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 the Advanced Educator with Virginia’s Environmental Educator’s Leadership Program and the Central Blue Ridge Master Naturalist Chapter. 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 Education Director for TNFW, I provide environmental education for the Nelson County community and to surrounding counties. I love Wintergreen for it’s near perfect beauty and the fellowship of the Wintergreen community. I thoroughly enjoy offering programs, activities and “road trips” for our members; and I especially appreciate each and every volunteer who has made this position the best I ever had. Thank you!
