I grew up on Clackamas and Cowlitz land, with a love of the rain and a growing curiosity about the relationships between humans and the land, waters, and life we share this world with. After studying elementary education in college, I spent time up and down the West Coast as a recess coach, an after-school program coordinator, and early childhood program administrator. 

 

I came to IslandWood for its emphasis on justice and equity as being foundational to environmental education. As an aspiring elementary school teacher, I’m excited to spend this year diving into culturally sustaining pedagogy, teaching as a form of resistance, and the power and joy of learning that happens outside of a classroom.  

 

When not teaching and learning with all of you, you can find me reading, playing the violin, running, or cooking with friends and family. I’m excited to get to know you soon!
