My life is dedicated to being of service to those called to encounter depths of wisdom and healing through active participation with the interconnected web of life. My purpose is to support people through life's transitions by facilitating nature-based experiences that provide a space for personal transformation to occur. Through deepening our relationships with nature, may we create a world of empowered people, caring for each other from a place of wholeness and deep connection.
Growing up nestled in the Loess Bluffs of Northwest Missouri, my early life was profoundly shaped by quests into the forested land surrounding my home. As a youth who experienced early trauma, I took refuge and counsel in my relationship with wild nature. A cool perennial spring and pond in the forest held my deepest stories of pain and vulnerability. Unknown to me at the time, I developed an identity that was inseparable from the wild nature that enveloped me.
