Kindergarten teacher, writer, and social activist. Three years leadership experience for wilderness restoration NPO, Northwest Youth Corps (https://www.nwyouthcorps.org) rekindled my interest in the outdoors and led me to pursue wildlife biology study at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Little did I know that this, coupled with my volunteering experience on rural farms in Japan shortly after High School (http://www.wwoofjapan.com/main/), and the most amazing summer of my life farming on an Alaskan homestead would inspire me to create Organic Sun many years later.
Organic Sun is small freelance translation company started by me in 2012, which strives: "To ensure a healthy and sustainable future for Japanese agriculture, we support farmers, local government, research, and innovation by translating Japanese agricultural documents into English. Organic Sun is dedicated to help clients express their message with accurate, culturally relevant, and carefully crafted translations."
I hope that Organic Sun will become much more than a translation company, and am already in contact with like-minded individuals who share a passion for reviving agriculture in Japan and in the world.

I frequently travel into the mountains to work with and learn from Japanese farmers. I suppose this is a strange hobby, but it keeps me happy. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, fishing, reading, camping, baking bread and star-gazing.
