Though I'm the newest member of the Conservancy staff, I've been involved in a life-long love affair with the outdoors. And the best part of being a mom, for me, is sharing that love with my son! When we are together outdoors, we are our best selves, even with it's hard. I love the way I am able to simply be present when I'm outside, and that's why I joined this team. That's why I'm passionate about our work. I invite you to take a few minutes today to be present, outdoors, breathing the air, feeling the grass beneath your feet, listening to the breeze in the leaves. I guarantee you will feel more alive!
