How did you first become connected with WNC?
I grew up in Brunswick and remember my family coming to the farm as a child to see the animals. I now have my own family and have settled in Freeport with my two boys and wife, Christina. We very much enjoy all the farm offers since the transformation that has taken place over the last 30 years. The camps, the dinners, and all the workings of a saltwater farm allow for a connection to nature and a direct link to understanding where our food comes from.
How do you hope to best contribute to WNC’s development through your tenure on the Board?
I always had a love for science and the workings of the world around us. As a science educator of over 15 years I encourage students to use the inquiry process and become aware citizens. I cannot think of a better location then WNC to be a base for these methods. Place-based learning and authentic science bring community and education together where students end by understanding and not memorizing content. My hope is that I can help to develop more experiences like this at WNC. Further, I hope to share the amazing science that is going on at WNC with other educational professionals and institutions.
What is your favorite thing about WNC?
My favorite thing about Wolfe’s Neck Center is the part it provides within our community. WNC is an establishment that links our busy lives with nature and allows a center for people to come together to experience growth and life. Whether it is driving out to see the baby lambs, dropping my kids off at a Summer Camp or taking a Sunday evening to see friends and celebrate the local food WNC provides at a Farm Dinner driving down the road to WNC I decompress and I think my blood pressure drops.← Back to Blog
