Residency

Eagle River, WI

Background and Interests

My background is in healthcare.  My special interests include birding, identifying moths and learning about the plants & animals of the Northwoods.

Reasons for signing up for this program

I love the outdoors!  Learning more about our natural world & how to become more involved was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.

Someone who feels blessed to be living in the Northwoods.

What has been the highlight of your WIMN training?

Highlights of the WIMN have been getting to know other people with similar interests & becoming acquainted with some of the experts working in Northern Wisconsin.  The WIMN training program is exceptional.  The instructors have been terrific leaders/educators, there is a good mix of classroom & outdoor activities, the materials are extensive & relevant.  I believe some WIMN training programs take place during the course of a week—I much prefer this schedule of meeting 1 or 2 times a week over the course of a month.

My nature slogan that might change the world!

Go outside, keep your eyes open & be amazed!
