I was born and raised on Cape Cod among the lands and waters that have been stewarded by the Wampanoag nations since time immemorial. My home was surrounded by beech groves and tidal salt marshes that buffered the forest from the bay. As a kid, I had the privilege to do a lot of my learning outside whenever school was out, and have felt attached to learning ever since. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Vermont, and worked in East Boston, first as an educator with AmeriCorps, then as a baker, then an educator again in a middle school science classroom. I am an alumnus of the IslandWood EEC Graduate Program and have taught and learned with a variety of ages on IslandWood campus, and hope to continue learning about these lands and waters and the Indigenous nations who have and continue to care for it. When not teaching, I love to bake bread and make things with my hands.
IslandWood acknowledges that we live and work on the ancestral land of the Coast Salish people, who have been stewards of this region's land and waters since time immemorial, and who continue to protect these lands and waters for future generations, as promised by the Point Elliott Treaty of 1855, the Treaty of Point No Point of 1855, and the Treaty of Medicine Creek of 1854.
While the majority of our work takes place on Suquamish (suq̀ʷabš) and Duwamish (dxʷdɐwʔabʃ) land, we also conduct programs on the land of the Snohomish (sduhúbʃ), Puyallup (spuyaləpabš), Muckleshoot (buklshuhls), Skokomish (sqoqc’bes), and S’Klallam (nəxʷsƛ̕ay̕əm) peoples.
