Chicago, IL & Lake Tomahawk, WI

Background and Interests

My background is in communications.  I have run my own firm for nearly 20 years and previously worked at a large firm, boutique and as a reporter.  I majored in journalism, public relations and have an MBA with marketing focus.  I’ve been involved in the Master Gardener program in Illinois & have done agility & dog therapy with my Golden.

Reasons for signing up for this program

I want to understand how to explore & better understand the forests & lakes & all the stuff I see around me.

Specific naturalist areas of interest

Here’s the short answer!  “I’m someone that looks forward to and is eagerly engaging in continuing to learn.”

What has been the highlight of your WIMN training?

It’s all good!  I can’t narrow it down, so to name a few…the expert presenters, we are learning from the best!  My classmates…I find something interesting about each of them.  The Center…I haven’t been up here much.  Now I know what I’ve been missing – from grounds/programs to staff!

My nature slogan that might change the world!

Go take a hike!
