Pronouns: she/her

What’s your role/what do you do @ THC? I do a lot of behind the scenes work involving data entry, grant research and writing, donor appeal and stewardship coordination as well as general program support.

*Favorite place to adventure i.e. favorite fishing hole, hike, lake, etc.? My favorite places to venture are hot springs, mountains and lakes in and around the Sawtooth Mountains. I look forward to doing some weekend backpacking trips with my partner and dogs this summer in the Pioneer mountains and near Pettit Lake.

*What do you love most about our community? As a newer community member, I have met some wonderful people who have shown me the kind, caring and generous way of people here in the Wood River Valley. I am grateful for meeting folks like this here as it made me feel welcome when I didn’t know anyone. I am so grateful to be at a community centered organization where everyone is welcome and celebrated.

*If you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be and why? I have long debated this question and have two answers. As a vegetable, I would be fennel because it is delicious raw or cooked and it is often overlooked when it is a wonderful addition to many kinds of cuisine. I would also be garlic, because it is essential to flavoring food and has significant medicinal benefits to your health. I also love growing garlic as it overwinters in my garden beds and it is a sure sign that spring is on the way once the greens pop out of the soil.
