I grew up exploring the woods surrounding Miquon and spent my summers here as a camper. As a child, I delighted in the rippling creek, tall trees and the seemingly infinite supply of delicious wineberries. My experiences nurtured a deep affection and appreciation for the natural world. After thirty years, this hasn’t changed.

I’m extremely fortunate to have rejoined this beautiful and caring community as a teacher. My favorite part of this role is helping children notice and experience the cycles that sustain us. Being a specialist, I get to work with children every year that they are here. Together, we come to know plants, creatures and seasons by spending our days (and years) living alongside them. This close relationship allows for observation, great questions and personally meaningful exploration.
