The Northeast Kingdom of Vermont is a magical ecosystem full of wildlife offering endless amounts of awe, pleasure and suspense. Luckily for me, this is where I am from.
Deeply connected to the earth and nature’s forces, I was taught to appreciate, observe, learn from and adapt to nature and the changes that inevitably came. One of my earliest memories of natural observation was discovering I could predict the weather simply by reading the sky over the Willoughby gap. It was this relationship to the natural world that instigated a lifelong journey of exploration and discovery of how human behavior is connected to nature’s networks and how I could join these forces to navigate the constructs of modern society – by remaining aware, observant, open and adaptable to its rapid changes and fostering a mindset of natural stewardship.
As an adult, my life has been spent observing the patterns of nature and human behavior and the benefits and lessons nature connectedness offers. I believe the process for developing strategies for adapting to change is linked to fostering a deeper connection with nature.
My mission? To help humans connect to and collaborate with the natural world in a way that inspires self-discovery and exploration leading them to identify flexible, sustainable strategies of navigating through, adapting to, and remaining resilient with life’s changes.
My unique blend of education, training, personal and professional experience has supported my passion for living in and with the natural world and driven my quest for providing clearer and more tangible learning methods for overcoming our unique challenges, adapting to life transitions and even becoming change seekers. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Castleton University in Vermont, graduate coursework in Botany from Ohio University, am a qualified personal performance coach, a level 2 certified DISC administer and interpreter, trained in Shinrin Yoku (forest bathing) and currently training to obtain an NLP practitioner accreditation (June 2021). I have spent decades of service in the non-profit, experiential education, business development, natural resource and tourism sectors connecting to diverse populations, social systems, businesses, and human and wild communities. My background and continued efforts demonstrate my dedication to helping individuals achieve outstanding results, fostering a diverse, equitable world and living a life of natural stewardship.
