"After living in South America for 5 years, I became interested in nature and built a passion for outdoor learning with children, animals, and adults alike, where we all learn and experience new things.

I believe children learn best in natural environments, and nature is a perfect resource. In my spare time, I enjoy going for walks, partaking in yoga and trying outdoor activities.

I am excited to work in the Forest School and to create sessions for all to enjoy!"
