Sherry Jean Olander
Hello! I am originally from Long Island, NY but now live in Charlottesville, VA. I heard of Karla’s work originally in an interview on NPR and resonated with it immediately. I feel very strongly about how profound of an effect knowing how to work with emotions can have on our lives. I think of my childhood and know how much easier it would have been if I had known what emotions were, how to understand them, and how to work with them at that early of an age. I would love to bring this work to schools, and help teach people this information and these skills as early as possible. My artistic practices are: writing, playing Irish flute, photography, and papercrafts or painting/drawing occasionally. The importance of creativity and artistic expression is something else I feel passionately about and would love to incorporate more of that work into my life as well. The elemental theory and the idea of balancing all of the different aspects of ourselves is one of my favorite pieces of DEI. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
