Before Quest Forward Academy

I worked in environmental education for 5 years prior to becoming a farmer! I spent two years in agriculture then opened up my own outdoor education program called Earth Camp, based in Sebastopol. 

In 2008, I went back to school to get my teaching credential and was hired at Summerfield Waldorf High School immediately. I spent seven years at Summerfield teaching biology, chemistry, earth science, advanced science courses, and PE. 

In March of 2017, I applied to Quest Forward Academy and began working here that summer.
