Here’s why I’m good at what I do, and why I’m confident I can help you achieve your goals.
I taught middle school physics, cell biology, and science fair, as well as resource math and English. I know how to tease out important information, summarize complex topics, provide necessary background, and make it all compelling.
I worked for the Bureau of Land Management, writing field guides and NEPA documents. I’m familiar with agency procedures and fluent in land management jargon.
I have an interdisciplinary master’s degree in conservation biology and communication. I “speak science” and I know how to talk about values. I have a solid natural history knowledge base, and I’m comfortable with both qualitative and quantitative information.
I’m a graduate of Martha Beck’s Life Coach Training and the Wings Seminars core series. I design learning opportunities, facilitate groups, and coach individuals, in addition to writing about the environment. Here’s more info about teaching, coaching, and facilitation.
I walked the Camino de Santiago. That means I know how to accomplish big goals. (Here’s more Camino information.)
Also, I live in Bend, Oregon with my husband. We get outside a lot!
