Nature girl by design. Eco Warrior by calling.

As the daughter of a biology teacher, who learned to swim in the ocean at New York beaches, Greenpeace's "Save The Whales" hooked me at a young age.

  

When we moved to New Jersey, a house with woods behind it and the Girl Scouts quickly drew me into the outdoor experience and camping.

  

With a love of literature, I was an English major in college first, but a love of the ocean, scuba diving, and a passion for conservation told me Environmental Science was the direction to go in. My Master's at Antioch sealed the deal.

  

I write about and photograph my outdoor adventures and have choreographed ocean and nature dance recitals.
