The project’s graduate assistant, Nicole Theberge, provides key coordination assistance to the project:
My name is Nicole Theberge, and I am so honored and excited to be the graduate assistant for this project. Here is a little about me: I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and I love it here. I have one younger brother, and right now I live with my parents. I love to swim, camp, hike, and play games. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Human Services from Western Washington University. During college I volunteered for a group called Women’s Empowerment and Violence Education, where I worked with other women to educate our community about issues relating to violence against women. I have also worked as a domestic violence and sexual assault services advocate, and for a program supporting children with asthma. After graduating I served as an AmeriCorps member at a mediation center, facilitating conflict resolution workshops for kids and teens. Last year I spent a month and a half in Nepal, where I taught English at a women’s center and worked with children with disabilities. I have also traveled to Peru, Costa Rica, Italy, England, and all over Canada. I am now getting my masters degree in Whole Systems Design at Antioch.
I believe women are in an important and unique position to create a better world. I have come to believe in the power of sharing stories and creating connection to solve important issues and to enrich lives. This project presents an amazing opportunity for discovering each other’s wisdom and ideas. I am looking forward to creating those connections and learning from and with everyone involved in this project.
