Very proud to finally have this ready for the public - www.low-sal-life.com . It's a tidy compilation of research, recipes, and a directory of foods and products to use for people with salicylate sensitivity. If any of you design websites - you know this is a work in progress, but it's at least ready to be viewed by the public. Check out my low-sal-life page (overview) for more information about the project including social media and YouTube.

Here's a new story about a project I did at UW Bothell. I installed all the tags in February, so the tags are managing themselves while everyone is away for COVID-19. Cool thing is, people can still learn about plants with no one around if they walk along the Burke-Gilman Trail! Thanks to Audrey Figgins and Jessica Rouske for helping with the online profiles. You can check out the plant profiles from home at: https://www.uwb.edu/wetlands/plants .

I'm so excited to announce and release today, The Power of Mentoring , a video I was the project manager on at UW Bothell. This video features two faculty and three students who talk about their experience working with one another through research. Altogether, the video took several months to complete. I coordinated all the players including the UW Bothell staff, the videographer, and the interviewed participants.

My story made the Bothell-Kenmore Reporter, which included my artwork, "Carried away with Crows".-SV...From the success of last year’s crow watch, Verlinde and Rouske spent about six months developing the new camp. Verlinde said the camp is designed to combine science, art and corvids. “It will engage students in science and art,” she said. “Those two are often separated, which I don’t think it should be that way.”

Registration is open, classes are filling up, and the Crows: Caws and Effect curriculum is finally finished. A major thanks to my student worker, Jessica Rouske, who helped develop and complete this project! -SV Crows and ravens are smart, quirky, and mysterious. UW Bothell is home to thousands of crows that roost on campus every night creating a unique environment for research and creative expression.

Ashley Shattuck and I had a great opportunity to share one of our favorite places with others: Skagit Delta Estuary and Craft Island for the WNPS Study Weekend. Included in this article is a plant list, what to expect, and Becky Chaney's trip report. We had a great time! Craft Island, a rocky bald set in the mud flats of Skagit Bay, is on Rawlins Road on Fir Island between La Conner and Conway, in Washington State.

Ever wonder why native birds need native plants? Join Ashley Shattuck and Sarah Verlinde on November 15 for an informative presentation. Together they'll invite you to bridge the two worlds between birders and botanists. Rather than categorizing yourself as one or the other, consider just being a naturalist and enjoying the interdependence of both groups on one another (at least for an evening).

This video features three faculty and their students who talk about their experience working with one another through research and creative practice.

Thirteen years at Starbucks. What started out as something small, turned out to be so much more. I've worked in one call-center, two states, three office departments, seven cities, called eleven stores home, worked for dozens of managers, covered shifts in over sixty stores, made lattes with hundreds of employees, and served thousands of customers. This company has been a great catalyst in my personal and professional development.

the highest standards - amazing collaborations
