What I like about MNW
The welcoming and authentic spirit of the staff. It is a wonderful reflection of the community Dr. Montessori desired to build through her work.
A favorite destination
Any National Park – My husband Scott and I are working on visiting them all.
Hiking and photography – The Pacific Northwest is an amazing place for both, although no photograph can truly capture the experience of standing in these beautiful places. I volunteer at Portland Literacy Council teaching ESL and GED prep.
Words to live by
"Always leave a place better than you found it."
Helping people be their best self.
Coast or Mountains?
Mountains, but the Oregon Coast is a close second!
