Hello, I am the happy owner of Bramble Glen. I love nature, art, travel, and playing outdoors with kids! I have a degree in Geography and work as a professional photographer and outdoor educator.
When my children were young, I became interested in childhood development and early education. I wanted to be involved in their education and had a deep desire to get them exploring. In 2012, I started a nature-based preschool program, which has expanded into an after-school program. I started Nature Discovery classes because I wanted to spark natural learning by promoting exploration, discovery, and creativity. I have fond childhood memories of walking across logs, climbing trees, digging, and building with sticks. I am thrilled that current research shows that exploring nature helps promote independent thinking, imagination, confidence, physical balance, and creative problem-solving.
When I am not leading outdoor activities for kids, you can find me (well, not literally because I like a few days of quiet, solitary creative time) writing stories, hiking, and capturing nature with my camera. I also enjoy capturing portraits of people, who are my other favorite subject. If you are interested, you can see my photography work by clicking the camera icon. Thanks for visiting!
