Una didn't know she was being political when she challenged assumptions of perpetual growth or profit as the divine principle. These tenets simply didn't make sense to her. After earning her MBA with highest honors, she rejected venture capitalism & focused on local work devoted to sustainability of environment and/or community.
Now, as a mother with a chronic illness, she is even more acutely aware of the inhumanity of a profit-driven society. She writes her explorations of these issues while homeschooling her daughter, slowly converting her urban home into a homestead, teaching knitting, designing knit patterns & exploring ways to be politically active on the ground.
She was one of the arrestees during the Occupy Boston eviction raid and will be representing herself as she stands for civil and human rights over the rights of property and State.
On a lighter note, she enjoys science fiction and some fantasy, is a voracious reader of many genres, though; owns a custom pair of dance roller skates since 1981; enjoys board games; has had an unusual career path and done a fair bit of world traveling. No matter how broken her body becomes, she will always dance. Oh, and has done some writing about the use of the vampire metaphor in Western culture. You can't begin to capture a person in a short bio. Suffice it to say her house is always a mess, but her life is rarely boring.
