I am super excited to get to explore IslandWood with you all! I grew up in on the land of Kickapoo and Peoria in Illinois, but over the last two years have lived in 6 states between the east coast and west coast, working in National Parks and nurturing plants within farms, botanic gardens, and elementary school gardens.
 

I chose IslandWood because I am seeking to develop my skills as an educator by prioritizing equitable, accessible, intersectional, and justice-oriented practices in outdoor education. 

 

I get a lot of joy from arts & crafts, writing letters (to friends, family, and elected officials), friendship, playing the clarinet, hiking, warm chocolate chip cookies, and listening to podcasts.
