I grew up romping around the woods with my younger brother Graham, our dogs, our chickens and all kinds of wildlife. I developed a strong, lasting kinship with nature from a childhood spent playing outdoors. As my exposure to the world grew, I became troubled by the injustices and inequities that people, animals and places faced. I’ve spent the last 10 years working in the field of environmental education, exploring equitable solutions to the lack of accessibility to this field, and my role in this field.
I’ve come to IslandWood seeking leadership, training and practice in intersectional, accessible, equitable and justice-oriented education for environment and community.
I love gardening, snorkeling, backpacking, friendship, stewardship, the moon, mountains, forest, ocean, and sun.
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.
