I live in the Ozarks and am a transplant from the Chicago area. I enjoy the connection to the land, to the Divine and to the Earth that I feel in this part of the world. I have been a mesa carrier for about 10 years and find that this connects me to power sources greater than myself. I have had many blessings in my life, past and present, and put an emphasis on using my gifts to help others. The KWF is one such focus and it is an honor to me to work with this group and the lives they touch.
I have been in the equine profession for 25 years as a competitor, trainer, body worker and remained an avid student of the horse. They have led me to an inner journey of my own which has led me to develop my own equine growth, and to offer learning and healing programs for others. In 2005 I began my journey with the medicine wheel and in 2010 began traveling to Peru and learning the ancient and mystical teachings of the wisdom keepers of the land. A journey that is a walk of life.
Treasurer - Vikki Baker
I am a licensed medical massage therapist, mentor and one who shares the indigenous teachings from many traditions. As a mesa carrier and a student of the Andean medicine traditions, I find my walk, my work and my relationships are much richer these days. This community of people coming from the place of the heart, while being in right relationship with the earth has given me the opportunity to create, exchange and receive so much.
I'm from Cusco, Peru. I have studied Tourism, Administration and Economics. I work as a coordinator of projects for the Killa Wasi Foundation and also worked as a public administration assistant. At the same time, my social work allows me to teach the Quechua language and work as a translator for Spanish, Quechua and English.
I coordinate activities with high Andean communities where I have direct contact with families where complementary activities are done to improve their family economy. The other development activities are with students from different schools providing them with needed materials for learning and personal development which will help these young people have a technical skill for their future.
