Head of School
I am the Head of School for Explorations Academy. For the last 18 years, I have been an international educational practitioner who manages change in complex systems. I approach the school ecosystem recognizing that it is intertwined with the health of the larger community, the planet and each individual. I worked for the largest national and statewide conservation education, advocacy, and stewardship organizations designing, implementing, and evaluating programs for whole school systems that educate for sustainability. In my free time I build tiny homes, propagate plants, and make bamboo flutes. I am a living experimenter who creates spaces for community gatherings, performs avant-garde flute concerts and dotes on her teenage son. I educate for sustainability because it creates favorable conditions for the healthy growth and development of learners of all ages and supports our collective ability to live well within the laws and limits of nature.
