Growing up in rural Vermont, I developed early-on the sense of natural curiosity and a penchant for exploring that have guided my professional life. I discovered outdoor education late in high school, and my path since has focused on supporting organizations that help develop kids into stewards, explorers, community members, leaders, and learners.
Following college, I led wilderness trips and taught residential outdoor education in both Colorado and the Northeast. The next fork in the road took me to 5 years of teaching Environmental Education and coordinating trips for the Logan School for Creative Learning, where I journeyed everywhere from Alaska to Orlando with a class in tow. In my most recent endeavor as Program Director for the Colorado Mountain Club’s Youth Education Program, I developed a love for program support and administration. I am truly excited to join the Friends’ community, and to sustain the wonderful work that is being done here. The Friends’ School philosophy resonates deeply with me, and I look forward to introducing new families to our school and communicating our mission.
