Since 1995, I've been designing and implementing interpretive public programs for all audiences and professional development opportunities for colleagues, teachers, agencies and organizations.  Park interpretation is my lineage to guiding forest bathing.   Over the decades, I have sought opportunities to expand my professional training and grow in my craft.  I am a certified forest therapy guide through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs, a certified heritage interpreter with the National Association for Interpretation, a certified environmental educator-professional with the Michigan Alliance for Environmental and Outdoor Education, and a certified professional with the National Recreation and Park Association.  I hold facilitator certifications in Project Learning Tree and other national and state curriculum programs.  In 2010 I launched my small business, Natureology (www.natureology.me).  Ice fishing is a passion.
