At my core, I'm a geographer.  It's how I fell in love with this whole human-nature connection thing in the first place; a serendipitous find as an undergraduate pre-med transfer. 

I'm now a qualitative researcher by training and came to be so through great collaborations and mentoring, primarily during my tenure as a graduate research assistant in the Children, Youth & Environments Center at CU Boulder.  Prior to that, I plunked around as an environmental scientist in the Texas hill country.

Truth be told, I love hearing stories of people's connection to special places, particularly natural places.  To paraphrase a great book, everyone has a rock.  Or a tree.  Or a patch of grass.  Or, at least they should.  And I welcome any opportunity to help share that story of people and their place.
