Job title 
Headwaters Youth Program Coordinator
About me 
I am the National Headwaters Youth Program Coordinator based out of Asheville, NC. My most important task is to connect children to nature and their water resources through TU’s volunteer base and our partners. Calling the Blue Ridge Mountains "home" comes with its perks: I enjoy weekend hikes with my dog and husband, botanizing in one of the most biodiverse places on the planet , floating one of the many rivers, and exploring the newest culinary additions to Beer City.

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.” - Rachel Carson, The Sense of Wonder "If you wish your children to think deep thoughts, to know the holiest emotions, take them to the woods and hills, and give them the freedom of the meadows; the hills purify those who walk upon them" -Richard Jeffries, The Dewy Morn
