts Magnet Program (VAAMP). VAAMP taught me to always give back to the community through art.
I joined a college program called College Track, which helps students create a set class course for all high school classes, after school programs, and tutoring so that we are are able to afford and qualify for college. College Track requires several hours of community service, tutoring, and student life workshops.
During high school I got involved with several community oriented groups like Hood Games, Peace Jam, and W.O.M.E. Hood Games is a Skateboarding block party event that partakes through out Oakland. We supply skate ramps, skate equipment that is raffled and given out for free, and entertainment to the community. All funding goes to the Town Park skate park construction and for future Hood Games events. I usually do live painting and assistance at the Hood Games events.
Peace Jam is an event where noble peace prize winners and youth groups get together to help find a solution to home town issues. We meet, enlighten our selves from our Peace Prize winners knowledge, brain storm, and create a plan for when we get back home. Our Peace Jam group is still in the process of completing a mural on the walls of Oakland High.
Recently, I became active with Worriers of Mother Earth (W.O.M.E) and the Community Rejuvenation Project this past summer. We completed four murals in four weeks and a block party to celebrate completing each mural. During the four weeks of the Community Rejuvenation Project I was introduced to the Youth Green Media Center. It was created by a small group of elders and youth from the bottom up. Our goal is to complete a center that included a dance studio, video recording green screen, recording studio, and a place for green organizations to have a stationary office. All youth are welcome to come get training in jobs and talents to succeed.

The Naturopathic scope of practice includes laboratory and clinical diagnosis, botanical medicine, nutrition, homeopathy and more.Naturopathic medicine blends centuries-old natural, non-toxic therapies with current advances in the study of health and human systems, covering all aspects of family health from prenatal to geriatric care.Naturopathic medicine concentrates on whole-patient wellness; the medicine is tailored to the patient and emphasizes prevention and self-care. Naturopathic medicine attempts to find the underlying cause of the patient's condition rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment. Naturopathic physicians cooperate with all other branches of medical science referring patients to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate.
