In Their Own Words

My Background:

I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, very much a city girl. During college I became interested in food and farming, eventually moving west to work in sustainable agriculture. In time, I landed at Sunset Magazine, where I started as test garden coordinator (designing and building small gardens for publication in the magazine) and culminated as Garden Editor. 


My Work at OAEC:

It’s my job to work with Brock and Kate to build awareness and acceptance of beaver and process-based restoration among the general public, landowners, restoration professionals and resource agencies.


Why My Work Matters:

I’m helping others by sparking enthusiasm around restoring our watersheds. Given life depends on water, it doesn’t get much better than that.

My Hero

My grandma Rose, who survived the Holocaust and went on to be a soft, loving, adoring grandmother.


My passions

Dancing and gardening, specifically: weeding.


When my life is over I want to be remembered for

My sense of humor.
