Pronouns: she/her/hers


I grew up here on the island, the ancestral land of the Suquamish, where I connected with the natural world by building fairy houses, wandering through the rainy woods, and playing on the shores of the Salish Sea. 


I have spent much of the last six years teaching, studying, and conducting ethnographic research in rural Nepal, learning from kids and communities about the many ways to know and be in relationship with the natural world.  


came to IslandWood to grow as an educator committed to culturally and locally relevant, inclusive, and joyful environmental learning. I am loving re-meeting home through the curiouscreative eyes of IslandWood students. 


In my free time I enjoy walking on the beach, through the woods, and in the mountains.
