I am a nature lover and initiated litter cleanup campaigns in my native Scandinavia after every snow-melt. When we moved to Naples in 1997, we immidiately got involved in protecting the beautiful environment and started Friends of Lowdermilk Park. I got the President’s 2003 Volunteer Service Award from President Bush when he was visiting Rookery Bay. In 2004 my husband Leif and I received the Environmental Citizens Award from the Conversancy of Southwest Florida. We are ambassadors for the City of Naples and long-time members of Keep Collier Beautiful.
