What I do at MNW
I manage the website, post on facebook, publish The Observer, our montlhy newsletter, curate blog content, design flyers, promote training courses, produce webinars, and lend a hand with Alder Montessori or wherever else I'm needed.

What I like about MNW
I love how fearless and agile MNW is.

A book (or book series)
My Life and Hard Times by James Thurber - hilarious!

Favorite food?
Mashed potatoes, with lots of butter. Butter makes everything better. Maybe I should have just said butter.

A hobby
Running in the woods.

First job
The Boulevard Movie Theater. Tickets were $1. I was fifteen. We got paid in cash and there was always leftover popcorn (with lots of butter) to take home.

Words to live by
Relentless. Forward. Progress.
