I grew up in rural Missouri where I spent a lot of time exploring the hills, forests, and creeks as a child and teen. In 2008, my husband and I moved to Utah where I fell in love with the outdoors once again. In 2012, we found our way to Tucson, AZ and I became enamored with this beautiful desert landscape that is around us. I have three boys, ages 14, 3 and a brand new baby. We love to utilize our local, state, and national parks for adventuring. I've worked with children for over 20 years. I had my first nanny position at 12. I've spent years in early childhood education. My degree is history with an emphasis in museum work. I was the educational director at a small museum in Utah. I am now a homeschool mom where I serve as a committee chair and teach art and sensory explorations classes for our co-op. I look forward to exploring this amazing desert with your family.
