I love traveling, and have spent months in India/Sri Lanka, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and worked in Japan for two years. My background is in Horticulture, and I am continually looking for ways to integrate the outdoor environment as a means for the healthy development of children.
I am a positive person, and seek that same quality in someone. I have a big heart and lots of love to share. It makes me really happy to find the perfect gift for someone, and I love sharing the food that I make. I love going out to eat, especially Indian or sushi!
I enjoy creativity...gardening, beadwork, writing, sewing, knitting. I have a lovely community of friends with children who are very important to my son and I. I love biking, walking, swimming and yoga.
I have a Bachelor's degree from the U of M in Horticulture and Foreign Language. I am almost finished with a Master's Degree from Hamline in Environmental Education.
This summer will be our fourth living and working at a family camp near Ely, MN, right on the edge of the Boundary Waters. It's become a home away from home, and the Superior National Forest is where I want to be whenever I can! Although I enjoy the culture and diversity of the Twin Cities, it feels so great to be off the grid and immersed in nature. I am working tirelessly to protest the copper/nickel mine that threatens the watersheds of the BWCAW and Lake Superior.
