SUMMARY

I am an agile educator with extensive success facilitating rich opportunities in a variety of contexts, internationally and domestically. As an Education Integrator, I leverage my knowledge and experience to stir what is best in people so they can co-create holistic, enduring resources that make sense for their community.

Since 1996, I have partnered with:

  • College and university students,

  • Intergenerational groups exploring wilderness,

  • Elementary grade students,

  • Artists imagining the world beyond their institutional home,

  • Learners in early years education,

  • Families of a variety of identities and contexts,

  • Non-profit organizations, and

  • School staff and leadership.

I have proven ability to develop systems that are other than the sum of their parts by gathering people to share their experiences and understandings. My work is inclusive, qualitative, data-informed, and values-based. My highest professional seat is collaborating with children, their families, and their teachers to restore, create, and integrate environments and practices that nurture the inherent greatness of every child.
