About Me

I am a lover of the Earth and learn from every landscape I travel through. I am from the Midwest (Kansas city), but my home is the west coast. I have a degree in forest ecology and have worked on farms on the northwest coast of Canada, the high desert of central Oregon, and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. I currently work for a non-profit building a native plant nursery, nurturing genetics of the redwood forest, and hosting a podcast on the coast of California, but am taking some downtime to explore the southeast. I am easy going and love getting to know people from all backgrounds!
