Member/Manager, Head Instructor

I found myself constantly in nature as a child. It’s where I was happiest. There was an awe and wonder about the natural world that struck me deep. I have been fortunate enough to be introduced to many different teachers/mentors throughout my life, including our most profound teacher, the Earth. I decided to continue this journey by visiting other schools and connecting with more people. Eventually, this lead me to start my own education center that brings teachings in from everywhere. This is my way of sharing knowledge and experience in order to create a learning space for everyone. I want to give back to the people, the skills and the Earth. A change can be made here. It’s just a matter of time…
