Greetings Fabulous Facilitators,

I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with all of you and to be a part of the Pachamama Community. Since I began my journey here a couple months ago, I have heard and read so many amazing stories about how you’ve all been in service to the Planet and making the work of The Pachamama Alliance possible, many of you for years and years. I feel so honored to be joining such a dedicated, generous and caring group of people!

Like all of you, I have held the mission and vision of The Pachamama Alliance close to my heart and have been working to support it in the world in different ways. I spent many years in public education, mostly as a teacher and always as an advocate for children and their families, and was able to gain experience in environmental education, conflict resolution, equity work and leadership. Volunteering in my community and environmental and peace activism are also a large part of my history. More recently, I have been working on an MBA in Sustainable Enterprise and have worked to promote sustainability in business, education and residential buildings. Doing this work with you now, I feel that my heart, mind, body and spirit are aligned, and I can put my deepest values into action in the world.

I look so forward to getting to know each of you over the coming weeks and months and to learning more about the work you’re doing, what lights you up and what calls you forward. My intention is to support you in doing whatever this is for you, keep you informed and connected, explore with you how to grow your community—and be a bridge for you to the Pachamama office. As the elements of our new engagement pathways are developed, I will do my best to keep you in the loop and see that you have what you need to participate.

I’m sure we will be connecting sometime in the near future, but until then, please know that I’m here, and that you can contact me at ana@pachamama.org or 415.561.4522 ext. 105.

In partnership and with gratitude,
Ana
