Founder / Instructor
I guess I’ve always been a naturalist. I developed my curiosity about the natural world during my childhood on Shelter Island. That passion for natural history persists today.
I moved back to Shelter Island in 2010, and love to go “adventuring” with my incredible son, Miles. We set out in all kinds of weather to scout locations and develop activities for EcoDiscovery Experience.
I hold a Master of Environmental Management degree in resources ecology and am an Eastern Region Association of Forest and Nature Schools (ERAFANS) Certified Educator. I have taught environmental science at rural schools in the Bolivian Andes while in the Peace Corps, supported natural resource managers at military installations around the country, worked in wetland restoration in the private sector, and taught science and math at the Hayground School in Bridgehampton.
