In 20 words or less, what is the best thing about being part of this department?
Building networks of love and learning with the amazing people that come into this work.

What is your advice to first years and sophomores about getting connected to this department?
Talk with people! Making connections and building community is a big part of our work. Also, think, think, it “ain’t” illegal yet.

What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned at K?
How to learn from and with the land.

What has been your favorite class at K? Why?
Any CES core class, because I have to think a lot.

How have you taken advantage of the open curriculum or experienced breadth in your education?
I gather methods and practices from different disciplines to always work on what is important to me, but in many different ways.

What experiential education opportunities have you participated in?
Study abroad, study away, internships, also everything in CES is experiential learning.

What is your SIP?
Using art to respond to these questions: what can mushrooms teach us about connection and community? How can mushrooms teach us about resistance/revolution? How has my family created practices with food, land, and community that resonate with the lessons I learn from mushroom communities?

What are your career aspirations/next steps after K?
Continue to work and learn with the land, build networks of solidarity and action, love the people in my communities.
