LaTerra Wise is a local author and life coach who found her beliefs about purpose and healing extended beyond individuals to the environment. This realization prompted her to join WET’s board in 2019. LaTerra believes we all have a responsibility to leave every person and place we encounter better as a result of our presence. Her view on environmentalism is summed up in this quote by “The Accidental Environmentalist,” Catherine Flowers: “Some people think you are only an environmentalist if you care about polar bears. But if you care about people, and you care about land, and you care about God’s creation–you’re an environmentalist.
