Siena Ariel Travis Callander – Copy Editor
Adventurer, writer, animal lover and vegan. One day I hope to write and publish my own novel (let’s be honest, probably won’t ever happen). Unapologetic animal rights activist and photographer in my spare time. Lover of all things art, tea and food related. My motto in life: Be kind to every kind. I think the idea that some lives matter less than others is the root of all that is wrong in the world, and we should do something to change that.
Fun fact: I grew up in the beautiful Byron Bay, Australia, hinterland and spent my afternoons in high school in the original Kindred Magazine office, proofreading articles and mailing off boxes of hand-packaged magazines, back when it was just a small print magazine.
Almost a decade later, I’m excited to be rejoining the Kindred Media family!

Teresa Graham Brett – Associate Editor
Teresa lives her passion for creating social change by combining her work in social justice education with parenting. As a professional, she has spent over 20 years working in and with universities and colleges as an educator, leader, administrator and consultant committed to advancing social change and social justice. After graduating from law school, she decided not to practice law. Instead, she opted to serve the cause of social change and justice through her work at three large public universities across the country. She worked with innovative programs designed to create transformative learning for students, staff and faculty. As a consultant she continues to bring her expertise and passion to clients interested in transformative learning, social change and social justice.
Her own life was transformed after the births of Martel and Greyson, who have challenged her to live the values of liberation, freedom and respect as a parent. She discovered the ways in which she did not live in congruence with her professional values in her role as a parent. Using her experience in facilitating social justice learning, she began her own learning journey toward creating respectful relationships with the children who share her life. This personal journey and her challenge to others to create broader social change by transforming how we view and treat children is chronicled in her writing, both on her website and in her book, Parenting for Social Change.
