Hello! I am the happy owner of Bramble Glen. I love nature, art, road trips, and playing outdoors with kids. I have a degree in Geography and work as a professional photographer and outdoor educator. I also love to write - both fiction and nonfiction for children.

 

When my children were young, I became interested in childhood development and early education. I had a deep desire to get them exploring the natural world.  In 2012, I started a nature-based preschool program, which has expanded into an after-school program. I created 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 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!
