About Me


Living beautifully and making guacemole whenever possible.


Five telling things about me:
*Although I want to build a career in outdoor education and empowerment work, ultimately, I want to live by the ocean and write children's books.
*I dance and sing in the car.
*My best adventures are the ones that start by accident.
*I fistpump when I get excited.
*The tattoo I want to get is of the Paper Bag Princess dancing into the sunset.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just last summer I took a job leading a group of twelve kids on a 1,400+ mile bikeride from Amsterdam to Barcelona, through the Swiss Alps and the French Pyrenees Mountains. This is how I want to do my life: do fun things and get paid for it.

Teach, Learn, Share

*Outdoors savviness--one match fires, making shelter out of shoelaces and a tarp, fun campfire games, how to not get hypothermia... etc.
*Empowerment theory, practice, conversation and impassioned diatribe
*Basic bike maintenance and repair
*Basic French
