Angela has an MFA in creative writing from the University of Michigan, bringing to this project a strongly honed sense of narrative and story. She has spent the past decade professionally guiding people through processes that promote ancestral healing as one pathway to personal healing, collective wellness, and social justice.

She was born and still lives on unceded Chochenyo Ohlone land (San Francisco East Bay Area, CA), and she’s a direct descendent of early English settler-colonizers.
