Her experience with various types of business organizations, both in the and globally, for-profit and not-for-profit, are invaluable gifts she brings to her clients.
Environmental activism - awareness of the impact our human endeavors have on the earth, and experiencing the deep healing that comes from our interactions with the natural world have all guided decisions and directions in Sami's life.
Sami gives FREE workshops to homeowners and public groups in "Restoring Natives in the Suburban Landscape" through her certification as a Kansas Master Naturalist. These workshops teach attendees how to easily create their own wildflower gardens and how restored native areas prevent flooding, clean toxins from our waters, reduce the amount of city water we use, while replenishing habitat for declining populations of pollinators and other wildlife. The bonus is that these natural areas also connect us to the stress-reduction benefits that come from time spent in nature via the colors, scents and sensations of a living, native garden that evolves and flows through all seasons.
Sami's company, Being Onto Something LLC, is a member of 1% For the Planet which donates 1% of corporate profits to environmental causes.
