My road in life took a while to figure out.
After college, she joined a nonprofit and taught for two years.
Loved teaching, but was really unhappy with the pressure to teach to certain curricula and meet certain standards.
Didn't know what her next step would be, so she went on a road trip to Yosemite and fell in love.
Tried to figure out how she could stay there and live there; someone told her about NatureBridge.
NatureBridge teaches children environmental literacy; often their students are from underrepresented communities.
Gets to see her students experience huge interpersonal and personal growth as a result of the various hikes and team-building activities.
One of her favorite quotes is, "We haven't inherited the earth from our ancestors; we've borrowed it from our children."
Says that in order to live in harmony with their surroundings, kids need environmental education and time spent in nature.
