I am thrilled to be your Tinkergarten Leader. I hope to bring back the wonderment and enthusiasm of the great outdoors for everyone. I cannot wait to engage, create, explore, and play with your children and you. I was raised in Texas with all the best it has to offer. My childhood was filled with outdoor adventures. I am passionate about bringing that world to my own child. I want nature to be a foundation for him as it was for me. I wish to inspire others to love the world they live in. My combined unique upbringing with my education from The University of Texas at San Antonio in Biology and Criminal Justice, and some interesting careers has led me to this exciting time - Tinkergarten! We are going to have some really thrilling adventures. Come join us!
