Originally from North Carolina, I now call northern Minnesota home. I've spent the last few years managing farms, working at summer camps, and most recently, skiing and hiking with students in the North Woods as a naturalist and teacher. My favorite part of working in all these spaces is the intersection of people and nature. I am impressed by the calm achieved in the presence of wilderness and the ability for people to open up while working with their hands. My life would be incomplete without bat facts, Cheetos or rainy mornings.
