As a kid growing up in Hawaii, I loved making dirt pies, picking mangoes and avocados from the yard and hiking all over the island. After living in the islands, I earned my BA in International Relations and Visual Arts at Brown University and MA in International Affairs at Columbia University. Earlier in my career, I served in the Peace Corps in the Sahara, researched women's small businesses in Syria and then worked in tech. I have taught at the high school and elementary level but I especially enjoy working in early childhood development. I wanted to find a way to spend more time with my family and discover fun ways to venture into the wilderness with my children. At the heart of it all, I enjoy making art with kids, finding nature treasures with little ones and searching for new trails in the Bay Area. I hope to explore the outdoors with your families and cultivate greater curiosity in their lives.
