I grew up in Connecticut (Lenape Land) and spent much of my childhood wandering the woods, hunting for salamanders, and watching crabs down by the beach. I am a recent graduate of Bates College in Lewiston, Maine (Abenaki Land) with a major in Environmental Studies. Postgrad I took a gap year, during which I worked in the education department at my local aquarium and also spent two months in South Africa working on my safari guide qualifications.
I hope to spend my time at Islandwood encouraging young learners as they explore the outdoors. So much of my identity has been shaped by my passion and understanding of the outdoors. I want to help instill these values in others.
I love guiding in the outdoors, birding, poetry, reading, out of tune sing-alongs, and nights by the campfire.
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.
