Hiking makes me happy.

My Work

I teach English and social studies online and in person, working with students as young as 7th grade, through early college. I also work as a freelance writer with experience writing for newspapers and magazines. In the last couple of years, I have become active with a hiking group, attending and leading group trips throughout Michigan, focusing on beginning backpacking skills.

About Me

My parents encouraged a love of nature from the time I was a small child; pontoon rides on Houghton Lake, fishing from the dock, and collecting fossils along the shore. We cross-country skied and snowmobiled in the winter, and sailed Lake Michigan in the summer. My love of hiking and backpacking comes from my desire to explore all of Michigan’s beauty, and escape the humdrum of everyday life.
