I come from an applied natural sciences background (M.A. Geography). I have spent over 20 years mapping rare species habitat using computer cartography. I enjoy piecing the puzzle together, the intricate details of how soil, plants, animals, and climate create such different living tapestries. Since becoming a grandmother 10 years ago, I have discovered the joy of cultivating rich dialogues that naturally occur when speaking with the brilliant minds of young children. I feel fortunate to have found Elevation Children’s Center, a preschool that focuses on enabling environments where children can be children.
