My name is Leah Kathleen Pisaruck.
I am a 26-year-old writer and artist, and I have always felt an intense love and connection with nature. I grew up in Seattle, WA, surrounded by a perfect trifecta of the natural world’s treasures: mountains, forests and ocean. In high school, I volunteered to work on trails for a couple of weeks in Mount Rainier National Park, and I fell in love with that mountain. Rainier’s ancient energy truly helped me to get through an emotional trauma at the time.
At age 19, I decided to hike the Pacific Northwest Trail. This National Scenic Trail runs from the Northeastern corner of Glacial National Park, along the Canadian Border, ending up on the Olympic Coast of Washington. Upon returning to Seattle after months in the wilderness, the city was simply too overwhelming and chaotic. I missed being on top of majestic mountains, listening to the simultaneous tranquility and vitality of the forest, and feeling the age and wisdom of the trees surrounding me. Not long after I returned, I spontaneously decided to move to Bozeman, Montana to be closer and more accessible to mountains, forests, and rivers. Seven years later, I now live in Missoula, Montana to study Environmental Literature. I am so grateful for my deepened relationship with the beautiful and complex natural world– our ancient family that too many of us have neglected and forgotten.
The humans are everywhere, and the green world is being unraveled and shredded and burned by the spreading of a gray world that seems to have no end.
Whether you sell eco-friendly household products, sustainable clothing, renewable energy, or simply need help fundraising for your non-profit, I would love to help you fulfill your goals.
