After years of leadership in environmental and place-based education, I was led to forest therapy as one of many modalities to promote healing from experiences related to a sudden shift in identity. With the forest as my therapist, I discovered not only a profound grief for years of disconnection, but also a deep reservoir of personal strength & resilience, and an abiding joy rooted in the hopeful abundance of nature to connect & restore.

I am thrilled, humbled, and honored to continue the work of healing myself by healing others and the more-than-human world. I believe that we are each in possession of our own unique talents or "medicine." We are born with this medicine within us, with which we can heal ourselves and the wounds of others and the world. In partnership with the forest, I seek to open the doors for others on the journey of discovering their own personal medicine, and believe that in doing so, we can continue the cycle of healing this world to wholeness.

Wildish Nature Connections is my labor of love to the world, with the intent to foster not only nature connection within individuals, but to deepen the ties of community that bind us all together as beings sharing the Earth. Through Wildish, I provide forest therapy and nature connection experiences that invite us to tap into and reconnect with the wild one within.
