I grew up in Hunterdon County and I am proud to be a “Jersey Girl.” Two of my passions are making baskets and being out of doors. I enjoy working with my hands, being creative, and sharing what I know with others. My skills and knowledge have been acquired as a Girl Scout, living on a farm growing up, homesteading in West Virginia, traveling around the U.S. and Europe, working as a professional basket maker and punch-list carpenter, holding a number of Boy Scout leadership titles while raising my two sons, and working for Parks since 2000.
My responsibilities at Parks include organizing Touch-A-Truck and co-leading our Earth Day Celebration. I bring to you art instructors, fiber artists, history programs, and more. I enjoy the adventure of visiting interesting places while running park van trips to experience history, art, and fun. Being a jack of many programs and the master of basket making, I offer Basketry Workshops, Clay Workshops, Jewelry Workshops, Woodworking Workshops, Earth-Inspired Crafts, Hiking Knowledge, Camping Knowledge, Knife Safety, Camp Tools, Knot Tying, Fire Building, and Initiatives & Team Building.
Please contact me if you are interested in setting up a group program or offering a class here. I’m able to tailor most programs to the needs of your group.
