Corinne is responsible for developing and managing the TILTreks & Talks program, as well as community outreach and development.
She grew up in rural Maine where her parents were part of the “back-to-the-land” movement. She earned her BFA in advertising and graphic design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and took classes in horticulture from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. She earned a Permaculture Design Certificate from the NY Open Center. It was the basic theory of Permaculture that really hit home for Corinne: “Care of People. Care of Planet. Return of Surplus to Both.”
Corinne had visited the Thousand Islands a few times, and fallen in love with the area, so in March of 2010 she moved to Hyde Lake with her husband to pursue a volunteer opportunity at a local artists’ retreat. She has also served on the education committee for the North Country Arts Council in Watertown, is a supporter of the T.I. Arts Center in Clayton and belongs to a local artist's group for women. She enjoys gardening, hiking, fishing and generally any activity that allows her to be outside.
