I have always been called to the wild…but it was not until a few years ago that I truly understood what that call meant. I feel so grateful to be able to spend my days following the nature connection path at White Pine Wilderness Academy. I started my learning journey at Purdue University, graduating with a bachelors of science with a concentration on Organizational Leadership. I completed the Indiana Master Naturalist certification and love to travel and learn about new destinations around our great state.

I completed my Forest School Teacher certification at the Academy of Forest Kindergarten Teachers in Santa Barbara, California. I hold immense gratitude for what was presented to me by my mentors, guides, and cohorts on that journey.

I will have my Permaculture Designer training completed in February, just in time to start the Cultivate Healing: Community Herbalism Program taught at Wild Persimmon School of Wellness. This nature connection path is always evolving and I am so grateful for the opportunity to share it with others.
