Hello community! After a year working at Urban Adamah as a camp counselor and community educator, I am thrilled to be stepping into leadership as an Assistant Camp Director. My time on the farm continues my exploration of the interconnections between social justice, visionary leadership, transformational education, and nature connection, a journey that has included studying Peace & Conflict Studies at UC Berkeley, working on a farm in Hawaii, designing environmental/food/immigration justice service-learning trips, engaging girls in Making, training as a life coach, serving as a garden educator at the Edible Schoolyard, and teaching middle schoolers about climate resiliency. I deeply admire Urban Adamah’s work to connect youth with themselves, their community, and the natural world through Earth-based spirituality and mindfulness. I’m honored to leverage my experience as an educator to empower our summer camp staff to create the most joyous, nurturing, and unforgettable camp experience possible.

When I’m not on the farm, I love spending time with my housemates (I live in an intentional community), hosting dinner parties and house concerts, coaching visionary leaders, dreaming of the day I’ll adopt a dog, and watching the wind blow through trees.
