I am a mom, nature lover, and outdoor enthusiast and I am so honored and thrilled to bring Tinkergarten to Metrowest MA! As a child, I spent a lot of unstructured time outside in nature. This time allowed me to explore the natural world as well as explore who I was as a person. It taught me compassion, gratitude, focus, and creativity. My fondest childhood memories are the times I spent playing outside- like exploring the stream behind my house, making "chicken" from a rotting tree, and creating snow creatures.... Today when the world gets too busy, I take a walk in the woods and feel grounded, focused, and at peace. I have a degree in wildlife biology and have worked as a park ranger, arborist, and environmental educator for children of all ages. I look forward to getting to know the families of Metrowest MA and exploring nature with you!
