Raised on an Iowa farm, I cherish the days of my youth spent going on adventures and exploring in the great outdoors. Now, I enjoy my time outdoors with my husband and four young children camping and hiking and exploring around our community. There is something about being in nature that brings magic to playtime. I have experienced it for years working at a summer camp and directing youth programs in our community. I am now so excited to share it through Tinkergarten. I look forward to exploring and going on adventures with you in Tinkergarten class.
