Kelsey grew up swimming the rivers and hiking the trails of Northern California with her family and found her love for nature and outdoor education there. Through the years, she has worked at several play-based and outdoor programs, as well as working in the roles of a summer camp counselor, a music teacher, and working in school gardens, eventually finding Waldorf to be the perfect educational complement to her passions. She attends Sierra College, studying Early Childhood Education and Plant Science. Kelsey was drawn to Live Oak by its sprawling forested campus and enjoys hiking the trails as often as she can. Outside of school, you can find her cooking, foraging, and camping.
