Monika was born in Germany where she trained as a Registered Nurse with the goal of working overseas. In 1976, she immigrated to the US.
She retrained as a Physician Assistant and has worked in the women's health care field ever since. In 2002, Monika traveled to Guatemala with a small group of volunteers, finally getting a taste of working in a third world country. She is drawn to go back and spend more time there, but, for now, her job and children keep her busy.
Member, Publicity/Outreach Committee Karen is an artist and a retired E.S.L teacher. She is art editor for Integrities and a very sous chef at 160 Sunflower—except when it comes to baking and other desserts. Then she steps to the fore. She helps on dinners and on other fund raisers. In Ontario, Canada, she helped refugees with the problems of settlement and with the family and personal problems that arose in their new lives.
Co-chair, Program and Grant Committee Linda has worked to promote human and community development in the US and abroad. She was co-founder of a non-profit housing development corporation in San Jose and worked for many years developing affordable housing. Subsequently, Linda worked with a sustainable agricultural project in Nepal and was instrumental in bringing local organic produce to UCSC dining halls while she was earning her PhD in Sociology. Linda also served as president of a local mutual water company for over 20 years as well as working in telecommunications and starting a scholarship fund with her husband for students in Malawi, Africa.
