I have always sought to spend my time outdoors.  In the summers leading up to my graduation from college at UVM I lead canoeing, hiking and kayaking trips in the White Mountains and worked on organic farms in Maine and New Hampshire.  After college, I worked as a Garden Coordinator and Naturalist at an Outdoor School in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. After four years in California, I was ready to come back to Maine to start my own organization, ReTreeUS (planting educational orchards in schools While getting ReTreeUS off the ground, I was attracted to the beauty of the Wolfe’s Neck and to the essence of what is being done at the farm, education in sustainable agriculture.  I got hooked by the magic of this place, I have been here for 5 years now, time flies when you’re having fun…

I manage the Teen Ag program, growing fruits and vegetables and inspiring future food system leaders.

When I’m not at Wolfe’s Neck I manage the ReTreeUS program, swim, canoe, hike, ski, cook with farm grown goodness and going surfing whenever possible.  I also enjoy long walks on the beach.
