My journey started in a lab at Purdue University studying Cellular and Bimolecular Engineering. I love science and figuring out how things work. While in graduate school, I sustained a pretty serious concussion that changed my academic trajectory. I learned about White Pine while taking an Herbalism Course. I started as a Village Keeper, and definitely did not anticipate stepping into the role of Course Director. Nature is wonderful and awe inspiring for so many reasons–the intricate working balance of so many forces, and the magic that science can’t seem to explain. I love the opportunity I have to meld so many of the things I’m passionate about: science, nature, and kids!
