What is your favorite thing about being a naturalist?

I would definitely say my favorite thing about being a naturalist, especially here at Wolf Ridge, would be the fact that I get to spend most of my day in my favorite place (the outdoors, duh…) with some seriously awesome people (kids, other nats, cool mentors, and more).

 

Choose a color that best matches your personality. Why did you choose that color?

The color that best matches my personality would be turquoise because it is the perfect combination of the calmness seen in blues, green’s strength and growth, and the uplifting feel of yellow.

 

If you could fill a bathtub with anything, what would it be?

I could totally go for a bath in some nice warm chai latte because 1) it is my favorite drink, and 2) it tastes like fall, which is my favorite season!

 

If grapes could talk, what do you think they would say?

“Don’t squeeze me or I might pop!”

 

Are you more of an eggs and toast for breakfast type of person or cereal and oatmeal type?

I am totally a cereal person. I will even sometimes do a little childhood throwback and treat myself with some Lucky Charms – the horseshoes are my favorites, so I save them for last!

 

What song would be the soundtrack to your life?

The song representing the soundtrack of my life would be For Good from the musical Wicked. There have been so many wonderful people in my life that have impacted my life in so many ways and I am forever grateful for their influence on my life – “Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” I hope that someday I can be that positive influential force and mentor in someone else’s life.

What is your favorite thing about being a naturalist?

Making connections with great students by sharing, exploring, and growing together.

 

Choose a color that best matches your personality. Why did you choose that color?

Dusty Rose. Muted and subdued, yet warm.

 

If you could fill a bathtub with anything, what would it be?

Am I in the bathtub as well? If so then definitely kittens, without a doubt.

 

If grapes could talk, what do you think they would say?

Make grape flavored things that actually taste like me, stupid humans.

 

Are you more of an eggs and toast for breakfast type of person or cereal and oatmeal type?

Eggs over easy, eggs in a basket, scrambled with bacon, sunny side up, eggs benedict….

 

What song would be the soundtrack to your life?

Helplessness Blues by Fleet Foxes sums it all up pretty well. Look it up – sounds sadder than it actually is.
