I find peace and sanity in outdoor recreating and exploring. Hiking, biking, kayaking, running, foraging and camping are a few favorites, but I always look forward to the winter months. Both nordic and alpine skiing always reset my pace and I am grateful for a place like MWP to do just that. I joined the MWP Board of Directors in 2021 because I was impressed with an organization that provides a diversity of all season trails, top notch grooming and community programs and events. As a seasoned Naturalist and non-profit manager my intentions are to support the organizational management structure, define and meet organizational goals and to support existing and build new programs.
In addition, as a mother and environmental educator I am impressed by the outdoor programming, such as the Story Walks, partnership with the Minocqua Public Library for free family passes, evening programs in partnership with the Northwoods Wildlife Center, educational tools at the shelter/fire pit, and the learn to ski Wolf Pups program. I also appreciate the art along the trails. As a board member I will continue to support these programs, encourage partnerships and our community to experience all MWP has to offer. Hope to see you on the trails!
