Tinkergarten provides high-quality early childhood learning in the healthiest classroom of all—the outdoors. Families connect with trained leaders in their local community for play-based kids classes that help develop core life skills, all while having fun!
I have loved small children all my life. As I teen I was privileged to get to care for my little sister, who was born when I was 12. I am constantly inspired by my own son; because of his intense curiosity, his joy in experimenting with EVERYTHING, and his amazing creativity. BUT it was my delight in spending time with my littlest niece that inspired me to become a Tinkergarten leader. I am a lifelong nature-lover crafter (mostly knitting these days), cook (especially with farmer's market produce), reader (Barbara Kingsolver and Alice Hoffman are current favorites) and movie lover (I have a tween so Marvel movies top my list right now). I have a Masters degree in public health and worked at the medical school before becoming a parent. I have been a stay-at-home mom, volunteer and knitting teacher/designer for many years.
