Some see things as they are and ask why?
I dream things that never were and say why not?

Mission and Values
Althea is all about creating safe spaces for people to practice love, kindness and compassion for themselves, one another and the environment. Committed to social justice, peer support, and appreciation of the wonders of the natural world, she has been engaging individuals and groups to live lives they love and feel better doing so. She encourages walking and cycling too, in her personal and professional work; inviting those she needs to meet with to do so in green spaces, or at the very least to walk and talk wherever they can.
