Biography

I’m a teaching artist and botanist working with the natural world to inspire creativity and build resiliency myself and others. Starting with my curiosity about the places we live and our connections to them, I explore nature as a model and inspiration to help access the creativity present in each of us.

I love to connect people, plants and place through creative, collaborative experiences. I draw on my background as a botanist, field researcher, urban forester and environmental educator to design custom projects and programs that support your mission and engage communities.

Building a strong, authentic relationship to the places we live can ground us as neighbors, communities and individuals. And this becomes a foundation for healing, building new connections, and looking toward the future together by questioning and learning our histories.
