“The PassageWay element that is the most important to me is Nature. Nature is important to me because I love being in the outdoors, especially to go hiking. My favorite hiking places include the Sand Rock Cliffs in Grantsburg, WI, Taylor’s Falls, and Gooseberry Falls.”

“Hope is the reason I wanted to be at Northwest Passage. To me, Hope is believing that life will go in a positive direction. I think it is easy for people to lose hope and think they will always be stuck in any given situation. When I came to Northwest Passage, my goal was to bring positivity and help others regain their hope. We all need hope in order to make positive strides in our lives. When we regain hope, that is when the best is yet to come!”

Nature: The outdoors is a great way to clear one’s mind and appreciate the beauty in which we live. As a WI Master Naturalist I hope to pass on my love of nature. I am passionate about gardening. Relaxation: Working overnights I try to find different ways to relax for myself and others, especially kids that have a hard time sleeping. I incorporate breathing exercises, crocheting/knitting, and as many naps as I can get into my own daily routine. Service: As a lover of all Crafts I teach the kids that want to learn to crochet. All three of the girls units have made afghans that were donated to a women’s shelter in the area.”
