Five years ago I decided to move to the Pacific Northwest from Idaho not really knowing what to expect.  As an outdoor enthusiast that decision has turned out to be one of the best of my life, and over the past couple of years I have been looking for a way to give back.  Being a part of The Nature Consortium is the perfect way for me to do that, and I’m excited to pass on my enthusiasm for the outdoors and to connect people with arts and nature in a positive and meaningful way.

9 years board member; 14+ volunteering with the Nature Consortium. I have nothing but the utmost enthusiasm and respect for this group – it’s the reason I have stayed with it so long! I am a nurse, currently working in the UW’s Dept. of Environmental Health & Safety. It feels so good to be a part of something that is making an impact, not only on our Duwamish greenbelt & forest restoration, but also touching the lives of kids in our community, and harnessing the talent of our local artists! Please note: the excellent Annual Arts-in-Nature + Music fest (that started the whole thing rolling in 1998!) is a must-experience event in mid-August! I hope I see you there!

As a newcomer to the Pacific Northwest, I have become enthralled with the beauty of the environment here. I was excited to find Nature Consortium; an organization that supports the conservation of the Puget Sound area. I hope that Nature Consortium’s efforts to connect people arts and nature will allow future generations to explore and enjoy the same natural beauty we do now. In my free time, you can find me outdoors jogging or hiking with my dog. I enjoy spending my time in the great outdoors with people I love.
