I am a lover of outdoor adventure and exploration, as well as a strong advocate for stewardship of the natural world that we live in. I have a strong background in both outdoor recreation and wilderness education, as well as therapeutics with at-risk youth. I earned my BS in Environmental Science (from Westfield State University), and subsequently moved to Hawaii to work for a horticultural-based mental health and wellness program, and then to Vermont to continue my work with at-risk youth in the wilderness.
After progressing through the ranks of field guide to an administrative position as Field Director of the Young Adult Program, I have moved on to pursue a career in Permaculture Design. I am currently fundraising to put myself through a Design Certificate program at the Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Vermont, and will supplement this education with my experience on the Planning Commission for the Town of Fayston, and experience timber framing, farming, and landscaping.
