Leadership & Service

I have over a decade of experience as a volunteer forest steward where I have been leading a project to restore Cheasty Greenspace, SE Seattle's largest wooded parkland.  In this park, I often provide leadership with groups combining forest restoration with storytelling.  It's a great way to get out of the office, give back to the community, be in nature, and accomplish learning and development goals at the same time.

Leadership and Service events from 90 minutes to 4 hours and are customized for each group.
