I was a dedicated educator for 29 years, as well as a mentor and coach. I've always enjoyed working with and helping others and pride myself on being a lifelong learner. I believe nature provides endless lessons. I spent my childhood and adolescence playing and exploring outdoors so it was no surprise I pursued outdoor endurance sports in my adulthood. I've completed several marathons and century bike rides furthering my love for nature. After finding ANFT, I was overwhelmed with nostalgia which reignited childhood play and imagination. I love to share my passion of the outdoors with others.
