I love to introduce people to special places. I have traveled widely across the country, and have often wished I had access to my own personal guide who could do what I now offer you.

I started my naturalist career on the East Coast after spending many years as a psychotherapist there. I have worked as a guide and naturalist at Mt. St. Helens in Washington, at Corkscrew Swamp Bird Sanctuary in Florida and at Muir Woods north of San Francisco.

I was drawn to Humboldt County along California’s northwestern coast by the beauty of Coast Redwoods, and have worked at both Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park and at Humboldt Redwoods State Park. I have led programs for the local chapter of the California Native Plant Society and Friends of the Dunes, with whom I am an active docent. I am usually to be found out in the natural world learning something new, or just rejoicing in the magnificence of this spectacular area.
