I CAME TO BOSS BECAUSE...

My husband, Matt, and I decided on a lifestyle/career change in 2008. He has chosen a path as a primitive skills instructor and that road has led us to BOSS. I began a freelance graphic design business and decided to rethink the way I live by weaving healthier day-to-day practices into my lifestyle. BOSS has given me the opportunity to expand my knowledge on everything from primitive skills to raising chickens and tending the community garden. BOSS offers a vast pool of knowledge as shown by the diversity of the staff and I am excited to be a part of the group!

I TEACH AT BOSS BECAUSE...

Sharing knowledge, fostering stewardship for the land, building community, and empowering humanity are all elements of the BOSS experience. The instructors I have met are inspirational in their passion, creativity, and insight in direct relationship to the natural world. My student course allowed me to see the heart of BOSS. Teaching here is a way to continue learning and honing my skills all while giving back to the students and BOSS community.
