Meet the faces of The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen.
Hi there! I'm Kathie, the Education Director at The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen.
I hail from Northern Virginia and have made my home in Lynchburg, VA. I have provided environmental education in the Central Virginia area for over 15 years. I am passionate about conservation and instilling the appreciation of Virginia’s beautiful and unique resources.
My educational background is in Biology and German. I earned my degrees at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. I am a member of Central Virginia Environmental Education Alliance and of the Advanced Educator with Virginia’s Environmental Educator’s Leadership Program. I spend my free time in the garden, woods or on the river. My husband and I have gratefully raised two bright young women, who share our values in caring for our natural world.
As the new Education Director for TNFW, I am eager to make connections with educational communities to carry out the foundation’s mission and to provide quality environmental education. I am also very excited to meet everyone from the Wintergreen community and discover your experiences in this beautiful area. I would like to say thank you to those who have already stepped up and warmly welcomed me to this community.
