Taunya van der Steen-Mizel
Taunya (she/her) found her whispered dream to the universe answered with the soul-centered, loving, bravely vulnerable, co-creative World Systems Solutions teams working in conscious collaboration every day toward the greater conscious interconnection of humanity with this one Earth. Abundance has provided for sharing a home in Santa Monica with her husband, being a parent with two teenage daughters and regular travel to the breathtaking beauty of Telluride, CO. Her professional work includes being a visual fine artist and architectural designer, an experienced yoga and meditation practitioner, a California Leadership Council board member with The Nature Conservancy and their Plastics Pollution focus group and a volunteer with other philanthropies including Heal the Bay. Her architectural education and teaching, along with years of world travel have inspired her diverse interests and advocacy of human rights and the rights of nature equally. Taunya holds a BA from Princeton University and a Master’s Degree in Architecture from Columbia University.
